According to Twitter, “Today we’re excited to introduce Super Follows, a new way for people to earn monthly revenue by sharing subscriber-only content with their followers on Twitter. With Super Follows, people can create an extra level of conversation on Twitter (sharing bonus Tweets and more!) to interact authentically with their most engaged followers – all while earning money.”
One of the problems was that short of finding sponsors yourself, there was no official way that Twitter users could monetize themselves through the platform. Now with Super Follows, users will be able to do just that. There will be a limit on how much users can charge, where there are options for $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99.
Users can still post publicly, but they will also have the option of locking certain types of content behind Super Follows. This means that as a content creator, you could use your account to announce the launch of a new video that everyone else can see, but only those subscribed via Super Follows will actually be able to see it.
That being said, there is a limit on who can use the feature. According to Twitter, some of the requirements include being over the age of 18, a complete profile with a verified email address, 2FA, and at least 10,000 active followers. You can find the complete list of requirements on Twitter’s policy page.
