SuperFollow gives you supporter badges, exclusive newsletters, exclusive content, deals and discounts, and access to the community. The monthly price is $ 4.99 (about 530 yen) and you can cancel at any time. There seems to be a setting that only people who super follow can see specific tweets and replies.

At the same event, Twitter also announced that it plans to introduce a 'Revue' feature that allows users to publish newsletters for free or for a fee, a group feature, and the ability to automatically block and mute fraudulent accounts. These new features are still under development, but Twitter says it will share a lot of information in the coming months.

With the rise of Patreon and OnlyFans subscription services for creators from other companies, Twitter users and investors have long sought to create their own subscription model. 'With the advent of SuperFollow, we will have access to a wider range of revenue streams,' Twitter said. Meanwhile, no details were given on how to share the revenue with the creators. Twitter says it aims to reach 315 million active users and double its annual revenue by the end of 2023.
