Twitter has announced upcoming massive changes to their platform, including allowing users to get paid by followers and the ability to create groups based on certain subjects.
Users will soon be able to get paid by what is referred to as Super Followers access to bonus content, such as a newsletter subscription or bonus tweets. Direct paid subscription features have been successful on other social media platforms, though Twitter has not revealed what sort of fee they will be taking once the feature is finally added to their service.
There will also be a new group feature added to the service called Communities. Examples of these groups people can join to see content related to a specific topic include “#SocialJustice,” “CrazyforCats,” “Plant Parents,” and “Surf Gurlz.”
