It’s been a few months since we heard about a Twitter feature called Super Follows. As on Twitch and other platforms, this concept aims to set up paid subscriptions to take advantage of additional content and other benefits.
This weekend, Jane Manchun Wong tweeted screenshots of what Super Follows should look like. The latter, whose information is often very reliable, states that the Super Follows program is limited to users with at least 10,000 subscribers who have posted at least 25 tweets in the last 30 days.
As explained earlier, the goal of this paid program is to provide users with exclusive content. This content in categories like “art”, “fashion”, “sports” or even “adult content”. A kind of Patreon in Twitter sauce.

At this point, Twitter hasn’t commented on Jane Manchun Wong’s announcement, but we do know that a Super Follow is expected to cost around $ 4.99 per month. The increasing amount of information about this feature suggests that it should be revealed soon.
Twitter continues to focus on banning social media in Nigeria
An announcement that, however, after the social network was closed in Nigeria, could take longer than expected. On Wednesday, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari posted a tweet commemorating the Biafran War, a civil war that ran from July 1967 to January 1970.
A decision that the Nigerian government did not seem to have made, which stated after the tweet was deleted: “This platform is used for activities that could undermine the existence of Nigeria.”
For its part, Twitter said: “We are deeply concerned about the Twitter lockdown in Nigeria. Access to the free internet and an open internet is an essential human right in modern society. We will endeavor to restore access to all in Nigeria who rely on Twitter to communicate and connect with the world.
