Recently, Twitter has been adding a lot of features to its product. It started by launching a Clubhouse-like feature—Twitter Spaces. They also introduced a ‘Super Follow’ feature for users to subscribe to other people’s tweets. Another feature is Revue, the Twitter newsletter.
This feature will allow writers, experts, and creators to “share their written work, spark meaningful conversations and build a loyal following.” This makes a lot of sense as many Twitter users’ following usually centers around conversations. To add this feature, Twitter acquired Revue.
Revue is a service that makes it free and easy for anyone to start and publish editorial newsletters. It has now been integrated into the Twitter platform. This newsletter platform will help Twitter accelerate its work to help writers monetize their audience and content.
Due to this acquisition, Twitter has made Revue’s Pro features free for all accounts and lowered the paid newsletter fee to 5%. This rate is quite competitive and will let writers keep more of the revenue generated from subscriptions.
