We have been hearing recently about how TikTok is taking multiple efforts to lure more creators onto its platform. This announcement last week is part of that process, where they have announced a new program called Live Subscription. This is a monetization program that helps creators monetize their livestream on TikTok. This will include subscriber badges. It will include custom emotes and also subscriber-only chat. As of now, this feature is going to be invite-only, but they are saying they will eventually roll itout to a wider audience. TikTok wants to compete with YouTube when it comes to monetization. They have been going all out adding new features to their monetization programs
