New Delhi: Twitter is expected to launch the Super Follows feature soon, which will allow some users with 10,000 or more subscribers to charge for providing additional exclusive content such as additional tweets, joining a community group, or receiving a newsletter.
Twitter announced earlier this year that it is working on a Patreon-like service, as the microblogging platform aims to generate new revenue streams.
Twitter showed a screen mockup at a virtual event with investors, where a user charges $ 4.99 per month for additional exclusive content.
App researcher Jane Manchun Wong first tweeted screenshots of the new Super Follows feature on Sunday.
“Twitter is working on the Super Follows app. Requirements: Have at least 10,000 subscribers, have posted at least 25 Tweets in the last 30 days and be at least 18 years old, ”Wong said in the tweet.
Wong also discovered a list of content categories that Super Follows users would choose from to describe their content.
“Notably, ‘Adult Content’ and ‘OnlyFans’ are mentioned in the category and platform sections,” said the application researcher.
In another monetization move, Twitter last week launched its very first subscription offer called Twitter Blue in Australia and Canada, which will give users a 30-second Cancel Tweet option to clear any typos, which has been the greatest demand of its users. for years.
Users can set a customizable timer of up to 30 seconds to click “Cancel” before the Tweet, reply, or thread they’ve sent messages to their log, and correct any errors by previewing what your Tweet will look like before the world can see it.
“As a Twitter Blue subscriber, you will get these features and benefits for the monthly price of $ 3.49 Canadian or $ 4.49 Australian,” the company said in a statement.
The subscription service will be gradually rolled out to other countries including India in the near future.
Twitter acquired Scroll in May, the $ 5-per-month subscription service that removes ads from participating websites.
Twitter aims to more than double its total annual revenue to more than $ 7.5 billion by 2023 with at least 315 million mDAU (monetizable daily active users), according to its CEO Jack Dorsey.
