Twitter recently announced that accounts with over 10,000 followers are qualified to earn money via Super Follows. This new feature allows account wielders to tweet exclusive content to select users. In short, these Super Followers are subscribing to see tweets.
However, Twitter has certain restrictions in place for which accounts qualify for Super Follows. To participate in their test group, users must:
- Be 18 years or older.
- Have at least 10K followers.
- Have tweeted at least 25 times in the past 30 days.
Currently, this testing phase in only available to those living in the U.S. who use iOS. If you meet these qualifications, you should see a Monetization tab under the main menu.
So, how do Twitter Super Follows work?
Once you submit your application, Twitter will review your qualifications. If approved, you will be expected to:
- Share unscripted thoughts.
- Ask for ideas and opinions with extra tweets.
- Give personal replies only your Super Followers can see.
Tweeting unscripted thoughts means you will have to write your own original content and not use copy from sponsored posts. You set the price for subscription between $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 per month and if your followers subscribe, you can earn up to 97% of revenue. For example, if you set the price to $4.99, then $1.50 goes to Apple’s in-app purchase fee (currently set at 30% the subscription cost), and $0.10 goes to Twitter’s minimum share. In total, you would earn $3.39 per Super Follow. However, after $50,000 lifetime earnings, users qualify for 80% of revenue, per Twitter’s guidelines.
