On Tuesday, Twitter said that it will allow its users to apply for the ticketed spaces and super Follows features for free. To apply for Super Follows, one must have at least 10,000 Twitter followers, and a minimum of 1,000 followers is required to apply for the first access to Ticketed Spaces.
To get the feedback, Twitter is looking for a small group of people who can test Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows with their audiences. As per the reports, Ticketed Spaces is available on both Android and iOS devices, while Super Follows is only available on iOS. The apps for these features are distinct, and they are presently only available to people in the United States.
Ticketed Spaces and Super follows both these services are part of Twitter’s strategy to remain competitive with other social media platforms by allowing content developers to earn money from their fan bases. According to Esther Crawford, senior product manager at Twitter, the firm wants to choose “a diverse set of voices,” from the applications.
On Twitter, Ticketed Spaces allows users to offer unique, exclusive live audio experiences, but followers cannot participate for free. The creator’s content created for the Spaces must be fascinating or compelling enough to get followers to pay for it. In short, Twitter is providing users with a fair opportunity to earn money through Spaces. The price of the ticket is determined by the host, and it might range from $1 to $999. A Ticketed Space may accommodate up to 100 individuals.
On the other hand, Super Followers allows users to have a direct interaction with their most engaged followers, which may lead to monthly revenue, as claimed by Twitter. Influencers and social media makers will benefit the most from this technology. Users just have to come up with content that their target audience appreciates at a price they can pay. The host also has the option to personalize what they charge ($2.99, $4.99, or $9.99) each month.
In order to assist up-and-coming developers to earn money at the outset, Twitter will take a 3% share of the creator’s revenue until the user reaches $50,000 (approximately Rs. 37 Lakhs) in profits, after which Twitter will keep 20% as revenue.
