So today is my birthday and I’ve been getting a ton of Happy Birthday wishes on Twitter, IM, Facebook, etc. While I would have loved to reply to each birthday greeting personally, it was impossible because of the sheer volume. What I did instead was sent out the Twitter tweet at top of this post.
The tweet was made in fun and I didn’t really expect anyone to take it seriously. However, some followers actually fire up their PayPal account and sent me money! So far, I’ve received enough for a really nice big night out on the town. I want to thank to following people who were kind enough to take my tweet literally and send me money on my birthday.
To those who sent me a Happy Birthday wish, I thank you. To the people above, who sent me money as well as a Happy Birthday wish, I thank you for the big birthday night out! Who would have thought you can use Twitter to make money on your birthday?
