      a LOT of companies PAY for getting tweets from celebrities, and this is
      normal practice everywhere
      Nothign wrong with that.
      WIRED magazine, did a interview with a brazilian guy, Rafinha Bastos, that
      is considered the "King of Twitter" wordlwide
      He CHARGES US$ 4.000,00 for one tweet if a Company wants him to tweet about
      something, and he has 1.900.000 followers


      Also, one of the biggest celular telephone company in Brazil, called Claro
      (clear) pays US$ 150.000,00 a MONTH to Ronaldo, the soccer player, just to
      have their brand name on his twitter perfil. He has almost 1.500.000
      You can check that here :
