On Wednesday Twitter has gone ahead and done something super cool and new. This is what a lot and I would say most of the people in the Twitter and tech community are talking about now. The fact that you might not have heard it is low but here is all you need to know about this new feature of Twitter that allows people to make money from their tweets.
Twitter launched its Super Follows feature on Wednesday. Now what is actually the Super Follows feature you may ask, well it is actually a feature that allows selected users to charge others for getting access to the content that they are posting on the site. So in order to read the tweets of the selected people, there needs to be some kind of payment made. This is done in order to help the content creators and influential people raise some money out of twitting.
The new feature will allow the people who are the most popular on Twitter to generate a kind of revenue from their followers. However, there is a catch to this entire thing. There has been a limit to the access of the Super Followers. Not everyone can get access to this. There have to be certain limits that you can see when you are going to get accepted into the Super Followers.
There are certain criteria that you will need to fulfill in order to become a Super Follower:
- People need to have at least 10,000 followers. If you have not reached that number of followers yet then you have to keep tweeting for free.
- Based in the United States.
- You should be at least 18 years old.
- You should have tweeted at least 25 times. This should be done within the last 30 days. When you are not doing regular content you can not avail the feature.
So you can apply to the super followers if you are meeting all the criteria. Then you just have to wait and see what happens later on. This is how this feature is going to work on. So if you are planning to apply, give it a go.
