Twitter is an iTunes Affiliate

If you like to tweet about that song or album you currently have on repeat, you might be thrilled to know that you can earn from that mere habit. As revealed by Evolver.fm, Twitter is a ceritified iTunes affiliate. Once you tweet with an iTunes link, a ‘view album’ option can now be seen near the retweet and favorite buttons.  Your followers can easily stream music previews straight from the page and click the iTunes button should they decide to purchase it. A 4-5% commission will be given to you when someone purchases the content in your tweeted link within 72 hours, but be sure to join Apple’s affiliate program to get an affiliate ID — otherwise, Twitter will bag those cents for you.
