What’s Twitter Blue I hear you ask? It’s Twitter’s first-ever subscription offering!
After a lot of people complaining about the lack of features, Twitter has finally listened and set up Twitter Blue. According to their latest announcement, they will be adding enhanced and complementary features to the already existing Twitter experience. For those wondering, no, free Twitter is not going anywhere.
As of 3rd June, Twitter Blue has been rolled out in Australia and Canada. This is to gain a deeper understanding of what their users want. Twitter wants to know what will make your experience more customised, more expressive and generally a lot better all round.
Sign up to Twitter Blue and you will gain access to the following features and perks:
Twitter has listened and made it easy for you to organise your saved content. Bookmark Folders allows you to organise the Tweets you’ve saved so you can find them easily and efficiently. Hallelujah!
A marketers dream! Other social media platforms already allow you to edit a post, but Twitter never had the option available. With Undo Tweet, you can set a timer up to 30 seconds to ‘Undo’ before your Tweet reaches your timeline. Now you can correct mistakes easily and quickly with this new feature.
Ever felt a bit lost on Twitter and never able to keep with the threads? Twitter’s new Reader Mode provides an impressive reading experience by getting rid of all the jargon. With this feature, they are making it easier to keep up with long threads by turning them into easy-to-read text.
As a Twitter Blue subscriber, you gain access to exclusive perks that regular Twitter users don’t have access to. One perk that has been requested for a while is a customisable app icon for your home screen. They have paired this along with new colour themes for the app as well.
Gain access to these features and perks for as little as $3.49 CAD or $4.49 AUD, around £2 GBP. Will you become a Twitter Blue subscriber?
