OPRAH WINFREY became $12 million richer with just one Twitter post on Tuesday after sharing an update about her Weight Watchers journey.
The media mogul is a shareholder in Weight Watchers and after she posted a short video message about being able to lose 26 pounds, while still eating bread, shares in the weight loss brand – of which she owns $6 million, making her the largest individual stakeholder – increased by 18 per cent, or around $2.10 per share, within an hour, according to Market Watch.
She uploaded a short video about how she has been able to continue eating bread every day and still shed some pounds while sticking to the Weight Watchers programme, captioning the clip, “Eat bread. Lose weight. Whaaatttt (sic)? #ComeJoinMe”.
Towards the end of the video she said, 'If not now, when? Are you ready? Let's do this together.'
