Somebody places money in their Tip Jar, or it’s long-form content that we cover in a different price point for a subscription, without ads, that complements it with other characteristics that come from us.
We would make certain that part of the value can go to the creator where those dollars go to them. Ned Segal, Twitter’s finance chief, stated we’re facilitating a deal on a conference call with analysts.
