1. What is Super Follows?
For over a decade, Twitter has been gradually becoming one of the most influential social networks. It’s perfect for all kinds of bite-sized content. However, popular Twitter users didn’t have a lot of ways to monetize their work and had to invest a lot of time and effort into creating their content for free. Sure, some Twitter celebrities went for Patreon and similar services to get rewarded for their work, but all of that happened outside of Twitter. Now Twitter is attempting to change that by introducing a Super Follows feature.
2. How does it work?
The Super Follows feature is yet to be fully unveiled, but we already know some of the details. The biggest fans of Twitter celebrities will be able to join a special group of followers by paying a monthly subscription fee. The benefits for those paid followers will range from exclusive performances to tweets that are only visible to the Super Follows group.
It’s also possible that paid users will get a badge next to their names or in their profiles to signal their commitment to a certain Twitter personality. And since the Super Follows feature allows content creators to make money and closely engage with their fans, it’s a win-win situation for everybody. We are genuinely excited about this feature to become fully available in the nearest future.
3. How much does it cost?
At the moment, there is no clear information on how much the Super Follows feature is going to cost the users. It’s also not clear whether popular Twitter personalities will be able to choose their own subscription price or the price will be universal for all users. However, there are reports that subscribing to a single Twitter user can cost around $4.99 per month, which may not seem a lot, but if you have several Twitter users you’d like to support, your monthly subscription fee can round to several times more.
