Super Follows lets you offer a monthly subscription of an extra level of content and conversation with your biggest supporters on Twitter.
Remember when we announced in June that Super Follows was open for applications? Today we enter the next phase — turning on Super Follows for a small group. Thousands of people applied to try out Super Follows, and just a handful of US-based individuals make up the initial group who will try it for the first time.
People in this group will be able to customize the price point of their monthly subscription – $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 USD – and can take home up to 97% of revenue each month, after fees.* In return their supporters that choose to subscribe will have access to bonus content, subscriber-only conversations, and Super Follower badges that will show up next to their name whenever they reply to your Tweets.
During this initial phase, we hope to learn how people are using Super Follows and get their feedback on new features we add along the way.
As Super Follows rolls out more widely, comedians, creators, writers, pop culture commentators, and experts in fields such as esports, skincare and more will have the opportunity to earn revenue on a monthly basis. Creators selected for this initial group include skincare guru Tiara Willis and king of #NBATwitter, Josiah Johnson.
There will be more opportunities to try Super Follows as we roll out further and add people from the waitlist. Please feel free to apply for the waitlist by swiping open the sidebar on your Home timeline, tapping on Monetization, then selecting Super Follows.
Want to see Super Follows in action? Look for the Super Follow button on an account within the initial group to see a description of the content they offer and the cost of their subscription. At this stage, you can only purchase a Super Follows subscription on iOS, but Super Followers can view content on all platforms.
