A better internet.
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?
- 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.
New sites are joining every month
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.
