People making thousands of dollars on twiter

So I came across this article Meet The Network Of Guys Making Thousands Of Dollars Tweeting As “Common White Girls” a couple of weeks ago, and I have to tell you, my first thought after reading it was: wtf is wrong with me? There are people making a ton of money from crap like this and I am struggling to keep afloat, money wise.
And thus a plan was devised. Well, more like an idea of a concept of a plan, but whatever. So I made a parody twitter account myself after I read the article and I am now trying to grow it. If  any of you are thinking ‘dude, growing a twitter to that kind of following is a lot of work’, trust me, I am aware. My goal at the moment is to grow it to about 12-15 thousand followers in about a year. This seems feasible. It will also require a lot of work, and being the procrastinator that I am, I have not yet begun to put in it the work I should.
To this end I have also read a lot on growing a twitter account, and I have to say, without investing a little money, I won’t be able to grow it this big this fast. I will make a list of the services and websites I will be using to accomplish my goals, and post it in a future article, so stay tuned for that.
The main issue I am facing right now is content. I need to come with stuff similar to what the guys from the article I mentioned above are doing, and I have to tell, that is a problem. You might ask how can you make that problem not be a problem? Well, I am glad you did ask that. The answer is: recycled content. I will spend a lot of time recycling some of their older content, make slight changes and post it on my account. There will be a lot of retweets of other viral content also, of course.
This is my battle plan for the moment. In the next article I will detail what tools i plan on using and how I plan on using them. Keep your fingers crossed! If all goes well by this time next year this twitter account will be making me somewhere around 400-500$ a month. Just so you know I started laughing as soon as I ended that sentence 🙂 Now lets be real, even if all goes well, a twitter account with 15 000 followers, of witch maybe 55-60% are active will probably be able to make somewhere around 200$/month. More only if the content is really catchy.
That’s it for today, see you on my next article.
UPDATE 02.03.2015: I have tried and have I failed. I just can not come up with crap that teens would subscribe to. Recycling content turns out not to be a viable solution for a person who already has a job. It consumes to much of my time and I would only see returns after a long while. Plus in order to get the exposure I wanted I would have had to pay some of the guys with several hundreds of thousand of followers to promote me. And that is just not going to happen. So this is the end of this project. I will automate some content for the account, maybe I will get back to it someday, but for now, it is done.
