Twitter’s latest feature, Super Follows, rolled out today, the social media company has announced.
Revealed earlier this year, Super Follows grant VIP access to certain users’ exclusive, subscriber-only tweets, separate from standard, public tweets. Super Follows come at a monthly subscription cost of either $2.99, $4.99 or $9.99, set by the designated Twitter user.
Applications for Twitter users to gain access to Super Followers and Ticketed Spaces, which are paid audio chat rooms, launched in June. Users will be given 97% of the revenue generated from the monetized features after in-app purchase fees. However, once an individual user makes $50,000 in lifetime earnings from Twitter, the company will take 20%. To become eligible for the Super Follows waitlist, a user needs to have at least 10,000 followers, be 18 years old and have tweeted 25 times in the last 30 days.
The new feature is envisioned to further drive conversation and allow users to make money while providing content to their biggest followers. People who users can Super Follow will include activists, journalists, musicians, content curators, writers, gamers, astrology enthusiasts, skincare and beauty experts, comedians, fantasy sports experts and more.
iOS users in the U.S. and Canada can Super Follow select accounts starting today, and the feature will roll out globally in the next few weeks. Android and Twitter.com access will arrive at a later date.
