Twitter Gears Up for the Launch of ‘Super Follows’

Twitter Leak Suggests Imminent Launch of Paid ‘Super Follows’ Feature

Earlier this year, Twitter announced ‘Super Follows,’ enabling creators to charge followers for exclusive content access.

The available “perks” could include bonus Tweets, community access, subscriber-only newsletters or personalised deals. At the time, Twitter posted a mock-up showing a creator charging £4.99 a month for this exclusive pack of goodies.

Details recently leaked by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong hint that Twitter is nearly ready with its Patreon-style offering.

Wong tweeted screenshots of what the app is set to look like, as well as further detail about who is eligible for the Super Follows programme. These users must:

  1. Have at least 10,000 followers
  2. Have posted at least 25 Tweets in the past 30 days
  3. Be 18 years of age or older

In other words, the ideal candidate would be (legally) an adult, have a well-established audience and a highly active Twitter account.

Wong also discovered a list of content categories that Super Follows users would choose from to describe their content (such as “sports,” “podcasting” and “adult content”), and notes that and “OnlyFans” is listed as a “content platform” for sharing, along with Facebook, Substack, Patreon, Twitch, and YouTube.

Twitter refused to comment on the apparent leak, but has previously hinted at the benefits of the feature: creators, publishers and personalities can showcase their best work and get compensated directly by their fans, whilst the company will, presumably, take a percentage.

Twitter has been working on monetising the platform for quite some time; it sounds like ‘Super Follows’ could be the next step in their grand plan.
