I signed up for Magpie back before Christmas. I saw it come out and figured what the hell. I use Twitter a lot and have a nice bunch of followers, so why not. I didn't know if it would work at the time, and since you have to build up $60 before you can cash out, it took at while to find out.

Well, I finally did find out. I checked in on it the other day and to my surprise and delight I had $97.30 in my account! I literally had a heart attach, hit myself with the defibrillator, fainted, gave myself smelling salts, and finally pissed all over myself. Once I was cleaned up, I transferred the money to my paypal account and began rubbing my hands together thinking of all the cool shit I can buy.

My first purchase was a guitar stand from the Rock Band store. I had won a $20 credit from, so it only cost me a like $17. Then I went yesterday and got a 1600 point card for Xbox Live and bought 'Splosion Man and The Maw. I still have $50 left, which is going to buy me Halo 3: ODST in September.

I've actually made out pretty well when it comes to Twitter. In addition to making that money from Magpie, I've won stuff from,, and I think I've even won something from Not to mention my friends at
