Twitter’s Hidden Cash is No More

[media-credit name=”Twitter / Hidden Cash” align=”aligncenter” width=”300″]hidden cash[/media-credit]Twitter’s Hidden Cash (the real one, not the weird & lazy Palm Springs knockoff) has called it quits.  Tuesday a statement was linked from the Twitter account of Hidden cash from the men behind the account Jason Buzi and Yan Budman:

They say all good things come to an end, and for us, we realize that time is now for this phase of @hiddencash.

What started as a fun project to bring a smile to people’s faces, bring people together, and perhaps inspire them to pay it forward, took off beyond what we ever expected…
…We ended up spending more time, energy, and money on HC than we ever expected to. It became more than a full time job. But it’s also been extremely gratifying.

We realized at one point, that the only way to continue HC was with sponsors, and we were approached by several big names.
After much consideration, we decided that turning HC into an advertising business was not in line with our goals and mission.

So, we have made the difficult decision to end the HC money drops.

And now Twitter can return from being a free cash scavenger hunt to what it was before: a place for snark, sarcasm, and trolls.

Still no word on when or if Hidden Cash Coachella Valley will call it quits (or perhaps start?) hiding cash as well.
