How will Twitter Super Follow work for Creators? – Eligibility Criteria and More
The reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong shared some screenshots on Twitter regarding how this latest Super Follow feature will look like. According to his research, the Super Follow feature will not be available for all the creators, and to be eligible for it, you must have:
- Atleast 10,000 followers
- Must have posted 25 tweets in the last 30 days
- Be atleast 18 years old
Accounts that will meet these criteria will be able to charge their followers a Super Follow subscription fee. After paying the fees, users will able to get the following perks:
- Label as a Super Follower
- Access to Community Groups and Support
- Bonus Content (Exclusive Tweets from their favorite creators)
- Many more to come
Although the fees for this Super Follow feature have not been officially revealed by the platform, but according to Wong’s leaks, it will be around $4.99 a month. So, if a creator manages to convert atleast 2% of its total followers to pay for this feature, he/she will be able to earn around $6,250 per month (which is not fixed yet, but certainly a good amount).
Release date of Super Follow feature by Twitter
According to the sources, Twitter hasn’t revealed the official release date of the Super Follower feature, but it will be launched soon in some countries.

What can we expect more from Twitter in the future?
The platform will add more monetization features in the future to generate high revenue via exclusive content by its popular creators.
