Default well...

If you have a business, you can 'make money' through twitter by meeting new clients. Focusing your tweets to return within local trending topics with the #.

If you're a superblogger + supertweeter you can make money by running traffic at your adwords enabled blogger...

If you have a ton of followers on twitter you can get paid to tweet, there are a couple companies who organize this type of thing.

I don't think they are good places to make money without having products or services to market. They are however good tools to meet clients. Someone asked me to build them a website yesterday on my wall at facebook so...

There are a few people who make money off ideas... but most of them are programmers.

I agree with netometry. Social media is a waste of time, unless you can use it to market your product or service. Don't do social media for social media's purpose. You need to focus on marketing, rather than pure social networking...

There are tons of ways to make money with facebook and twitter here are just a few:
Post a video or blog post with a link to buy something, if it's good enough you will make sales
Develop relationships with people and then you can get them on your email list and then sell to them
Drive traffic to your blog or affiliate offers or your own information products
Advertise paid classes or events and get your friends and followers to attend
On your fan pages you can set up an online store and sell products right there on facebook

Certainly long term you may be able to make money using either of these avenues. Unless you track your campaigns it would be hard to quantify your return. We typically see twitter/facebook drive about 50-75 visitors per week.

While we do drive traffic. It does not translate to immediate dollars. Since it doesn't require a ton of time to maintain. We're happy to have our company in front of those people who otherwise would not have know about us.

Facebook and twitter basically are used to drive traffic to your site from which you can then make money. Good blogger can be paid to tweet, you can display your image and video ads in facebook that will eventually generate traffic to your site.
