Over at Sponsored Tweets, more than 39,000 socially networked celebrities, authors, dreamers, and publicity seekers are trying to sell their tweets to advertisers.

Here’s more about the platform: “Sponsored Tweets is a platform that helps you monetize Tweets created via Twitter. You have to be on Twitter first, so go to their website and sign up if you haven’t already … Disclosure is an essential element of the Sponsored Tweets platform and we systematically force all of our participants to disclose within each tweet. We require disclosure to protect you, your audience and the advertiser.”
