Twitter rolls out ability for creators to host Super Follows-only Spaces – TechCrunch

twitter has Announced which is implementing Super Follows-only Spaces. Creators offering Super Follows subscriptions can now host Spaces exclusively for their subscribers. The social media giant says this new option will give creators a way to “deliver an extra layer of conversation to their top followers.”

Subscribers from around the world on iOS and Android will be able to join and request to speak in Super Follows-only Spaces, while subscribers on Twitter’s web platform can join and listen but will not have the option to request to speak. Creators can start a space for super fans only by selecting the “Only super fans can join” button when starting a new space. Users who aren’t super followers of a creator will still see the space, but won’t be able to access it unless they subscribe.

It’s worth noting that the new Super Follow-only option for Spaces isn’t the only way creators can have exclusive Spaces. For example, Twitter launched its Ticketed Spaces feature last year to allow creators to set a price for users to listen in a space. Creators can set their ticket price between $1 and $999 and can also limit the number of tickets that are sold.

Super Follows, first revealed in February 2021, allows users to subscribe to accounts they like for a monthly subscription fee in exchange for exclusive content. Super Follows is currently in testing with select creators in the United States on iOS. Eligible accounts can set the price for Super Follow subscriptions, with the option to charge $2.99, $4.99 or $9.99 per month.

The launch of Super Follows-only Spaces adds another layer of exclusivity to Super Follows subscriptions. Twitter says it plans to roll out more Super Follows features to allow creators to grow their audience and get closer to their most engaged followers.

Twitter says its research shows that hosting consistent spaces leads to more follower growth and also gives creators more ways to engage with their followers. The company found that consistently hosting Spaces, around twice a week, leads to 17% follower growth in a quarter. In addition, the company says that creators who host consistent spaces for a month see 6-7% growth in followers, and creators who do so for two months see 10% growth in followers.
