A better internet.
For everyone.

Scroll, now part of Twitter, is built for those people who believe that the internet can be better.

Getting off the darkest timeline

We asked ourselves: how would the internet have evolved if ads had never existed. How would a better internet work?

Illustration of a side-by-side comparison of a busy computer screen with lots of ad next to a clean, ad-free experience with Scroll.

  • It would be blazing fast, no ad technology slowing things down.
  • It would be clean, no clickbait links at the bottom of articles.
  • It would be private, no shadowy trackers selling your data.
  • It would encourage quality—paying for engagement, not clicks.

It sounded good. So we decided to build it.

How Scroll works

Scroll distributes your membership to sites you read based on their share of your engagement. Those sites make more money than they would from showing you ads and deliver you a faster, better experience. Every month, we’ll tell you where your membership went and which sites you supported.

Out of the total time you spend on Scroll sites, the percentage of your engaged time spent on a partner site is equal to the percentage of your membership distributed to that partner.

New sites are joining every month

You can see a list of sites in the network right now or request one that you’d love to see in Scroll. If you’re a site that wants to learn more about Scroll, check out our partner portal.

Behind the scenes

To make sure we work everywhere, Scroll directly integrates into sites rather than relying on a browser extension. When you visit a partner site, the site checks to see if you’re a Scroll member and knows not to load ads and trackers.

About your data

Scroll measures the engaged time spent with that site to calculate how much that site should earn each month. You can read about how we look after your personal data. We never sell your data.
