Social media handles nowadays are not merely just for spreading important information or for connecting with people. These platforms have now become a source of income for many digital creators. Users were already earning from YouTube and Instagram ( paid promotions) but now a third platform has come up with an opportunity for earning money.
X, earlier twitter has apparently started its Ads Revenue Sharing program in which it’s helping small content creators to earn money. Last year the CEO of X, Elon Musk introduced a paid verification model in which the users were required to pay $8 to get a blue tick.
A lot of users opted for this premium opportunity and some chose not to. Now recently, reports are that X is giving out payments to all the premium users if they meet the eligibility criteria. The premium users must have at least 500 followers and 15 million organic impressions on their cumulative posts in the last 3 months. The minimum payout for the creators is $50.
Here is a step by step procedure for earning revenues from X ( Twitter)
1. First and the foremost step is to get verified on Twitter by purchasing the premium account. After that you must have 500 followers with 15 million organic impressions.
2. Then you must have a Stripe Account. X has partnered with Stripe for processing the payments. After that you must adhere to Ads Revenue Share Terms, Creator Monetization standards and X rules.
3. Go to the Monetization section in your settings and access the Monetization through the side menu on iOS and Android in order to apply for the Creator Subscriptions and Ads Revenue Sharing.
4. All the eligible creators are welcomed to participate in this revenue program however breach of any Ads Revenue Share Terms may exclude you from the same.
5. When the eligible users will join and set up the payouts from the monetization section, they will have to click on “join and setup payouts”.
6. After this you’ll be redirected to Stripe on which you have to create an account to receive payments.
7. This Stripe account will be the platform for transferring funds to your external bank account.
8. Now you will receive your regular revenues provided that you’ve generated an income over $10 USD.
9. It is very important for the users to know that X can modify or cancel the program for various reasons if it deems necessary. So you must comply with the Ads Revenue terms and conditions.
