Good News for Content Creators on Twitter

Twitter has announced a new initiative that allows select content creators on the platform to earn a portion of the advertising revenue generated by the company1291113. The content creators will get a share of the revenue from ads displayed in their replies, and to be eligible, the creators should be verified users with at least 5 million impressions on their posts in each of the last 3 months and have a Stripe payment account121113

This move by Twitter aligns with its broader strategy to empower content creators and offer them avenues to earn a livelihood directly through the platform9. Earlier this year, Twitter introduced the option for users to offer paid subscriptions to their content, providing an additional revenue stream for creators19. Elon Musk, the billionaire who acquired Twitter in October of last year, has previously stated that the company will pass on the entire subscription revenue to creators during the first year, excluding payment gateway charges111.

Twitter is trying to draw more content creators to the platform, and this new initiative is part of its effort to help people earn a living directly on Twitter2. According to owner Elon Musk, the first round of creator payouts will total $5 million and will be cumulative from the month of February onward. These payouts will be delivered via Stripe13.

This is great news for content creators who can now earn money through their content on Twitter. It is also a positive step towards Twitter’s goal of attracting more content creators to the platform and providing them with opportunities to monetize their content.

There are a few pieces of good news for Twitter content creators under Elon Musk’s ownership.

  • Subscriptions: Twitter is introducing a subscription feature that will allow creators to charge followers a monthly fee for exclusive content. This is similar to the subscription features offered by other platforms like Patreon and OnlyFans.
  • Ads revenue sharing: Twitter is also starting to share ad revenue with creators. This will allow creators to earn money from the ads that are displayed on their tweets.
  • Email addresses: Twitter will now provide subscribers’ email addresses to creators. This will allow creators to easily interact with their subscribers outside of Twitter.

These changes are a positive development for content creators on Twitter. They will give creators more ways to make money from their content and build relationships with their audience.

Here are some additional details about each of these changes:

  • Subscriptions: The subscription feature will allow creators to set their own prices for their subscriptions. Twitter will take a 30% cut of the subscription revenue. Creators will be able to offer different levels of subscription, with different levels of access to exclusive content.
  • Ads revenue sharing: Twitter will share ad revenue with creators on a tiered basis. Creators who are verified and have over 10,000 followers will be eligible to share in ad revenue. The percentage of ad revenue that creators earn will depend on their number of followers.
  • Email addresses: Twitter will only provide email addresses to creators who have opted into the program. Creators will be able to use the email addresses to send newsletters, updates, and other messages to their subscribers.

These changes are still in the early stages of development, but they have the potential to significantly improve monetization opportunities for Twitter content creators.
