How Twitter Users can Earn Money with ‘Super Follows’?
This new update simply works like platforms Patreon, Substack, OnlyFans, etc. Not familiar with any of this?
The concept behind such platforms is to make content creators and fans/patrons meet. Here, you can support your favourite content creators by providing them monthly financial support in exchange of exclusive content. Or you can monetize on your content the same way. Such content is protected by a paywall. Hence, this exclusive content can be accessed only by the subscribers who have paid for it. Generally, such platforms also take a certain cut from whatever is earned by the content creators.
The users of Patreon, Substack, and OnlyFans use these mediums for different types of content. However, the concept is more less the same.
So, Twitter is going to do something similar with its introduction of the ‘super follows.’
What is ‘super follows’?
The ‘super follows’ function on Twitter will allow the most productive users like celebrities, influencers, and so on, to charge money from their subscribers in exchange of exclusive content.
The ‘super follows’ will work like other subscription services—as explained by Twitter recently during a presentation to investors. In exchange of a monthly fee, the users will get access to the following things:
- Exclusive tweets
- Private groups
- Select videos
- Special offers
- Offers and discounts
- Paid newsletters
- Sponsor badge
Twitter users—both content creators and the followers— have been asking for this feature for long. Now with the ‘super follows’, Twitter content creators will be able to turn their popularity into tangible profits. It will also help followers to support their favourite content creators.
What will be the charges to be a ‘super follower’?
To access exclusive content of a Twitter account, the users will have to pay about $4.99 per month. However, Twitter is yet to specify the percentage that it will take from their revenue. In any case, this feature will not only help the followers and the influencers, but also Twitter itself in expanding their sources of revenue.
Unlike Facebook and Google, Twitter doesn’t get much revenue from its advertising earnings. Hence, this may be seen as a move for increasing revenue generation for the company.
Looking at the success of platforms like OnlyFans, Patreon, and SubStack, this move may turn out to be really beneficial for Twitter.
