When you see a #ad pop up on your favorite celebrity feed, have you ever wondered just how much they get paid to share that product with their followers? As it turns out, not all celebrity tweets are treated equally. While one megastar once earned $12 million for a single tweet about bread (can you guess which one it was?), some stars make as little as a couple hundred bucks — less than some stars who are famous for having a presence on social media alone.

And not all celebrities are actually being paid for their product recommendations. To find out who is who and which is which, read on to find out what some big stars are getting paid for their quick #ad tweets.
