Jimmy Donaldson, also known as MrBeast, is a popular American YouTuber known for his exciting videos with challenges and giveaways. He started making videos on YouTube when he was just 13 and became famous in 2017 with a video where he counted to 100,000. Now, he has over 234 million subscribers, making him the most-subscribed individual on YouTube.
Apart from being popular on YouTube, a 26-year-old millionaire is also gaining a lot of attention on Twitter. He has a huge following of 28 million people on X where this social media star, Mr. Beast, regularly grabs his followers’ attention with his tweets.
But recently, he shared something even more surprising than his usual tweets.
In a post on his X account, Mr. Beast revealed that he made an impressive $250,000 from just one video on Elon Musk X. Let’s clear that Mr Beast Made this big amount leveraging Twitter’s New Monetization program which allows users to earn money from the ads shown on their posts or videos.
However, the amount isn’t usually big, like according to one of Twitter’s users who said “Twitter just paid me $120.65 for 21,400,000 impressions in the past 104 days. For what it’s worth, YouTube paid me $241.31 in that exact same amount of time for 928,593 views and 6,159,005 impressions,”
“WHOA. Twitter just paid me $12,632 for the last month for revenue share,” marvelled another.
But alone MrBeast is the one who made a whopping $250,000 – that’s too with just a single video – and he confirmed this by himself on his X account.
MY FIRST X VIDEO MADE OVER $250,000! 😲— MrBeast (@MrBeast) January 22, 2024
But it’s a bit of a facade. Advertisers saw the attention it was getting and bought ads on my video (I think) and thus my revenue per view is prob higher than what you’d experience pic.twitter.com/nViVpZbWBb
So, How MrBeast Made $250,000 with just a single video on X (Formerly Twitter)?
So, how did MrBeast make $250,000 with just one video on X (formerly Twitter)? It’s because MrBeast is a very popular person on YouTube, and a lot of people watch his videos. He already has many fans. He also knows many advertisers, especially those who pay him big amount.
Primarily because, MrBeast often makes videos about money and games, which makes people curious. What’s interesting is that he gives a big part of the money he earns to his viewers.
This makes his posts very popular because people don’t know who will win the money until it’s announced. Leveraging his special techniques and reputation, he shared a post on Twitter with a video attached to it with a unique message.
