Twitter is believed to be nearing the launch of its long-awaited "Super Follows" feature, which would allow users to pay for extra content provided by popular Twitter personalities on the microblogging platform.
Twitter is looking for new ways to monetize its user base, and it recently announced the Twitter Blue subscription service. The company is still searching for new ways to monetize its iOS and other apps, and one of them may be available very soon.
Twitter is set to launch its Super Follows feature, according to pictures posted to Twitter by researcher Jane Manchun Wong and first reported by The Verge. The feature, which was first revealed as coming in February during a meeting with analysts, will give additional aspects for customers who utilise the service.
Special labels for paid-for Super Followers, increased access to the Twitter account's user, and possibly exclusive tweets and other content seen only by subscribers are all possible perks.
Wong's most recent findings include account prerequisites for Super Follows to be enabled. This includes being at least 18 years old, having posted at least 25 tweets in the last 30 days prior to applying, and having at least 10,000 followers.
The users behind the account can receive revenue cut from the subscription to users in exchange for activating Supper Follows on an account and offering more content. In terms of how much the Super Follow might cost, one picture depicts a customer earning $6,250 a month with a $4.99 subscription.
The content would also have to fall into one of several categories, not just family-friendly. Within the photos, "Adult content" is mentioned as a content category, and "OnlyFans" is mentioned as a supported content platform. Patreon, Substack, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook are among the other content platforms listed.
While the screenshots hint Twitter is coming close to launching Super Follows, there's no news on when they'll go live.
