Twitter announced new features earlier today, but one caught the eye of many. The Super Follows: A system which allows users to now charge for Tweets.
Twitter has confirmed it is exploring adding a new ‘Super Follows’ feature to let users get paid for exclusive Tweets and content.
In a mockup screenshot, Twitter showed an example where a user charges $4.99 per month to receive a series of perks. Twitter sees it as a way to let creators and publishers get paid directly by their fans.
The idea Twitter is looking at expanding its revenue options through new features is not new, but the latest announcement seems like one of the more firmer indications of where the micro-blogging platforming might be heading in the future.
Twitter also announced a new feature called Communities, which appear to be its take on something like Facebook Groups.
