Not bad work for a simple couple of click, no?
If nothing else, this proves that YouTubers really do make a lot of money. Imagine being able to give away amounts like that just for fun.
Anyway, Mongeau tweeted out that she'd be sending a 'random amount' of cash to a lucky few followers at around 11pm Los Angeles time on Sunday night.
Then, her thousands of followers started to retweet her and plead the case that they should be the ones to receive the windfall.
rt this and follow me and i'll cash app u a random amount of money rn
- Tana Mongeau (@tanamongeau) January 6, 2020
So, follow and retweet they did.
Tana would periodically respond to some of the requests, notably to one who said she needed cash to feed her cats, and one who said they were living alone at the tender age of 18.
These people seem to have been the ones who Tana was moved enough to offer the cash to. It's nice that she's in a position to help when some of them are - or at least seem to be - in genuine need of a helping hand.
One person wrote: "I don't have health insurance and need to pay for a doctors appointment."
Tana responded: "Paid 4 it."
Whilst we can't be immediately clear how much she sent to each person, we do know that a few hours later she'd reached her $7,500 limit for the week.
At that point, she packed it in and announced: "OK I popped off, c u soon."
Like all YouTubers - or at least the successful ones, anyway - Mongeau has cultivated a very close relationship with her fans.
After all, they are the ones that ensure that she has money at all, aren't they?
Also, she might have decided to give something back to her five-million-strong followers because they've also been there for her during her time of need.
Mongeau recently separated from her husband, fellow YouTuber Jake Paul. Not so long ago the pair both shared statements on their respective Instagram accounts stating that they'd separated to focus individually on their 'crazy lives'.
It sounds like it was on a downhill slope from the start. Mongeau released a video afterwards called 'the truth about everything', in which she referred to her wedding night as the start of the end and said it was 'just hell'.
