Twitter has launched "Super Follows" on iOS. The feature lets users charge for subscriber-only content, and mimics the subscriber model used by Patreon, Substack, and other platforms.
The feature is currently only available test group of people in the US.
Super Follows users can charge $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 a month, with payments processed through Stripe. Twitter says users can earn up to 97 percent of subscription revenue after third-party fees, until they reach a lifetime earnings limit of $50,000 across all Twitter monetization products. After hitting that limit, Twitter says users can earn up to 80 percent of revenue after third-party fees.
Twitter has been exploring various monetization strategies for creators recently, including a tip jar feature, ticketed Spaces, a shopping section, and a newsletter subscription button. Twitter says it plans to add newsletters, anonymous subscriptions, exclusive Spaces, and Patreon-like subscription tiers to Super Follows.From The Verge
