FAQs

 

How will I know if I’ve been accepted into the program?

Publishers will be notified by their partner manager of their acceptance and will see a new “Monetization” tab in Media Studio. The program's Terms of Use will be displayed the next time the publisher logs into studio.twitter.com. These terms are non-negotiable.

How and when do I get paid?

Twitter will pay publishers sixty (60) days after the last day of the calendar month in which earnings occur. For example, June earnings will be paid at the end of August. Payments are sent automatically and an email notification is sent to the contact name in the payment details.

Will you send me an invoice?

Invoices are not sent, but publishers receive an email when payments are issued. These emails include the publisher account ID, the earnings amount, and the invoice date. The earnings can also be found under the “Monetization” tab in Media Studio once they are processed.

How will I know my earnings information ahead of the payment window?

The publisher’s “estimated earnings” are shown in the analytics tab. They are displayed on a two-day delay. All figures are estimates, and there can be deltas between the estimates and the final payment amounts. Please see the partner terms for additional details.

Why do I have to enter in payment information for each handle? What if I want to get paid as an organization?

Each handle needs to be set up as its own payee. In Media Studio, publishers can assign an admin to the account, who can then use their own credentials to access that handle.

Why haven't I been paid yet?

There is a $100 USD (or your market’s equivalent) earnings threshold for processing payments. Once a publisher hits this threshold, the payments will be sent.

Who do I contact for payment questions?

If you have any questions regarding the status of any of your open payments, please contact us at contentpaymentsupport@twitter.com.

How do I monetize the videos?

During the video upload workflow, publishers will have the option to select the “Monetize video” checkbox to opt a video into the program.

Do I have to opt-in every video?

No, it’s the publisher’s choice as to what videos are opted into the program. This selection can be made on a video-by-video basis, or set as defaults in the account “Settings” area under “Monetization.”

Can I upload from my phone?

Yes, mobile videos can be uploaded and opted into the Amplify Publisher Program on both iOS and Android.

Can I block specific brands or categories from being paired with my videos?

Yes, publishers have the ability to block at both the individual handle level and the advertiser category level. Advertisers have the same ability to block publishers by handle or category.

Do I have to use Media Studio or the Twitter apps to opt-in video? Can I use a third party?

Yes, but it does depend on the service. Please reach out to your account representative to confirm that they have integrated with our API.
