Oprah Uses Twitter to Donate Malaria Nets

Oprah Uses Twitter to Donate Malaria Nets

Oprah has jumped on the ever-popular Twitter train.

Recently, Ashton Kutcher  used Twitter to raise money for fighting malaria and both CNN as well as Ryan Secrest announced that they would be matching Kutcher’s donation of 10,000. Seacrest Twittered that he wanted Oprah and P. Diddy match those donations, and Oprah, not to be outdone by any celebrity, joined Twitter today and announced that she would be donating 20,000 nets.

Winfrey posted her first Tweet during The Oprah Winfrey Show today, which featured Kutcher and Evan Williams, the Twitter CEO.

“Our Oprah’s Friday live shows are always about what is making headlines and what is in the news, so we wanted to talk to Ashton Kutcher about his quest for 1 million Twitter followers and the challenge with CNN,” said Don Halcombe, a spokesperson for Harpo Productions. “I think [Oprah’s participation] evolved as part of that conversation and it made more sense to talk about [Twitter] through actually participating in that technology.”

    Most affiliate marketers who are having success these days are promoting Cost Per Action, or CPA offers. This is because affiliates don’t need to close high ticket sales in order to get credited for a conversion. It’s really the future of affiliate marketing!
