Former heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe is very active on Twitter and he decided to monetize his over 451,000 followers by offering to tweet anything his followers want, provided they pay him $20.

A surprising number of people have taken the former champ up on his offer and the non-advertising tweets are pretty entertaining.

Bowe explained that he was performing a public service while also making himself some cash on the side.

Bowe has tweeted over 200 times since beginning his offer, and while some seem to actually be from Bowe, the vast majority seem to be paid tweets, so the champ has been having a pretty good 24 hours.
