Twitter has introduced a new monetization feature that shares a part of its ad revenue with top creators. However, there’s a catch. It’s available in only a limited number of countries. Here is a list of all countries where Twitter Monetization is present and how you can apply to get paid for your tweets.
Elon Musk initially discussed plans to help creators earn money on Twitter for their content earlier this year. Twitter has released the first cumulative sum of $5 million in payments to top creators. Many top accounts on the platform have received thousands of dollars, motivating others to create more content.
What Is The Twitter Ad Revenue Sharing Plan?
Twitter released a new monetization program for creators this week, sharing a part of its ad revenues with eligible users. The company will show ads in replies to users’ tweets and pay them for the engagement. You will start noticing sponsored posts appearing under tweets from top creators with the launch of this feature.
However, the exact methodology for how Twitter’s new ad revenue-sharing monetization will work is unknown. It’s unknown how much the company will keep for itself and what portion will be distributed to creators. Elon Musk previously promised that Twitter won’t keep any ad revenue for the first year.
Here are the countries where users are eligible for Twitter Ad Revenue-Sharing Monetization:
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- Indonesia (Invite only)
- New Zealand
- RO Romania
- United Arab Emirates
- United Kingdom
- United States
The good thing is that the monetization feature is available in almost all major regions. It should be available soon in regions where it isn’t available yet. Twitter might partner with other local payment processing companies for that. We’ll keep you posted when that happens.
Twitter Monetization Eligibility & Requirements:
Twitter’s new Monetization feature is currently available only to a few creators. However, it will extend to more users eligible to receive payments later. There is a certain set of minimum requirements that you must meet to be a part of the new Twitter monetization program.
How To Apply For Twitter Monetization?
Twitter has selected a few top creators for its new monetization feature and distributed $5 million. The program to earn money from the engagement of your tweets will extend to more users very soon. However, the applications are not open right now.
When the applications open, you have to go to the Settings dashboard of your Twitter account and then visit the Monetization section to apply. Find the new feature there, go through its details, and apply for the same if you believe you are eligible. Your profile will be lined up for a human review after that.
When you pass the human review, Twitter will start showing sponsored posts under your tweets (amidst replies), and you will earn money for that. However, the exact method to calculate your earnings is unknown now.
