Handle Setup

Welcome to the Amplify Publisher Program!

Before you can start monetizing your videos, you’ll need to agree to the Amplify Publisher Program’s Terms of Use. These should come up the first time you click the “Account Info” option under “Monetization.” Please note, if you’re under 18, a parent or legal guardian needs to accept on your behalf.

Once the Terms of Use have been accepted, you’ll want to input account, payment, and tax details. You can start opting videos into the program at this point, but Twitter will not be able to pay you without these details.

Completing this step will require a few documents:

  • Contact details exactly as they appear on relevant bank records
  • Bank account information
  • Completed tax form
     

 

Note: To streamline your video publishing workflow, Twitter allows you to set defaults for both content tags and advertiser preferences. These options are located in “Settings” under the “Monetization” tab. Once defaults are in place, those settings will automatically pass through to newly uploaded videos. Please note that these will not apply to videos published through third parties.

Sharing Videos

Videos shared on Twitter can be opted in for monetization from studio.twitter.com on web, or natively via the Twitter app, on both iOS and Android. Here’s a quick how-to guide for each publishing path.

Note: If you’ve already set defaults for your @handle, those will pass through to this form automatically.

How-to steps on mobile

Note: You can also opt existing Twitter videos into the program from the Tweet details page. Under the video, you’ll again notice a “Monetize this video” option. Click that and follow the steps outlined above. This feature can also be used to disable monetization after a Tweet has been published.
