10 grand a month to Twitter about wine?

There is a winery in Sonoma that is going to pay someone $10,000 a month to be their social networker - doing their Tweeting and blogging, etc.


Ok, it's a bit of a publicity gimmick - they'll pay out $60,000 (it's a six-month deal) - but meanwhile they get a few million dollars in free press, like that LA Times article.

It's along the lines of that island in Australia that just hired someone to do the same thing, except that person also gets to live free in a luxurious beach-side villa at the same time as getting the money.

Sigh: why do things like this never happen to me?

Who did I offend in a previous life? (I know it must be a previous life because I'm such a good person in this life.)
