Now that wish may finally come true.

BRUSSELS, Belgium (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you tweet hard enough, your ultimate wish may come true.

The Payittome project, created by Franz Donovan, gives advertisers worldwide a chance to promote their brand or website by fulfilling people’s wildest wishes in cyber space.

Instead of spending money on impersonal ad space, companies make wishes come true for Donovan’s followers on Twitter.

Each time someone contacts him to advertise, he tweets the amount they’re willing to spend and asks that his followers respond with their wish.

He then chooses someone at random and makes their personal dream happen.

Donovan says he’ll make good on any promise and adds, “I think this concept has the potential to make a lot of people happy. People don’t want to miss seeing their wish granted for free.”

So far, followers have been asking for gadgets, trips, homes, and cars, but he’s willing to cough up cash for even weirder stuff.
