The sources explained to the specialized technical website Engadget that this paid service will enable Twitter users to intensively follow certain accounts they target to always appear at the forefront of the news feed.
Twitter creators will have to apply for ‘Premium Follower’ status, manage who they can follow either as ‘Adults Only’ or ‘Reality TV’, and so on.
This way, tweets from that account will appear more intensely to those who will pay for them.
To get this feature, Twitter requires that the user be over 18 years old, have more than a thousand followers on his account, and publish more than 25 tweets within the last 30 days of sending the request.
Twitter officials refused to comment on these leaks, and confirmed that if any new service was launched, it would be announced officially.
