It looks like not everyone will be able to make money for their time on Twitter. If you are looking to get people to pay you for your “exclusive” Twitter content and become your super followers, you may need to meet a certain set of criteria and complete an application.
Application researcher Jane Manchun Wong said sunday that Twitter appeared to be moving forward with the development of the Super Follows feature, which it announced back in february. From what we know so far, Super Follows is basically a paid subscription service for certain types of additional content– such as additional tweets, supporter badges, subscriber-only newsletters or access to community groups – on individual Twitter feeds.
According to Wong, who shared screenshots of the alleged new details on Super Follows, Twitter will only 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 feature message screens Wong found, Twitter is selling Super Follows as a way for users to do what they love and make money doing it. Another screen titled “Revenue Estimator” suggests that users could earn $ 6,250 per month with Super Follows if they manage to convert 2% of their subscribers at the price of $ 4.99 per month.
“Give your favorite followers that little extra something and make money every month,” Twitter said. “They will have access to a more personal experience with bonus content, and you will get paid for what you create. It’s a win-win situation.
In terms of pricing, it’s worth noting that Twitter has yet to confirm pricing for Super Follow subscriptions, although it has hovered around the $ 4.99 price tag. The company is expected to take part of the revenue generated by this feature. It is not yet known whether Twitter will eventually do so and how much that reduction would be.
Interestingly, this is apparently not enough to meet the above criteria. Wong also discovered that Twitter would seek to force users to complete a request. The app asks users to identify their content category, other authoring platforms, and demographic information. Twitter has included “adult content” and “OnlyFans” as content categories, which is remarkable given that the social media platform had not committed to allowing Super Follows for sexual content a few years ago. month.
The app also asks users to detail how they plan to use Super Follows. Wong’s research indicates that Twitter aims to review the information and reach out to applicants within 10 days.
Twitter told Gizmodo that it made no comment on Wong’s research on Sunday.
While Wong’s research paints an interesting picture of the development of Super Follows, it’s important to note that we don’t yet know for sure what the feature will look like or when it will launch. Wong has a good track record of finding features, but ultimately, that’s Twitter’s appeal. Maybe we’ll find out sooner rather than later.
