Twitter had previously confirmed the possibility of a paid subscription on its platform through its representatives. The subscription is expected to open access to more functions. Now application researcher Jane Manchun Wong has revealed some details regarding the future of the service.
According to reports, the paid subscription will be called Twitter Blue and will cost $ 2.99 per month. As expected, a paid subscription will open up access to additional features. We are currently aware that the function of canceling sending tweets; as well as the possibility of organizing tweets in a collection are in works. It is also possible that Twitter is working on a tiered subscription model, within which it will be possible to gain access to some other premium options. Officials on the social network declined to comment on the matter.
The possibility that Twitter will merge the new subscription with the recently acquired Scroll service cannot for overruled, which for $ 5 per month allows users to view content on partner sites without ads. Along with the purchase of Scroll, the social network announced the closure of Nuzzel, a Scroll service that emailed users daily reviews of top news stories from their Twitter feeds. Notably, former Scroll CEO Tony Haile, now in Twitter’s product development team, wrote on his account on the day of Scroll’s purchase that the service “will be integrating into Twitter subscriptions later this year”. This suggests that one of the premium subscription options for Twitter Blue will be the ability to view content without ads.
As at the time of writing, it is unknown when a paid subscription on the Twitter social network may become available to users of the platform.
