Here’s How Oprah Made $12 Million By Tweeting About Bread

By Sarah Carroll

Media maven Oprah Winfrey made $12 million yesterday (Jan. 26) with just one tweet.

The former talk show host recently joined Weight Watchers as a spokesperson and part-owner, and she’s already been able to drop 26 pounds while still indulging in one of her favorite vices…bread.

“I lost 26 pounds, and I have eaten bread every single day,” Winfrey proudly proclaimed in a 32-second video she posted on Twitter.

Weight Watchers shares rose $2 after that tweet. Since Oprah owns 6 million shares, that means she instantly became $12 million richer.
