Sometimes in June, Twitter super follows feature was announced and now the super follows has been unveiled and will be gradually rolling out to some selected individuals. The new feature allows creators to charge their followers for access to special content on a monthly subscription.
Super Followers are identified to creators by a badge that appears under their name when they reply to tweets. Twitter plans to roll out the feature on iOS in more countries in the coming weeks and says it will be available on Android and the web soon.
The Super Followers on ios will be able to get a subscribers-only newsletter, deals, and discounts on your products, community access, a special supporter badge, etc.
The subscription charges range from $2.99, $4.99 to $9.99, and accounts eligible for the Super Follows feature can now mark some tweets for subscribers only.
Subscribers will have a special Super Follower badge to separate them from the “free” followers as you can see in the image below.
