Twitter is about to roll out two new premium features to its users, which allows users of the platform to charge their followers for access to additional content, and the ability to create and join groups based on specific interests.
The first feature called Super Follows allows users to charge their followers for access to special content. For a set monthly amount, the Super Followers will be able to, say, see exclusive content, get a subscribers-only newsletter, deals and discounts on your products, community access, a special supporter badge, and more.
Twitter sees it as a way to let creators and publishers get paid directly by their fans.
The second feature which is communities, allows users to create and join groups that have a particular theme or interest. Just like we have on Facebook groups. Once the user joins the group of interest, he/she will be able to see the posts from like-minded individuals.
Developers of Twitter have now revealed a feature called Safety Mode, which according to the picture, will detect, remove, and ban abusive and spammy content from other accounts. The ban will prevent those accounts from engaging for 7 days, and their replies will be shown to fewer people. When these accounts are detected, Twitter will show you a notification.
No word yet on when it will be rolling out the features listed above even though Twitter listed them as “what’s next” for its platform during a presentation for analysts.
