Twitter has lately added ways for sought-after users to take gratuities with a “Tip Jar “attribute. The new feature allows these users to earn from online events organized in “Ticketed Spaces.”
Twitter on September 1 inaugurated a long-promised “Super Follows” feature that is designed ideally to enable developers to sell subscriptions for access to unique content.
The initiative came as Twitter strives relentlessly to become a favored online venue for clickable stars and to enhance its proceeds in ways that do not litter the platform up with ads or promotions.
Influencers such as makeup artists and sports experts will be capable of offering “behind the scenes” content, early entry, and other perks to their subscribers for a rate that ranges from $3-$10monthly. Twitter product manager Esther Crawford said in a blog post:
“With Super Follows, people can develop an additional level of conversation on Twitter to talk truthfully with their most involved followers – all while making money. Creating Super Follows content is for anyone who brings their unique view and persona to Twitter to steer the public discussion.”
Crawford pointed out that the list of such personalities includes writers, gamers, activists, journalists, musicians, astrology enthusiasts, beauty experts, comedians, and many others.
Twitter has established a new feature that enables star users to gain money off their feeds. The social media platform had been evaluating the Super Follows feature for some time now, and said that it was initially piloted with a small group of developers in North America.
The choice to follow participating creators will be activated worldwide to people using Twitter on Apple mobile devices in the coming weeks.
This feature will be ultimately brought to smartphones generated by Google-sponsored Android software as well as to the twitter.com websites reached through browsers later on, according to Crawford.
Twitter will take just 3% of the subscriptions as a transaction fee until a creator earns $50,000 at the platform. Once the amount is surpassed, Twitter’s share increases to 20%, according to the San Francisco-based company.
App store fees, which can be nearly 30 percent of transactions, are financed by creators trading these subscriptions. Twitter lately added ways for marketable users to take gratuities with a “Tip Jar” feature, or make money from web occasions hosted in “Ticketed Spaces.”
The company, which has more than 200 million active users, is searching for new ways to generate significant amounts of revenue without further advertising.
