6.3.2021 | Twitter announced the new “super follow” feature
Twitter has announced plans for a new “super follow” feature which will enable account holders to charge for exclusive additional content. According to the company, this could take the form of extra tweets, joining a community group or receiving a newsletter.
Twitter unveiled this plan at a virtual event held for investors. It also said it was testing a live audio discussion service – which has proved popular on a new rival, the audio-only social network Clubhouse.
The news has received a mixed reaction among Twitter users. Social media consultant Matt Navarra asked his followers whether they would be prepared to pay a premium for their favorite accounts - and 85% responded that they would not.
