It seems that not everyone will be able to make a bank for the time they spend on Twitter. If you want to get people to pay you for your “exclusive” content on Twitter and become your super followers, you may need to meet a set of criteria and fill out an application.
Application researcher Jane Manchun Wong said on Sunday that Twitter seems to be moving forward in developing the Super Follows feature it announced back in February. From what we know so far, Super Follows is basically a paid subscription service for some types of additional content– as additional tweets, support badges, subscriber-only newsletters, or access to community groups – in separate Twitter feeds.
According to Wong, who shared screenshots of the alleged new details in Super Follows, Twitter will allow users over the age of 18 who have at least 10,000 followers and have posted at least 25 tweets in the past 30 days to use the feature.
In one of the message screens for the feature Wong found, Twitter sold Super Follows as a way for users to do what they love and make money from it. Another screen, titled “Revenue Estimates,” suggests that users can earn $ 6,250 a month with Super Follows if they can convert 2% of their followers to $ 4.99 a month.
“Offer your favorite followers a little extra and make money every month,” Twitter said. “They will have access to a more personal experience with bonus content and you will receive payment for what you create. This is a win-win situation. “
In terms of price, it should be noted that Twitter has not yet confirmed a price for Super Follow subscriptions, although it has hovered around the $ 4.99 price. The company is expected to bear some of the revenue generated by this feature. Whether he will eventually do so and how much this reduction will be is currently unknown.
Interestingly, it is clearly not enough to meet the above criteria. Wong also found that Twitter was trying to get users to fill out an application. The app requires users to identify their content category, other creation platforms, and demographic information. Twitter has included “adult content” and “OnlyFans” as categories of content, which is remarkable, given that the social media platform did not commit to allowing Super Follows for sexual content a few months ago.
The app also requires users to detail how they plan to use Super Follows. Wong’s research notes that Twitter aims to review the information and connect with candidates within 10 days.
Twitter told Gizmodo that it had not commented on Wong’s research on Sunday.
Although Wong’s research provides an interesting picture of the development of Super Follows, it is important to note that we do not know for sure what the feature will look like yet or when it will start. Wong has good experience in finding features, but in the end this is the call of Twitter. Maybe we’ll find out sooner rather than later.
