Combine the instant
reach of Twitter , the content-provider incentives of YouTube, and the
flexibility of blogging and you have a powerful new social media platform:
While Twitter allows
you to broadcast short messages instantly, UpTweet offers the ability to
publish more expansive, colorful, and media-rich content. Users vote on
posts in real-time, and the most popular posts are always shown at the top of
the UpTweet homepage.
In addition to the fun
competition of promoting your story to the top, as a content provider you
actually earn a share of the advertising revenue generated. Accounts are paid
each time a user "retweets" a post on Twitter or "uptweets"
a post on UpTweet. Users may withdraw funds using the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.
UpTweet organizes the
stories into popular categories, such as news, music, humor, technology, and
politics, with viral topics in each category rising to the top of that
section. There is even a marketplace section where users can buy and sell
goods and services with one another.
"On Twitter, you
have the opportunity to be instantly viral. On forums and blogs, you have the
flexibility to provide concise or lengthy material. On YouTube, you can even
earn revenue on your content. With UpTweet, you have the best of all three, all
in one” says Brian Santos ( Follow @), founder & CEO of UpTweet.
Your Twitter followers
can now enjoy and retweet beautiful media-rich posts filled with interesting
content. The more popular you are the more money you'll earn!
UpTweet, tweet it up!

Just like any other movement, bitcoin needs people who can be symbolic leaders. Specific examples are people like Gavin Andresen, bitcoin’s chief scientist, who works as the lead developer on the Bitcoin protocol. Another one is Patrick Murck, the Bitcoin Foundation’s general counsel, who has been busy helping to forge a path forward for regulatory compliance.
These are people that are well qualified for their specific duties. Yet bitcoin needs influencers beyond that. It needs global leaders outside of cryptocurrency circles and people of some renown to speak out about it. So who has done this? Let’s take a look.
