Super Follows FAQ

Getting started with Super Follows


How do Super Follows work?

If you are selected to participate in the Super Follows test group, people on Twitter can pay to Super Follow you. They’ll receive perks such as bonus content and interactions from the people they Super Follow. You may earn a share of revenue from people who pay to Super Follow you. Read our Super Follows Creator Terms to learn more about revenue potential. 


What’s the eligibility criteria to participate in Super Follows?

To be eligible for Super Follows, you must meet our minimum application requirements:

  1. Be 18 years or older
  2. Have at least 10K followers
  3. Have Tweeted at least 25 times in the past 30 days

To see the complete list of eligibility criteria, please read our Super Follows Policy. 

Note: Accepted Super Follows participants must also maintain a minimum of 25 Tweets every 30 days.


Who can sign up to participate in Super Follows?

At this time, the number of people who can apply to offer Super Follows subscriptions is limited to people in the U.S. who meet the minimum eligibility criteria. If you are eligible to apply, submit an application from the main menu of your Twitter app. If you’re eligible, but not selected, we’ll add you to our waitlist.


Where can I find the Super Follows application?

From the Twitter app: 

  1. Navigate to the main menu.
  2. Tap Monetization.
  3. Tap Super Follows.

How will I know the status of my Super Follows application?

Right now we’re testing Super Follows with a very limited audience, so we won’t be sending status updates for pending applications.

If you meet the minimum requirements, and you’re approved to offer a Super Follows subscription, you’ll receive a notice in your Twitter app, and an email to the address you provided in your application. You’ll need to agree to the Super Follows Creator Terms to apply. 

Applicants who meet the minimum requirements, but are not selected for the initial test group are automatically placed on a waitlist. They’ll be notified in-app if their application becomes approved. 


What content will I be expected to offer?

Ultimately, the content you create is up to you. Here’s what you can offer your Super Followers for this initial test:

  • Badges: Super Followers get badges that identify them as your Super Follower when they reply to your Tweets so it’s easier to connect with them.
  • Bonus content: Share unscripted thoughts, ideas, and opinions with extra Tweets, and personal replies only your Super Followers can see.

Will non-subscribers still be able to see my content?

Non-subscribers will still be able to see your regular public Tweets, but we won’t share your Super Follower content with them.


What if I decide I don't want to participate in Super Follows anymore?

We understand sometimes life happens. If you are approved to offer a Super Follows subscription and need to step away from the test group, we’ll work with you to determine the best exit strategy for you and your Super Followers.

Getting Paid


Who sets the price of Super Follows subscriptions?

You’ll set the value of the content you’ll offer by choosing from one of three price points: $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99.


How much revenue can I earn?

You’ll be eligible to earn up to 97%* of revenue on your Super Follows subscription, after in-app purchase fees, and until you reach $50,000 in lifetime earnings across all Twitter monetization products. 

*Note: After $50,000 in lifetime earnings, you can earn up to 80% of revenue after in-app purchase fees. Read our Super Follows Creator Terms for more on the revenue share and what terms and conditions apply.


How will I get paid?

Once an applicant has been approved to move forward as part of the Super Follows test group, they'll have to set up an account with our payout provider.  

The available payout methods from our payout provider are determined by the creator’s location. 


When can I get a payout?

In the US, there is a $50 minimum threshold to receive a payout. If you don't meet the $50 threshold, your balance rolls over into the next month.

Please note that account balances are adjusted when chargebacks are successfully processed. Account balances are also adjusted if Apple or Google issues a refund for a subscription based on their policies.


I have met the minimum withdrawal amount, why can’t I request a payout?

Your payout request may not be processed if there is an information mismatch in your account with our payout provider. You may need to re-add your bank account details (or debit card) to your payout provider.


How do refunds work?

All purchases are final and non-refundable. That includes subscriptions linked to Twitter accounts that have been suspended, or that you have lost access to for any other reason. Super Followers may unsubscribe for any reason, at any time, and must do so to ensure that they are no longer billed for the subscription. 


How do chargebacks impact my payout?

Chargebacks will be deducted from a creator’s total payouts. Twitter will not charge creators for fees associated with chargebacks, but this policy is subject to change without notice.


My payout was processed, why haven’t I received the funds?

Typically, it takes 3-5 business days for funds to appear in your bank account. In some cases, it can take up to 10 business days.


I file taxes in the US, will I receive a Form 1099?

Yes. People in the US will receive an IRS Form 1099 if they have earned more than $600 USD in the previous tax year. A copy of your 1099 form will be sent to you.
