About this Receipt

Generated on:

This receipt is generated as a metaphorical representation of the daily transactions you make with your personal data on any social media platform, intending to show that your use of the so-called "free" internet, has very real monetary transactional value.

Your total ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) is calculated based your account age, listed on the very top of the receipt. Using your ARPU, we can then determine the estimated value of your account by multiplying your ARPU against the ratio on your followers to the average Twitter followers (707 as of 2016). Your total account value thus represents the estimated total of how much money Twitter has profitted off of you, less the income tax (21%) in the US (assuming Twitter pays it's tax).
