Twitter takes on OnlyFans & Patreon with “Super Follows”

A new feature called “Super Follows” will allow users to charge for access to additional content in a concerted play to claw back content creators from subscription platforms such as Patreon and OnlyFans.

In a surprise move that might have one thinking Twitter may be finally developing a business plans the new feature could bring both users and dollars to Twitter’s bottom-line.

The additional content users can gate behind a Super Follow can include bonus tweets, subscription to a newsletter, badges to show your support and access to another new feature called “Communities”, which look to be the company’s take on Facebook Groups.

We don’t know when Twitter plans on releasing either of the features, both were showcased during an investor presentation and described as “what’s next”.
