Twitter to allow users to charge monthly fees for exclusive content in the new Super Follows feature | can collect Science & Tech News
With Twitter, users can bill their followers for additional content with a new feature called Super Follows.
It can unlock special tweets, newsletters, videos or offers and discounts that are not available to other users.
The move follows the success of sites like Patreon and Only Fans, which allow users to charge for different levels of content, and which have proven lucrative for some social media personalities.
Users would pay a monthly fee under the Super Follows system, however Twitter I didn’t say how much editing it would take.
The feature has not yet started – more details are expected in the coming months.
“By exploring audience funding opportunities like Super Follows, developers and publishers can get direct support from their audiences and incentivize them to continue creating content that their audience loves,” said Twitter.
Investors have longed for the company to adopt a subscription-based model to drive sales.
Another new feature is Communities, which, similar to Facebook groups, lets people join a group based on a specific interest or location and view relevant tweets.
“We’re working to create a product experience that makes it easier for people to have, discover, and participate in conversations that target the relevant communities or regions they’ve invested in,” the company said.
A start date for communities will also be announced.
Twitter revealed the new features in an investor presentation on Thursday in which it also said its 2023 revenue target was $ 7.5 billion, more than double its 2020 revenue of $ 3.7 billion.
