3 ways you can try to make money from your tweets

Most of these features are limited to certain users depending on location, operating systems, and follower count. Still, if you meet the criteria for one or more of these factors, you can easily apply from your account and hope the dollar bills start rolling in.

The biggest hurdle to making money off of Super Follows is that the feature is only currently available for iOS, and you’ll have to meet a long list of criteria to access it. For starters, you’ll have to live in the US, be at least 18 years old, have a minimum of 10,000 followers, operate an account that is at least three months old, and post at least 25 tweets every 30 days.

The company is actively reaching out to creators who are eligible to have Super Followers. But if you think you meet the criteria and haven’t received an invitation, you can proactively apply. On the mobile app, tap on your profile picture, go to Settings and Privacy, and then find Monetization. There, tap on Super Follows and work through the steps. Twitter will not email you about the state of your application, so you’ll need to return to this menu to find out whether you’ve been accepted or not. Unfortunately, there’s no saying just how long you will have to wait, or if there’s any way to appeal a rejected application, so try not to go overboard checking the menu 11 times a day.

Now, for the most important part: the amount of money you’ll be able to make. Of course, this will depend on how many people subscribe to your content and how much your subscription costs. Twitter says you’ll be eligible to receive up to 97 percent of what you make, which means the platform takes a 3 percent cut. But there’s a catch: this percentage only applies to profits smaller than $50,000 across the platform (that is, combining all the ways you make money off of Twitter). After your earnings pass this threshold, the company’s cut jumps to 20 percent.

And that’s not all. The 97 percent of profits you’re eligible to take home is subject to in-app purchase fees charged by your operating system’s app store. Since Super Follows are only available on iOS right now, that means you’d have to subtract Apple’s 30 percent cut from that, which leaves you with a profit of about 67 percent of the revenue. This won’t be a problem for Android users, though, so once the feature is available for Google’s operating system it’ll become a tempting reason to switch to the other side of the mobile OS street.

Making money off of social media requires creators to make the most out of every sudden burst of exposure, but it’s hard work to reply to your own viral tweets. It’s much easier to have a tip jar. Twitter announced this feature back in May, and it basically consists of a button on your profile that your followers can click on to financially thank you for the A+ content and legendary memes you’re delivering.

When you enable this feature, you’ll see the tips button (it looks like a stack of bills) right next to the Follow button. When other users click on it, they’ll see a list of all the payment services you’ve connected to your account. So far, Twitter supports Bandcamp, Cash App, Patreon, PayPal, and Venmo.

The greatest benefit of tipping on Twitter is that the company takes no cut, so you get 100 percent of the money your followers give you. But as you might have guessed, the feature has its restrictions. At the moment of writing, tipping is only available on the English version of the platform, and only creators (a term that is quite ambiguous), journalists, experts, and nonprofits are eligible to enable it. In a blog post, the company said they’ll be expanding to other languages and user profiles “soon,” but provided no timeline.
