Twitter just announced its new paid Super Follows feature expected to launch later this year.

This upcoming feature gives influencers and artists the opportunity to monetize content and offer their audience something extra for their support — starting at $4.99 per month. These perks could range from additional tweets to a newsletter subscription to a badge, or access to a community group, another forthcoming feature on Twitter.

Various other platforms including Facebook and YouTube have launched similar subscription-based campaigns for creators. As streamers know, Twitch is largely based on subscriptions as well. Sites like Patreon and OnlyFans also thrive within this business model.

In addition, Twitter’s newly announced Communities bring together users, similarly to Facebook Groups. Communities can be created based on interests or fan bases, adding yet another layer to the Twittersphere.

Spaces are also coming to Twitter, in which users can converse in audio-based chat rooms.

Farrah and SENZA join forces on a collaborative new effort and mood, TEMPLE.

This trap-infused slapper starts off with a single sound, an intriguing tone that leads into the track’s rhythm and flow. The atmosphere only builds from there, as Farrah and SENZA add in layers of lush synths and gritty bass. Ultimately, the track drops into a buzzing, bouncy arrangement that never loses our interest — then pulls back, builds, and drops again — this time with alluring vocal chops to compliment the production.

Farrah is positioned as one of our Top 40 Artists to Watch for 2021 and “TEMPLE” marks the producer’s third release this year, following up “Clairvoyance” and “Boiling.” Meanwhile, SENZA is carving a path of her own with heavy-hitting mixes and originals, most recently “Full Moon.”

From the sounds of it, Farrah and SENZA are thriving a little more with every release.
