10 Excellent Ways to Make Money on Twitter in 2022


Have you ever thought of making money off of Twitter? As hard as it is to believe, Twitter can be an excellent source of income if you know what to do. Below is a list of ten ways to make money from Twitter with only little effort.

However, before you can get started, you need to make sure you have a good amount of followers. 

Steps to follow to get more followers:

  1. Make sure you have an engaging and aesthetically pleasing profile

  • Making a profile and profile picture that is pleasant to look at will increase the number of people who click on your profile, and then it's up to the content to make sure the viewer stays and eventually becomes a follower.
  • Decide on a theme and niche for your profile. Decide on three to four colours and stick to them for everything you do on your profile. Furthermore, decide on a niche/topic and be consistent in tweeting about it. For example, if your topic is testing new trendy products then make sure all your tweets are somewhat related to new and trendy products. 
  • The background space behind the profile picture is essentially your whiteboard, which is where you must list all your accomplishments and sponsorships, etc. You can also give a hint about what your theme is. 

  1. Be active on Twitter

This is the most essential and basic requirement to make a successful profile. Make sure you have a routine for posting and that you stick to it no matter what. This will give the viewers a sense of consistency and motivate them to return to your profile every time you post something. 

  1. Follow people relevant to your niche

According to the niche you chose in step one, follow people who have similar topics. This puts you on those people’s radars which might be beneficial. Furthermore, people who follow them will be able to see your profile and allow you to gain more people who are interested in your niche. 

  1. Promote your Twitter profile on your other social media platforms

Make sure that you provide a link to follow you on Twitter on any other social media platforms you have like Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, etc. 

Now, once you have made a good profile and gained a substantial amount of followers, it’s time to get to the money-earning part. 

Ten Excellent ways to make money on Twitter

  1. Become a tweet ghostwriter

If you’re good at grammar and have learnt the trick to writing short yet informative tweets then you can easily earn a good amount of money through this method. Most business owners have Twitter profiles, however, they don’t have the time to think about creating a tweet, the best time to send it out, or even how to engage with their followers. This is why they hire other people, mostly people with a substantial following themselves, to ghostwrite for them. You can earn up to $1000 per tweet. 

  1. Become an affiliate marketer

One of the fastest and easiest methods of earning on any social platform, especially one as widely used as Twitter, is affiliate marketing. The basic definition is that ‘you earn a commission every time you promote and sell a product and/or service’. 

To be able to successfully affiliate, first make sure to get in touch with a company that sells a product that is in line with your niche and theme. By doing this you’re increasing your chances of sending customers to the company you’re affiliating with. Next, make sure to either test it out or do thorough research on the product you’re affiliating with. Talk to someone from the company, understand what they stand for, and then ask them if you can affiliate with them. This will increase your chances of getting the deal. 

If you’re someone who has never affiliated before, I highly recommend checking out Gumroad (website), and Twitter Affiliate Mastery (course). 

  1. Post sponsored tweets

Brands have so much competition in today’s capitalistic and competitive market. This is why they seek out influencers with large followings and pay them to advertise their products. To find brands that are interested in sponsoring, there are various online portals you can check out. One of the best options for sponsorships on Twitter specifically is SponsoredTweets. 

  1. Sell your Twitter account

If you have a Twitter account with a generous following then you can make money by selling your account. Various different platforms engage in this kind of purchase. One of the most used ones is ViralAccounts.com. Of course, there are some expectations that you must meet of theirs, but otherwise, the process should be just like any other online buying transaction. The expectations for ViralAccounts are: at least 50,000 followers, a good per post retweet count, and assurance that your account and everything you have posted is legal and safe. If your profile meets all those criteria then you can sell your account and earn a good sum of money. 

  1. Crowdsource

Crowdsourcing has been one of the most beloved methods of funding for years in the business industry. Twitter makes the process much more effective and easy. Crowdsourcing means asking your followers for ideas and/or funds for a business venture you would like to start. You will be surprised how many donations you might receive, especially if it's an idea that was pitched to you by your followers. 

Be sure to read a substantial amount of use studies before you begin. 

  1. Monetise your account

You are probably not aware of this, but there is a way to earn money on Twitter, that is provided by Twitter itself. However, it is only available to users who are part of the ‘Amplify Publisher Program’. To become eligible for the program, make sure you are: Twitter verified, start publishing videos if you’re not at the moment, publish ‘safe for ads’ content consistently according to the guidelines, and accept the Terms and Conditions provided to you by the program itself. 

After you have successfully become a part of the program, you will be able to earn money by showing ads before they can view your content. The companies whose ads you will be showing will pay you for advertising their product. 

If you have a brand and/or website

7.   Sell your products

You can use Twitter as a selling portal and advertise your products on your profile. This way you can keep 100% of all your sales. To set up a successful business make sure that you have a professional profile, and that you offer various sales and offers to keep your customers coming back. 

8.   Build your email list

An email list is one of the most effective ways of making sure your previous customers come back, and that you are able to reach the right audience for the product you’re selling. You can use platforms like OptinMonster, etc. to build a good and effective email list. OptinMonster also allows you to link your Twitter account and add your usual traffic to the emailing list. Emailing people is more personal, is more likely to be opened, and has had a 320% increase in sales. If you don’t have an email list yet, I highly recommend you build one. 

9.   Send your Twitter traffic to your website

Twitter has approximately 400 million active users. This unbelievably high number can help you get a good amount of website traffic. You can do this by making ads for any new product you release on your website, mentioning the link to your website in the bio, etc. Sending your followers to your website can help in getting more customers with relative ease. 

10. Run a giveaway

Giveaways are not only an excellent way to boost your following, but it has also shown to increase the number of customers for the brand. Even though it initially requires an investment, the payout is much higher. 

If you’re willing to spend a little bit of extra money, then you can use WordPress to run your giveaways, which are incredibly user-friendly, and can help you boost your following with the help of their employed experts. 


How many followers do you need to make money on Twitter?

You can make money even with less than 1000 followers. However, the amount of money you earn, and how many sponsorships/partnerships you will be able to secure are dependent on the number of followers. Therefore, the more followers you have, the higher the amount of money it is possible for you to make. 


Being able to earn money from Twitter may take some time, but the end will be more than satisfactory, I assure you. Happy tweeting!
