For a long time, information has circulated on the network that Twitter plans to introduce a paid subscription system. In February 2021, this was officially announced. On May 15, the famous application researcher Jane Manchun Wong announced that the platform would soon release an advanced feature set for $ 2.99 per month. Today, May 28, Wong talked about the features provided to users with a paid subscription and shared screenshots with a visual demonstration of these capabilities. She noted that testing of the Twitter Blue subscription has already begun, but so far, there is no exact information about the release date to the general public.

For testing, I’ve become the first paying Twitter Blue customer 😅
Twitter Blue comes with Color Themes as well as custom App Icons

Apparently, the Twitter Blue subscription owners will choose one of several design themes – it will be possible to repaint the social network application in yellow, red, purple, orange, or green. Moreover, the user will be allowed to choose the version of the application icon that he likes the most – there are both solid colors and icons with different stripes. However, the paid subscription will not be limited to only cosmetic updates – the developers additionally provide several important functions that allow you to use the network with great comfort.
For example, a user can save published tweets to their bookmarks so that later they can quickly return to them or have quick access to information. They can cancel a published tweet or start reading mode. The last point will be especially convenient if the user wants to study a long correspondence or a whole discussion of any events in a comfortable format. There is currently no information on any other features, such as the ability to edit tweets.
