  • If Kim Kardashian gets $10,000 a tweet, last week she made...

    Kim Kardashian

    Kim Kardashian is a big Tweeter, even by Hollywood standards.

    And there might be a good reason for that.

    Money.

    Advertising Age reported that Kardashian is a “publisher” with in-stream advertising company Ad.ly. The co-founder of Ad.ly, Derek Rey, told PRNewser that Kardashian can command $10,000 per tweet.

    He also said that Ad.ly’s publishers are limited to one paid tweet per day.

    SLIDESHOW: The lovely and talented Kim Kardashian.

    The curvy starlet has 2.7 million Twitter followers, and her stream is often littered with product mentions. But Kardashian denied that she’s raking in big bucks with her Twitter account. “Am I not allowed to talk about something I like without people assuming I must have been paid to do it?” she asked rhetorically.

    FOX411.com took a look at Kardashian’s Twitter account for the week ending January 31, 2010. We found nine Tweets for the following eight brands: her upcoming Bebe line (with Bebe spelled incorrectly), ShoeDazzle shoes, Muscle Flex Vata fitness gear (twice), Brian Lichtenberg swim suits, Dan Tana’s restaurant, celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson, QuickTrim weight loss supplements, and CVS pharmacy.

    Now, we know she already has deals with QuickTrim and Bebe. If for argument’s sake the remaining brands mentioned were Ad.ly clients, she would have made up to $70,ooo with her allotted seven Tweets.

    In one week. With seven tweets of 140 characters or less.

    Say she did that for a year, with a couple of weeks off for holidays. That’s $70,000 x 50 weeks.

    Which equals $3.5 million.

    “I want my fans to know what products, gadgets, foods, clothes and beauty products I like and I love sharing all that with my fans,” Kardashian said when defending her product tweets.

    See below to see if you think these are innocent “sharings,” more lucrative Twitter “publisher” mentions, or both.
