KK: I actually have written freelance tales for $60. So, yeah.
LG: Well, I simply should say, Kate, I believe your tweet was glorious. Not only a effective tweet, and completely definitely worth the 0.3 ether you bought from it. And additionally we should always observe that WIRED has since banned us from promoting our tweets for comprehensible, moral causes.
GE: I’ll say this and I hope our bosses are listening. I believe that is baloney. I do not see any motive why we should not be capable to monetize our tweets. I imply, I play saxophone.
