You’re telling the world your play-by-play of the latest Lost episode and filling in followers when you arrive @Starbucks. But what if you could actually do something really useful with those tweets—like earning money? Turn your tweets into cash with these tips, and don't forget to follow @Bargainist!

Sell Your Background - Your Twitter background is like a billboard and advertisers are willing to pay you to put their logo or information there. Services like Twittad connect you with an advertiser. Set your price and the length their ad will run. You can choose to carry their ad from three days to a month.

Sell Your Tweets - Advertisers want to get their messages to your followers. And they’ll pay you to send them out. Check out Sponsored Tweets, Magpie, and Assetize. They all work similarly in that you set your price and approve the advertiser tweet. Once it goes out to your followers you earn money.

Sell Your Stuff - If you have something to sell, Twitter is a great way to promote it. Whether you’re selling products on Amazon, eBay or Etsy, use Twitter as a way to boost sales and make cash.

Promote Your Blog - If you’ve got a blog, promote it with Twitter. You’ll boost your traffic which means you can earn more money using blog advertising like Google AdWords. The higher the traffic your blog receives the more money you’ll have the potential to earn.

Enter Contests - From free books to cold cash, Twitter giveaways and contests are happening constantly. Think of it like playing the lottery without the expense of the ticket and with way better odds. Find contests through this Sweepstakes Forum, or by hunting for the words “contest” and “giveaway” using Twitter Search. Your tweets could win you some great prizes.
