Twitter has shared its commitment with content creators on its platform, to whom it will provide new tools such as the ability to tip through cryptocurrencies or to access resources with which to monetize the audio programs in Spaces.
The company has already introduced tips (tips) in the United States, a function with which followers can make a payment to their favorite creators through third-party services to support their work, and which will go global this Thursday for iOS (and soon for Android). As an extension of this tool, it has announced ‘tips with crypto’, which allows payments through bitcoin.
Creator support tools also include the Superfollows -monthly subscriptions-, which are available in the United States and Canada for iOS devices, with the intention of reaching more countries soon; and the newsletter. They will also have at their disposal a new dashboard that unifies performance metrics in one place.
And given the NFT works boom (acronym for non-fungible token) based on ‘blockchain’ technology, the company is working on an authenticator, as they have shared from Twitter this Thursday in a meeting with the press.
Space will bring news
Spaces, the Twitter feature that allows you to organize and follow audio events, too will have news in the coming monthssuch as recordings so you can listen to talks or shows later, or improved ways to discover these spaces in the timeline or in dedicated places.
The company has indicated that it continues with the expansion of paid spaces, which allow your organizers to set prices and audience size. It has also announced a series of resources (technical, marketing, financial) with which to help these users to monetize their programs.
On the other hand, that people can have a voice on the platform, so that they feel comfortable and safe, is another of the areas in which the company works, which maintains its defense of the importance of public conversation and the role that it has Twitter on it.
In this sense, the Control over the conversation becomes important. The company prepares functions that will allow you to remove followers without being notified of this action, or even leave a conversation where we have been mentioned. Twitter has also announced improvements to word filters, which allow advanced controls in real time.
Profile labels let you know what type of account it is and who is behind it. For the moment, there is a test tag for automated accounts, but the company works on more (for businesses, brands or commemorative accounts).
It also prepares a prompt for when a user wants to join a conversation, letting you know in advance if the tone has been raised to discussion.
