Twitter has announced a payment feature called Super Follows, as part of its upcoming features. The Super Follows allows users to charge their followers for access to additional content.

The update is targeted particularly at creators as direct payments have become increasingly important for them in recent years. Twitter sees it as a way to let creators and publishers get paid directly by their fans.

The additional contents can be categorized as 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 also announced a new feature called Communities, which appears to be its take on something like Facebook Groups. People can create and join groups around specific interests allowing them to see more tweets focused on those topics.

Twitter, however, has given no timeline yet for when either of these features will launch. Twitter listed them as “what’s next” for its platform during a presentation for analysts and investors.
