    Now that Twitter has a market capitalization of at least $24.9 billion, more than a few of the social network’s 230 million users have noticed their tweets are making other people rich. Many people want their cut.
    So what would that be exactly? TIME has crunched the numbers. Plug in your username (or anyone else’s) below to find out how valuable your Twitter feed is.

    $112,923 for @howardstern
    $21,523,202 for @justinbieber
    $1,170 for @Gary_Puppet

    Wait, $24.9 billion? Howard tweets and gets nothing. Time to call his lawyers.

    Howard wants to be paid for Twitter so that he can hire a joke writer and someone to oversee it so he can seem interesting.

    They owe him $100 000 just for that hilarious bit of taking pictures of his feet at his console holding food.

    Howard will piss on his twitter account if they don't start paying him some of that sweet sweet moolah.

    Howard could also try to cash in by following the lead of a tech site that sued a former employee over his Twitter followers and wanted $2.50 per follower. Case settled, so it's unclear if he had to pay the site any money.

    http://mashable.com/2012/12/03/noah-kravitz-lawsuit-twitter/

    "But a dispute over back pay erupted into a lawsuit where PhoneDog wanted compensation for all followers Kravitz acquired while working for the company. The suit became a cause célèbre as it was the first to put a price tag on the worth of a Twitter user, and tackled the question of who owns a professional Twitter account started during a period of employment. Kravitz will retain custody of @noahkravitz."

    And in the mean time, can thedirty.com give me a measly stipend for giving them good dirt to post on their site about the Sterns?

    Robin what they don't realize is they are getting twice the effort from me because @sternshow is also worth another 100K +

    And to think, Howard pays for all those fake facebook and twitter followers, just to make someone else money!
