Twitter will offer a new option called “Super-Follow”, thanks to which a user can be paid for his content.
In the world of social networks, as we know, the first source of income is advertising, produced using algorithms, which themselves operate from collected user data. A question that becomes more and more sensitive over time, as shown in particular by Apple’s announcements seeking to make consumers master of their data, or the controversy that has caught up with WhatsApp in recent weeks. A problem that has apparently stirred the minds on the side of at Twitter, which has just announced the upcoming creation of a new paid service, says “Super-Follow”.
With the latter, which will be priced according to The Verge newspaper at $ 4.99, a user of Twitter will become “Super-Follower”, which will allow it to benefit from a certain number of contents whose creators will have reduced access. For example, a media can charge for access to some of the information it publishes on the social network. For the moment, we do not yet know the details of this new measure, its date of application, or the share of this tariff that will be paid to content producers. We will have to wait for the next few months to find out more. Wait & See.
