Twitter announced that it is introducing ‘Super Follows’ and tipping features. The feature allows users to monetize their content, giving super fans access to exclusive Twitter content. This feature is a great validation to the passion and creator economy.
Users can charge for:
- Exclusive Tweets
- Supporter badge
- Community access
The Super Follow subscription is for $4.99 on a monthly basis.
Twitter is on a shipping spree and is going all-in by launching Spaces, Newsletters (by Revue), and Voice DM’s.
However, Twitter’s recent launches are directly competing with products such as Clubhouse, Substack, and Patreon. But the single biggest moat is that Twitter has a huge distribution with around 330M DAU.
Although, less than 6% said they would pay for exclusive tweets in this initial poll by Austin, co-founder of Morning Brew.
