WOMAN. LOVES. BREAD (and MONEY).
Last October, Oprah bought a 10% stake (around 6.4 million shares) in Weight Watchers and part of her deal is that she became their spokeswoman. Now she’s all over the place singing its praises, as she makes more and more dough (bread. No, money! I’m confused. And, hungry!).
Oprahs said in a tweet that she lost 26 lbs so far on the program, and she eats BREAD. EVERY. DAY (that’s real bread, I think. Not money. Unless it’s bread shaped like money? Again, hungry. And, confused).
Market Watch says that after her tweet about losing weight and bread went up at 12:09pm EST, Weight Watchers’ stock jumped up to 20 percent over the course of one hour. The stock was at $11.35 a share before her tweet and it ended at $13.29 a share. Which means…Oprah made $12.5 million in one hour. That’s power in social media, right O?
If that’s how much she can make tweeting about bread, just imagine how much she’d make tweeting about doughnuts. Mmmmm……Check out the tweet BELOW:
