Twitter Accidentally Confirms Subscription Service Using”Undo Tweet” Button

Jane Manchun Wong

It looks like Twitter is getting ready to start its rumored subscription service. App writer Jane Manchun Wong discovered and tested a $3 a month”Twitter Blue” in-app buy on Twitter’s App Store page, showing exclusive features like an undo Tweet button, a reader style for long threads, and much more.

On May 15th, Jane Manchun Wong reported that Twitter is operating on a service named Twitter Blue. Her reports were confirmed if Twitter added the subscription service to its App Store listing on May 27th. Wong somehow was able to subscribe to the service, that is not really available yet, and had the opportunity to dig around for a number of its attributes.

Along with the reverse button, Wong says that Twitter Blue will feature a reader style for extended threads and the ability to save tweets in Collections. Contrary to Twitter’s Bookmarks feature, Collections enables users organize their stored tweets into different folders.

Twitter Blue also comprises some exclusive customization options, such as a colored timeline and swappable Twitter app icons. Alas, the inclusion of those features in Twitter Blue means that they are not likely to find their way to regular users.

Social media platforms are trying to increase their revenue stream, due in part to the impact that Apple’s new privacy tools have about advertising dollars. Twitter lately told Bloomberg that it is working on new money-making characteristics and has since declared Super Follow and Tip Jar.

In other words, Twitter Blue won’t be the sole paid service to the Twitter platform. But we don’t understand when Twitter Blue will start or how Wong obtained access to the subscription at the first place. For breaking up info on Twitter Blue, follow Wong on Twitter.
