Twitter CEO Dick Costolo looks worried. Has he sent Kai his check yet?
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo looks worried. Has he sent Kai his check yet? - 

This final note today, in which by our calculations, Twitter owes Kai Ryssdal some money. 

$5,940 to be exact. 

Alright, so Kai didn't crunch the numbers himself. But Time magazine built an interactive tool that calculates a monetary figure for your Twitter labor by factoring in the number of followers someone has, how many times a day that person tweets, and compounds it by some corporate valuation numbers Twitter put in its IPO prospectus. 

So, then, we did some calculations of our own: Kai could buy 120 pairs of red pants (of the J. Crew $49.50 variety) with that money -- or enough new pairs of pants for every Friday until 2016.
