(Pocket-lint) – Twitter has long promised content creators more ways to earn revenue directly from their fan base, and today the company is taking giant steps to help achieve that goal. The social media giant today introduced a new feature that’s dubbed “Super Followers” - a new option that allows users to charge up to $ 9.99 per month to access exclusive content from Twitter.

With Super Follows, users can create an extra level of conversation on Twitter (share bonus Tweets and more!)
For starters, Twitter opens the feature with three price points users can set their profile: $ 2.99 / $ 4.99 / $ 9.99, but, in addition, earlier this year Twitter released a feature called jar. Tip, where some verified accounts might allow an additional button to their profile that allows fans to send money directly to them.

Are Super Followers open to everyone?
In the blog post Initial, Twitter clarifies that Super Followers will only be available to a small group of users in the United States to begin with.
We’re just getting started and right now a small group in the US that have applied can set up a Super Follows subscription. People can continue to request to join the waitlist to set up a Super Follows subscription by opening the sidebar on your home timeline, tapping on Monetization, and then selecting Super Follows. To be eligible for the waitlist now, you must have 10,000 or more followers, be at least 18 years old, have tweeted 25 times in the past 30 days, be in the US and follow our super following policy.
