Ah yes, the next little piece of Twitter fun has arrived. It’s called TweetValue, and of course it supposedly tells you the value of your Twitter account.

I put my Twitter account in and it said my account is valued at $1,551. It then asked if I wanted to try to sell it; I can’t figure out why I’d want to do such a thing. It also seems to be predicated on having lots of followers, as I tested some other names and saw that’s pretty much the case.

So, there you go; not only just a touch of fun on a hot Saturday morning, but one of my shorter posts in a long time to boot. Get out of the house!

Unless their name was also Mitch, who would want to buy it????

Which is kind of my point, Sire, but we both know there are a lot of Twitter names that aren’t the names of people.

Well, I guess I better keep working because my twitter value is not enough to retire on.
It must also go by something other than number of followers because my dogs have more followers than I do yet, their $ value is less than mine. Yes, our dogs have more followers than any of us in the house.

That’s a shame, Sheryl; I don’t know that I’d want to admit that to too many people. lol

Does twitter actually allow you to sell your account? I’d think they’d have a policy in place like Ebay has, where you can’t change Paypal accounts or names and stuff without a difficult approval process.

I don’t know, Bob, but truthfully, how would they know? I mean, say your Twitter name was “bobbles”. You can always change email addresses, so whose to say it wasn’t just an address change? They don’t pay attention to names, so I wouldn’t think they’d even know.

If someone would offer me 1000 dollar I would sell it without a second thought. The next day I would create a new account and then send a message to all my old followers.

I’m not sure I’d sell my Twitter name; after all, it’s somewhat associated with my business persona.
