Youtube Super Thanks: YouTube has just provided another way to earn money. Here is what it is all about.

Youtube Super Thanks: YouTube has rolled out a new feature for content creators on its platform that gives them another avenue to earn money from the video-sharing platform. The new YouTube feature is called Super Thanks and it enables fans and followers of a YouTube channel to show their support by purchasing something called 'Super Thanks'. Notably, this is the fourth revenue stream that YouTube has introduced for content creators on its platform. It joins three others, which include Super Chats that were launched back in 2017, Channel Memberships that were launched in 2018 and Super Stickers that were launched in 2019.
