For some time, we have heard rumors about the news that the social network Twitter has been preparing to make it more interesting and allow the owner of an account to better interact with his followers.
At the start of the year, we have already informed ourselves about the new tool Birdwatching on Twitter, an initiative with which the social network aims to put an end to false information disseminated on its platform. Now, the novelty would be Twitter Blue as a payment service.
What is Twitter Blue?
Although Twitter has not released any statements to Twitter Blue, in recent days there have been leaked information and functions related to the launch of this payment service that would not take long to become reality.
It was application researcher Jane Manchun Wong who uncovered some details about the Twitter subscription model which would be called Twitter Blue and which would have a monthly cost.
Twitter is calling its upcoming subscription service “Twitter Blue,” priced at $ 2.99 / month at the moment, including paid features such as:

Wong also reveals some features associated with the service, such as being able to cancel tweets and being able to manage bookmark collections or bookmarks to categorize or sort tweets and be able to locate them later.
The “ Cancel Tweets ” feature has been in high demand among social network users, as it allows you to cancel the post before it is too late as well as correct certain aspects of the tweet without having to delete it completely. .
It is envisaged with the possibility that Twitter will allow to adjust the time of the “Cancel” button as it already occurs in the mail managers. In this way, by pressing the “Publish” button, a counter will appear, during which it will be possible to stop the tweet and correct it as we wish.
How much will Twitter Blue cost?
The subscription model would be phased, so that subscribers who pay more would get a much more premium experience with more options. However, the starting price in Wong’s words would be $ 2.99 per month.
In recent months, Twitter has also been involved in the development of The spaces (@TwitterSpaces), a new way to have live audio conversations that rivals ClubHouse directly.
In this interesting article we talk about whether these types of apps like ClubHouse are safe and what the service consists of.
What other news is coming to Twitter
Earlier this month, Twitter reported on the new feature of being able to send money as a tip to certain users, the feature called the “ Tip jar, ” with which it is possible that a user can tip. money to someone who shares their knowledge.
Users whose function is activated (a button identified by a ticket located next to the “Follow” button on the profile of the page) will be able to use it. This shows you a full list of available payment methods.
In May, we learned that Twitter was buying the Scroll Company, a tool through which advertisements can be removed from news sites in exchange for a paid subscription of $ 5 per month.
The money collected through the tool is distributed among the associated information portals, as compensation for advertising not shown to visitors. With the purchase of Scroll, Twitter also got Nuzzel, a tool that generates daily newsletters.
