TMZ celebrity news mentioned our Chief Strategist, Rob Bertholf, after a twitter storm broke out around a Tweet by @RobDyrdek.
In the article “I’ll Pay Big $$$ to NOT be Rob Dyrdek!” TMZ suggests:
Dyrdrek better think bigger — much bigger — because Bertholf tells us he ain’t selling for less than 6 FIGURES!!!
The current @rob says he turned down a $25,000 offer two years ago for the handle — and you gotta love his explanation for the inflated price: “It wouldn’t be worth my time to rebuild all of my profiles that are linked to my twitter handle.”
Rob Dyrdek — I’ll Pay Big $$$ … to NOT be Rob Dyrdek! tmz.me/MvKdTy

While that sounds inticing, the truth of the matter is it is against Twitter’s terms of service to sell a username. But Rob says that if he were to get an offer for 6 figures he would gladly hand the Twitter handle over in exchange for a donation to a charity of his choice.
The TMZ article ends with an obligatory snarky remark:
Bertholf has 1,497 followers. Totally worth keeping.
Rob laughs it off saying “I know Harvey Levin loves me, he just has a funny way of showing it”.
