Twitter Makes ‘Super Follows’ Feature Available to All iOS Users

Twitter has rolled out the Patreon-like Super Follows feature to iOS users around the world.

Super Follows was revealed in February as a way for Twitter users to offer exclusive content to followers willing to pay a monthly subscription fee. It’s supposed to be a win-win for Twitter, which gets to diversify its revenue streams, and folks whose tweets are good enough to pay for.

The feature was released to a small number of North American users in September. Twitter said at the time that Super Follows creators will receive 97% of their revenues until they earn $50,000—at which point their portion of the payout will drop to 80% and Twitter’s will rise to 20%.

Now the feature is being made available to more Twitter users:

But Super Follows is still limited to iOS devices, and Twitter hasn’t said when it will finally bring the feature to Android or the web. (The support article describing Super Follows hasn’t been updated since the feature’s global rollout, though, so perhaps more information will arrive soon.)

The expanded availability of Super Follows is part of Twitter’s broader push to monetize its platform. It recently added more features to its Twitter Blue monthly subscription service, for example, and made its Tips feature available to everyone on the platform.
