Twitter to soon launch Super Follows as new research leaks insights

Leading microblogging platform, Twitter, which had teased its Super Follows feature earlier this year, is reportedly inching closer to the launch, according to first-look images shared by Jane Manchun Wong, an app researcher.

Apparently, the upcoming feature would allow few users to charge followers while giving them access to extra content.

Wong’s typically accurate research has revealed that the Super Follows program would be limited to Twitter users above 18 years of age, that have beyond 10,000 followers, and at least 25 tweets in the past 30 days.

The social networking firm has also indicated that one of Super Follows’ main features would be bonus content, including exclusive tweets for Super Followers.

Sources have also disclosed that Wong has discovered a listing of content categories that the Super Follows users would have a choice from to describe their content, like sports or podcasting. It is also revealed that OnlyFans and adult content are mentioned as content platforms, together with Facebook, Patreon, Twitch, Substack, and YouTube.

Twitter is yet to comment on Wong’s latest research. However, the company had previously addressed the nearing Patreon-like Super Follows feature as a sort of subscription, quoting an instance in which a Super Follows user charged $4.99 every month for users in order to get access to perks.

Previously, in May, Twitter commenced the testing of Tip Jar, which allows users to make their one-time payments to creators directly on the online platform with a click on the dollar bill icon on their Twitter profile.

The company’s product team also introduced several new features, inclusive of its Twitter Blue subscription service that is apparently being tested in Canada and Australia. The team has also recently reopened its verification program while updating warnings for potentially offensive tweets and has acquired Scroll, the well-known $5-per-month subscription service which removes ads from participating websites.
