10 November 2021 0

UPDATE (November 10th, 2021):

Twitter Blue has been expanded to two more countries i.e. the United States and New Zealand. It is priced at $2.99 per month for American users. As far as features are concerned, these are exactly the same which means users can now "Undo tweet" if they end up having a typo or sent a tweet they did not want to. There is access to ad-free news articles from a wide range of publications. Lastly, there are app customization features like unique app icons, themes, and Bookmark folders.

Original (June 4th, 2021)

Twitter has made its first-ever paid subscription service called Blue official. It is a service meant to provide users with extra features in exchange for a fixed monthly fee. We have been hearing about it for the last few weeks and has now been released only in Canada and Australia for the time being.

There are currently three Twitter Blue features that you will get after subscribing. These include Bookmark Folders, Undo Tweet, and Reader Mode. The first feature will basically allow users to create dedicated folders for bookmarks. It will be helpful in organizing bookmarked tweets so that you can find the required one easily.

The Undo Tweet is a feature that lets you set a timer of up to 30 seconds. It will hold your tweet for the preset amount of time and then publish it for others to see. It is meant to help users check if the tweet is what they actually want to send. If there is something to change like correct a typo or tag the correct person, they will be able to do so without having to delete and re-tweet.

Reader Mode is aimed at making it convenient for users to go through long threads. It represents all the tweets of a single thread into a single page like reading an article. The team has further added extra benefits like customizable app icons, app themes, and dedicated customer support for paying subscribers.

Twitter Blue has been priced at $3.49 CAD per month for Canadian users and $4.49 AUD for Australian users. It will be expanded to other markers gradually in time.
