Twitter finally started rolling out the Super Follow feature it previewed earlier this year. The new feature allows creators and influencers on Twitter to provide subscriber-only content. Creators will be able to mark tweets and media as Super Followers only, and those tweets will only show up on the feed of the users who’ve Super Follow-ed the creator on Twitter.
The feature is only available in the United States and Canada right now, that too, only to some iOS users. Twitter wants to see how users respond to the feature, and then it will roll out the paid feature to users across the world. Eligible creators can apple for Super Follow to be enabled on their account, and then their followers will see a “Super Follow” option on their profile.
Creators can charge up to $9.99 per month. Currently, there are three tiers available — $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 a month. Twitter says creators can earn up to 97% subscription revenue after third-party fees. If the lifetime revenue crosses $50,000, Twitter will start charging a 20% commission fee.
