The person you Super Follow won’t see your payment details or credit card information.

In addition, when you make a purchase on the web, Twitter collects certain elements about you in the embedded form you fill out, while the remaining data is collected by Stripe, our payment partner.

I want to Super Follow someone, how do I subscribe?

You can subscribe with Twitter to Super Follow someone from their profile or from a subscription link shared with you.

If that person has a Super Follows offering, and you don’t already follow them, tap or click the Super Follows icon next to the blue Follow button in the top right corner of their profile. You’ll see a preview of the type of bonus content they may offer their Super Followers, and the subscription price.

What's a subscription link?

A subscription link is a way for Creators and their Super Followers to easily invite others to Super Follow someone. 

 

What can I expect after I Super Follow someone?

Super Follows benefits include:

  • Exclusive Tweets:
    In addition to the regular Tweets the person you Super Follow posts, you’ll also see Tweets in your Home timeline posted exclusively for Super Followers to interact with and reply to.
  • Notification of exclusive Tweets (iOS and Adroid only):
    Super Followers on Twitter for iOS and Android also have the option to set up exclusive Tweet notifications so they get notified when Super Follows Tweets are posted by Super Follow creators they subscribe to.
  • Super Follower-only Spaces: 
    Participate in live, subscriber-only conversations hosted by the creator(s) you Super Follow. You’ll join these subscriber-only Spaces as a listener who can request to speak in the Space.
  • A Super Follows Badge:
    When you reply to a Tweet from someone you Super Follow, a public badge next to your display name in the reply will identify you as one of their Super Followers. Anyone can see this badge, but if you’re on Twitter for iOS or Android, you can choose to hide the badge from your replies to a Super Follow creator’s public Tweets by turning the setting off. 

    Even when this setting is turned off, your Super Follower badge will still appear to other Super Followers when you reply to Super Follower-only Tweets. The creator will always be able to see who is Super Following them. This setting is on by default.
  • Super Follows Tweets tab:
    Navigate to the profile of the person you Super Follow and tap their Super Follows Tweets tab. This tab lets you see all of someone’s Super Follows Tweets in one place, and you’ll have access to it for as long as you Super Follow them. 
 

How do I unsubscribe if I decide I no longer want to Super Follow someone?

If you ever need to cancel a Super Follows subscription, you’ll manage your subscription through whatever platform you used to subscribe. If you purchased your subscription from:

Twitter for iOS: cancel from your Apple device’s Account Settings or in the “Subscriptions” section of the App Store.

How does my Twitter experience change if I don’t pay for Super Follows?

We understand that Super Follows isn’t for everybody, and that’s ok! The free Tweets you know and love aren’t going anywhere. Super Follows is optional, and meant for people looking for more ways to support their favorite voices on Twitter.

 

Can I still follow someone if I don’t pay for Super Follows?

Yes! To see regular Tweets posted by someone who has a Super Follows offering, simply follow them as you normally would.

 

Are free Tweets going away?

Free Twitter isn’t going away. Super Follows subscriptions simply offer an additional way for people to support their favorite voices on Twitter.
