Twitter has added a Creator Dashboard, a central place for monetization tools, as it competes among a sea of services aiming to lure creators with promises of a paycheck.
The Creator Dashboard will act as an all-in-one hub for Twitter's monetization tools, giving users the ability to track how much they're earning. The dashboard also lets creators manage estimated payout dates, which can take up to 90 days to hit their bank accounts once they've met the $50 minimum to cash out earnings.
Twitter has added two monetization tools, Super Follows and Ticketed Spaces, in recent months. Super Follows, launched in September, gives users the option to charge followers to read certain subscriber-only tweets. Ticket Spaces, launched in October, allow users to run paid virtual events. Twitter also has a Tip Jar feature, which it introduced in May, which lets users add links to certain third-party payment services to their profiles.
The Creator Dashboard is currently only available to Twitter users on iOS who have more than 10,000 followers and participate in monetization tools.
Twitter competes with the likes of TikTok, Instagram and YouTube in attracting creators. Though Twitter is good at helping users build an audience, CFO Ned Segal said in a Twitter Space in mid-February that its users go to other services to actually make money. The issue, he said, stems from Twitter not being focused enough on creators.
