After announcing the Super Follows feature back in June, prices for Super Follows subscriptions have come to light coming in at $2.99, $4.99 and $9.99 a month.
App researcher Jane Manchun Wong tweeted what seems like a nearly wrapped up Super Follows user page along with the prices and a hint that the feature might just roll out soon. As of right now, there’s no official date from Twitter on the feature’s rollout and availability.
The Super Follows feature was announced alongside the ticketed spaces feature which allows eligible users to host spaces but charge money for members to join instead with ticket prices ranging between $1 to $999,
Ramping creators up
Super Follows allow users to get closer to their favourite Twitter accounts and support them financially. In return, the users get bonus and exclusive content, which no one but a Super Follower will be able to see. Creators on Twitter can also hand out badges to their Super Followers to highlight their subscriptions.
The feature is currently only available in the US and to selected applicants who need to be 18 or older, have at least 10,000 followers and should have tweeted at least 25 times in the last 30 days.
Creators can see as much as 97% of their sales revenue generated from these Super Follows as Twitter only takes a 3% cut once Apple or Google are done charging their respective app store fees on any transactions.
However, once a creator has collected more than $50,000 in lifetime revenues from Twitter creator monetisation products, including ticketed spaces and super follows, their share will reduce to 80% of the total revenue after Twitter takes its cut. There’s also a minimum payment threshold — $50. Failing to meet the threshold will roll over the earnings to the next month.
