Twitter has finally opened the application process for users to apply for two premium services – Ticketed Spaces and Super Follow. These two features introduce new ways of monetization on the platform, allowing users to engage and earn money from their audience.
With Ticketed Spaces, Twitter users can set an entry fee for their Spaces, ranging anywhere between $1 and $999. The host can also set limits to the size of the Space and send out push and in-app notifications to remind their attendees of the upcoming Space.
The Super Follow feature works like a monthly subscription service where people can “super follow” an account for extra content and interaction. Users will be able to customize what they offer to their followers and can set the price as $2.99, $4.99 or $9.99 per month.
With regards to the revenue share, Twitter will take 3% until a user earns $50,000 in lifetime earnings. After crossing $50,000, Twitter will increase their cut to 20% of future earnings.
Users in the US can apply for Twitter’s Ticketed Spaces on the Android and iOS app, and Twitter’s Super Follow will be available on the iOS app only for now.
