How to tip your favourite content creators on Youtube

Published

on

You’ll now be able to tip your favourite YouTubers

Youtube viewers will soon have a new way to support their favourite content creators, with the video platform adding a new tool that lets you tip creators.

It’s called “Super Thanks” and youtube says it is currently in the testing phase on the platform.

When a user purchases one of these four options, they’ll see a celebratory animation on-screen and a colourful comment with their name appear below the video in the comments section. Creators themselves will be able to respond to these messages in the same way they can on regular comments.

The feature lets users applaud a creator by choosing from one of four price points between $2 and $50 to tip their fave channels.

What happened to YouTube applause?

YouTube had previously been testing the tool under the name “Viewer Applause”, over the past year.

With its new name, it’s available in beta in 68 countries on desktop, Android, and iOS.

Another way for creators to earn a buck

Super Thanks is the fourth option YouTube has added for directly paying creators. 

YouTube also offers channel memberships, which let creators offer monthly subscriptions.

Along with that, there’s also Super Stickers and Super Chat – all of which let have allowed viewers to leave tips during live streams.

But, what’s the catch?

YouTube already pays eligible creators a cut of the ad revenue that runs in front of their videos, but that income stream isn’t always enough for content creators to earn a living.

One of the biggest catches to the new feature: Creators must be part of the YouTube Partner Program to receive access to Super Thanks.

elon musk twitter

Elon Musk’s Twitter deal is back on, and he says it’s the key to creating his much-anticipated ‘everything app’.

The billionaire entrepreneur had been in talks to take the social media platform private, but the deal fell through. However, after news of its reinstatement, Mr Musk said that buying Twitter is an essential part of his plans for X.

The idea behind X is a sort of super app, combining messaging, social media, payments-and lack of reliance on ad revenue, similar to the Chinese WeChat. That already has more than one billion users, but so far no equivalent exists in the West.

With Twitter under his belt, Musk believes he can make X a reality much sooner than originally planned. “It’s brought forward our X project by three to five years, but I could be wrong,” he said.

There are no further details on the X project at this time, but with Musk’s track record of visionary innovation, it’s sure to be something we’re all talking about in the near future.

Why does Elon Musk want to buy Twitter?

Elon Musk is known for his ambitious plans and big ideas, so it’s no surprise that he sees Twitter as a key piece of the puzzle for his next project, X.

The details of the deal have not been made public, but it is thought that Musk is paying a premium for Twitter.
