Twitter's 'Blue' Subscription Service May Cost $2.99, Will Offer Undo Tweet Option

Twitter has been working on some kind of subscription service since last summer, and Jane Manchun Wong, who often digs into new features coming in apps, has shared details on just what Twitter is exploring.

Twitter Feature
Twitter's subscription service could be called Twitter Blue, and at the current time, it's priced at $2.99 per month. There will be a "Collections" section that allows users to save and organize their favorite tweets to make them easier to find at a later date.


It will also include an "Undo Tweets" feature, which will give customers a short time to "Undo" a tweet that has a mistake before it's actually posted on the social network. The Tweet Undo period looks to be customizable, so users can set their preferred interval.


Users will also be able to select where the Undo Tweet feature will be applied, with options that include original tweets, replies, tweetstorms, and quote tweets.

Wong says that Twitter is working on a tiered subscription pricing model, so one tier could have more paid features than another.


Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said last July that Twitter would set a "really high bar" for when Twitter would ask customers to "pay for aspects of Twitter."

There is no word on when Twitter's subscription functionality could roll out, nor what it will cost when it launches. Pricing and feature set could change because the subscription option is still in testing.

A big question is if Twitter will charge politicians for "Blue" features or just give them away. After all, TWTR doesn't have a great track record of applying its TOS and other rules to activists, celebrities, and politicians.

Honestly, this is the nail in my Twitter coffin. These subscription things are killing me. I get the benefits for Twitter and that’s great for them but that’s a hard nope. Hopefully some people find it worthwhile. Best of luck everyone.

I would actually not mind this especially if part of the package is weeding out the trolls and bots, and if they'd stop selling information to advertisers and blocking ads. A filter to only show tweets from subscribers could do the trick. Would be an interesting experiment at least. All the big accounts would obviously be subscribers, and it would also quickly make it unattractive to pay just to troll or spam.
So you'd be willing to pay for an echo chamber? Sounds fun.
