People with over 10,000 followers on Twitter can now make money by tweets – here’s how
Twitter launched Super Follows on Wednesday, a feature that allows select users to charge others for accessing content for subscribers only.
This new feature will eventually allow the company’s most reputable users to generate revenue from their followers, but access to Super Follows is limited.
Here’s how you can qualify and request access to your Super Follows account settings.
How to qualify for Super Follows
Not everyone will be able to set up super-follows for accounts. It is only open to users who:
- With followership, at least 10,000. If you haven’t reached the milestone yet, you should continue to tweet for free.
- Tweeted at least 25 times in the last 30 days. If you do not have a regular session, avoid it.
- Based in U.S.
- At least 18 years
How to log in
If you meet the qualification, it is easy to apply.
Open the Twitter app and swipe right on the screen to get to the menu. At the bottom of this menu, you will see “Monetization”.
Click on it and then click on “Super Follows”.
This will take you to a screen that explains how Super Follows works and how much you can earn by monetizing your Twitter account.
For example, on Twitter, I could make almost $ 900 a month if, according to Twitter, I priced my super follows to $ 4.99 a month, and 2% of my nearly 13,000 followers were subscribed. (This is only hypothetical.)
Click “Check Eligibility” at the bottom of the screen to go to a screen that shows you are eligible. If so, you can use the “Apply” button.
Twitter will ask you to verify that you are 18 years of age or older, and will ask you to complete a profile and enable 2-factor verification for your account. Twitter will also ask you what category of content you would like to make, such as art, comedy or games. It will also ask you what other platforms you have, including Twitch, Facebook and OnlyFans.
Finally, the application will ask you to describe how you plan to use Super Follows. Applicants may also complete their “About You” description and indicate their gender and ethnic origin, although this is not required. When done, users will click on “Submit Application”.
It is not clear how long users will have to wait to receive after submitting their request, but when notified by Twitter, it stated that users requesting Super Follows would join the waiting list. Users whose applications are accepted can set the subscription price to $ 2.99, $ 4.99 or $ 9.99.
If you already have a Super Follows account, you can specify each tweet for followers only or for paid followers:
Your followers will be able to log in by clicking on the purple person icon and star icon next to the fill button on your profile.
Phew! Now you can make some money from your tweeting habits on Twitter.
