Super Follows on Twitter: Everything You Need to Know (2021)
Thanks to Twitter announcing the service in the US, we now know the parameters of Super Follows. Prior to the global deployment, Twitter may offer extra benefits to Super Followers, but the core functions that are currently available are probably going to stay the same. After that, let’s examine Twitter Super Follows.
What is Super Follows on Twitter?
Twitter offers Super Follows as a paid subscription service. It’s the second one after Twitter Blue. But this time, the network is providing creators the choice to sell subscriptions and monetise their material rather than Twitter itself offering a subscription service.
To commercialise their material, eligible Twitter users can use Super Follows, much like content subscription services like Patreon and OnlyFans. Your content’s potential users have a choice between three subscription tiers: $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99. As part of the company’s initial testing, the feature is presently accessible in the United States.
Therefore, you can apply to join the Super Follows test group if you’re interested in selling Super Follow subscriptions on your Twitter profile.
Super Follows Eligibility
Twitter developers who meet the following criteria are able to sign up and apply for Super Follows:
- Be 18 years or older Super Follows requires creators to be 18 and older. You can t sign up for Super Follows as a creator if you are under 18.
- Have at least 10,000 followers According to Twitter, participants should have 10,000 followers or more to be eligible.
- Must have posted at least 25 tweets in the past month Participants should also post regularly and maintain this frequency of tweets going forward.

- Have not violated Twitter s user agreement, content monetization standards, or ad policies.
Super Follows Revenue Model
Super Follows has three different subscription tiers that creators can choose to offer in the US: $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99. After in-app purchase fees, creators will receive 97% of subscription earnings, according to Twitter. In case you were unaware, in-app purchases are subject to a 30% cut from both Google and Apple. Let’s use an illustration to put that in context.
Let’s take the example of a creator who used the Super Follows tool to earn $100 in a month. The 30% portion that Apple or Google will take from your revenues reduces the total to $70. Your earnings will now be $67.9 after Twitter deducts its 3% cut from this $70. During the application process, the business provides a conservative estimate of how much you could make from Super Follows in a month (detailed below). Picture via Twitter/Ryan Hoover
There is a catch, though. Twitter will raise its split from 3% to 20% if a creative has made $50,000 in total from Super Follows. As a result, once they reach $50K, artists start to receive 80% of the revenue. With its several new premium membership services, Twitter is aggressively boosting up its monetization strategy.
Super Follows Payout Criteria
The minimum compensation level of $50 must be met by a creator in order to receive payment from Super Follows on Twitter. You don’t need to worry if you don’t reach the minimal threshold in a month because the balance will carry over to the next month automatically.
Twitter will send you a revenue share payment via the Payment Processor approximately 60 days after the end of the month in which the Subscriptions revenue was collected, in accordance with the terms and conditions for Super Follows on Twitter.
How to Activate Super Follows on Your Twitter Account?
In other words, the processing of the first month’s payment could take up to three months. You can anticipate the monies to appear in your bank account in 3 to 5 business days after it has been processed.
You may apply for Super Follows right now if you live in the US and own an iPhone. Super Follows will not be available for Android users in the US or for developers in other countries just yet. Activate Super Follows on your Twitter account right away by following these steps:
Once the hamburger menu at the top left corner has been expanded, open Twitter for iOS and touch on Monetization. Select Super Follows from the possibilities for monetization. The next step is to choose your content category, platform, and explain how you want to use Super Follows. In the application form, Twitter will also inquire about your ethnicity, race, and gender identity.
What Perks will Super Followers Get on Twitter?
If you satisfy the prerequisites (explained above), you will be included in the test population. Twitter says it will put your name to a queue if you are qualified but not selected for the initial test phase. Additionally, Twitter will let you know if your Super Follows applications have been approved so you can start selling subscriptions on your profile.
