Convert followers to fans and fans to backgrounds

The microblogging social network wants to help content creators who contribute to public conversations through Super Follows, Tip Jar, and their hosts on Spaces.

What will this tool be like?

  • Super Follows : Twitter is testing Super Follows with a small group of creators on iOS, in the United States. This is a monthly subscription service so that creators can charge for an extra level of content, such as behind-the-scenes opinions or private conversations, so their followers can have more of the content they like.

  • Tips: O Tip Jar, as it is known in English, allows you to send and receive payments through third-party services. Since May, a small group of people in the United States have had access to Tips, but today the tool has already been deployed globally for iOS devices. They also added more Tipped payment services so that people can do it with Bitcoin by using Strike , a payments application built on the Bitcoin Lightning Network, which allows people to send and receive bitcoins for free and instantly.

  • New Spaces Host Program: Twitter announced that it will soon introduce a Spaces Host program designed to provide financial, technical and marketing support to emerging audio creators interested in creating recurring content on Spaces.

More ways to tweet

The social network that became famous for only allowing 140 characters per message also announced today that it will open up new ways to open a conversation, beyond its current 280 characters.

  • Spaces updates: During the next few months, the following improvements will be seen (only in the United States):

    • Recording and playback of content, so that people can experience conversations in Spaces after they have already taken place.

    • Improved discovery of Spaces and new ways to find them at the top of the Timeline or in dedicated locations.

    • More accesses to Ticketed Spaces, giving Hosts the option to set prices and audience volume so they are rewarded for the experiences they create.
