I never thought I'd see the day when I would publish the word "tweet" (no less in a headline). Nor did I think I'd see the day when superstar hip-hop artist/actor 50 Cent would become a financial advisor.

That's right, over the weekend 50 Cent (nee Curtis James Jackson III) hit his Twitter account hard, vowing to get rich off of the penny stock HNHI, a headphone distributor, or die trying. (What he actually wrote, in one of his advisory tweets, was: "Ok ok ok my friends just told me to stop tweeting about HNHI so we can get all the money. Hahaha check it out its [sic] the real deal.")

Well, Fiddy lives, and he a whole lot richer (he made $50 mill) -- and you are too (and are partying like it's your birfday) if you took his advice. The stock more than doubled yesterday after Fiddy's weekend tweets.
