That’s why I’m excited to unveil our fourth Paid Digital Good — Super Thanks. This new feature gives creators yet another way to earn money while also allowing them to strengthen relationships with viewers.”
With the new feature, viewers can pay between USD 2 and USD 50 for s “Super Thanks” purchase, which will then be visible n the comment section- highlighted in a distinct color.
