What does a Super Follows subscription include?

People who offer Super Follows subscriptions choose what bonus content they share. Right now, they can only share bonus content through Super Follower-only Tweets. As we roll out further, we hope to include Spaces, newsletters and other Twitter features as potential bonus content.

Can I share Super Follows Tweets?

As a Super Follower, you can Retweet and Quote Tweet Super Follows Tweets. Only other Super Followers will see Retweets, shared links, or Direct Messages of Super Follows Tweets. Non-subscribers will only see your comment in a Quote Tweet, but will be instructed to Super Follow the creator in order to see the Super Follows Tweet.

 

Can I Super Follow more than one person?

If you’d like to Super Follow more than one person, you’ll simply visit each person’s profile and  tap Super Follow to learn more and purchase their specific subscription. Each subscription is a separate purchase. Every month, your subscriptions auto-renew on or around the same date you initially subscribed to each profile, and until you pause or cancel your subscription.
