What Are Creator Subscriptions?

With Twitter’s updated creator subscription program, any user with 500 followers or more can monetize their Twitter presence.

Creators can charge subscriptions of $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 per month for access to exclusive content. Creators can also add other paid incentives and advertise them on their accounts.

Other features for creator subscriptions include:

  • Subscriber badges for people who subscribe to a creator’s content
  • Exclusive, paid Tweets
  • A subscribers tab for creators to see their subscribers’ Twitter activity
  • A subscriber badge creators can see next to the names of users who subscribe to their content.
  • Dedicated links describing your subscription offering on and off Twitter
  • Subscriber only spaces

With Twitter creator subscriptions, users can monetize their audience and build an engaged following. Nonsubscribers will still be able to see your public Tweets, but they won’t have access to your exclusive content.

How Can I Find Accounts With Creator Subscriptions?

While there is no way to search specifically for accounts with creator subscriptions, it’s easy to tell if a Twitter user is a subscriber.

If you’re wondering whether a user has a creator subscription, there are several ways to find out from their profile.

Twitter creators will have several badges noting their status. You’ll see a purple badge next to the “Follow” button that will allow you to subscribe with one click.

Creators will also have a tab on their account that says “subscription Tweets.” When you click this, you’ll be prompted to “unlock more with subscriptions.” When you click “subscribe,” you’ll gain access to the creator’s exclusive Tweets.
