Twitter "Super Follows" will you pay to read more stuff

Post by born2bewild » March 6th, 2021, 10:11 am

This is not going to work for me, I will never pay to read some tweets!



"Twitter announced a pair of big upcoming features today: the ability for users to charge their followers for access to additional content, and the ability to create and join groups based around specific interests. They’re two of the more substantial changes to Twitter in a while, but they also fit snugly into models that have been popular and successful on other social platforms.

The payment feature, called Super Follows, will allow Twitter users to charge followers and give them access to extra content. That could be bonus tweets, access to a community group, subscription to a newsletter, or a badge indicating your support. In a mockup screenshot, Twitter showed an example where a user charges $4.99 per month to receive a series of perks. Twitter sees it as a way to let creators and publishers get paid directly by their fans."

When they banned President Trump they shot themselves in the foot, you know how popular he was, any platform he goes on is an instant winner.

If I owned Twitter I would sell it before it really fails.

This is simple, raise your hand if you will pay. I for one will not pay.
