Microblogging site, twitter is now planning to roll out ticketed spaces feature. This would allow the creators to earn money by hosting exclusive events. The hosts would allow entry to specific Twitter users and charge them. This will enable creators to make money while sitting at their home.
Who Can Earn Money?
Up until now, rumors have it that feature would be available to specific users. The feature has not been rolled out yet. To earn money, these are the must haves:
- At least 1,000 followers
- Hosted three spaces in the last 30 days
- Be at least 18 years old
Jack Dorsey’s firm is collaborating with Stripe to handle payments. Details say that users will receive 80 percent of revenue after Apple and Google’s in-app purchase fees are taken.
Earlier Twitter rolled out ‘Space’ feature. It allowed Twitterati with 600 followers to host audio conferences.
Twitter is Innovating
Twitter is testing multiple features. For instance, it recently rolled out Tip Jar feature. Twitter seems to be making itself more inclusive. Users will know an account’s Tip Jar is enabled if they see a Tip Jar icon next to the Follow button on their handle.
You can tap the icon and select whichever payment service or platform you prefer. Then you will be taken off Twitter to the selected app where you can send money.
What’s the moto?
The apparent objective of Twitter innovating seems to be very simple: Money makes the mare go.
As TikTok, Instagarm, and Facebook are in the race to attract more creators and advertisers, Twitter seems to be gaining ground in providing more to users. There was a time when users could not tweet past 140 characters. Twitter innovated and extended the limit to 280 characters.
Now the latest push seems to be making Twitter more user friendly and enabling monetization options. We can expect twitter to add ‘Edit Tweet’ option in months to come because up until now, twitter has not enabled this feature.
