How Much Does Terrell Owens Get Paid to Tweet?

The debt-laden football star has a pretty good side hustle.

A picture is worth a thousand words...and a tweet from Terrell Owens is worth about five grand. The troubled football star, who recently appealed to a judge for his inability to pay steep child support payments, has been revealed to have a neat little side business firing off tweets in exchange for cash.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, T.O. says he makes between $2,800 and $6,400 per tweet. In one instance, he pulled in $2,800 to tweet for Cutters, a football glove company. He raked in $4,800 for tweeting on behalf of Old Navy. And he got $6,400 for tweeting about Fantapper, a sports social networking site.

Not bad for a handful of words, but not nearly enough to make a dent in Owens's monthly expenses and child support payments, which are over $100,000 combined.
