WEB DESK: Microblogging site Twitter says it plans to impose subscription charges on accessing information from high profile accounts in the future.
According to the foreign news agency, Twitter has announced a possible ‘new super follows service’ during its annual investor meeting, which is a step towards finding new ways to earn money away from advertising targets.
A Twitter spokesperson said that through Super Follows, publishers and content creators would be able to get direct user support and with that benefit, they would be able to create better content.
A Twitter spokesman said they were also reviewing the benefits of their service and examining practices that encourage or discourage product features.
As per the explanation given during the presentation, Twitter users will be able to receive newsletters, special content and even virtual badges by financially supporting content creators through Super Follows.
Keep in mind that so far Twitter’s only source of revenue is advertising and promoted posts, but a new path will be opened through super followers.
Carolina Milanese, an expert who attended the meeting, said she did not think the audience would agree to pay for exclusive content.
