T.O. says he is broke, so he has to make money any way possible to pay off his mounting legal and child support bills.
The one way he is doing that is buy getting paid tweet. He isn’t quite making Kim Kardashian money for his tweets, but he is doing alright.
Here are the details.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Mr. O says he makes between $2,800 – $6,400 per tweet. In one instance, he pulled in $2,800 to tweet for Cutters — a football glove company. He raked in $4,800 for tweeting on behalf of Old Navy. And he got $6,400 for tweeting about Fantapper — a sports social networking site.
T.O. also discloses he’s earned residual money for an episode of “Punk’d” and for his appearances on “Any Given Sunday” and “Necessary Roughness.”
And get this … T.O. scored $10 grand for promoting Yahoo Fantasy Football and $20 grand for promoting a Super Bowl party.
It is no different than a Basketball Wife or anyone else who is popular on twitter. If I was T.O. I would be pumping out 100 tweets a day to get his finances back in order since the NFL doesn’t appear it will be calling any time soon.
