Drew Carey Bets $1 Million On “Drew” Twitter Name

Oct 7th, 2009 | By | Category: Microblogging

drew-carey-twitterCBS News reports that Drew Carey, the host of CBS’s The Price Is Right, is willing to donate up $1 million to Lance Armstrong’s LiveStrong Foundation if he gets 1 million followers by midnight on December 31, 2009.

On Saturday, Carey tweeted that he would bid and donate $25,000 to Drew Olanoff, who currently owns the twitter name @drew and has been raising money for LiveStrong since he was diagnosed with Cancer in May.

Along with raising money, Olanoff has also become popular in the Twitterverse for creating the viral hashtag #blamedrewscancer, where people can tweet and blame his cancer for anything.

Do you think there’s any way that a Twitter account is worth $1 million?

Probably not – but the positive press for Carey is priceless, and the money will go to a good cause.
