Twitter Blue monthly price increases 66% for new subscriptions; early subscriptions have the old price until October

Written by admin

Twitter Blue – the paid social media subscription where you can enjoy exclusive features such as the ability to undo a tweet just sent or choose themes for the app – is now getting a price increase, reports 9to5Mac. This is the first time the price has risen since the service was launched.

Twitter Blue gets a hefty 66% price increase

The subscription service was launched last June. And now, for the first time, the price is being increased – from $2.99 ​​per month, Twitter Blue now costs $4.99, which is a 66% price increase. This change will affect new subscribers who have not yet subscribed first, while people who have already subscribed to Twitter Blue will be able to enjoy the lower price until October of this year. Early Twitter Blue subscribers (basically those with an already active subscription) will receive another notification 30 days before the price increase takes effect.

The information, discovered by Matt Navara, comes from an email sent to Twitter Blue subscribers. In the email, the social media platform underlined that this price increase will help them continue to build some of the features people have been asking for, as well as support Twitter Blue’s mission to support journalism. In short, the increased price does not bring you any new features so far.

There are no other details as to why Twitter Blue is getting a price increase just a year after the service is officially launched.

Twitter Blue: Now what you get $4.99 a month

Let’s see what the current Twitter Blue features are.

First up, we have the long-awaited and most talked-about feature of the paid subscription: the “Undo Tweet” option. This feature allows Twitter Blue subscribers to preview and edit tweets before sending them. It basically gives you some time to make changes to your Tweet while it’s being sent. The Undo Tweet option is available on iOS, Android, and Twitter on the web.

In addition, subscribers get access to Reader, a view that turns long discussions in a Twitter conversation into an easier-to-read view. Reader also allows you to change the text size within the view, so you can enjoy the most comfortable tweet convo catching up experience. Again, this feature is available for iOS, Android, and Twitter.com.

Twitter Blue subscribers (on all platforms) can enjoy a Top Articles section in the app. This feature makes it easy to see the most shared articles in your network from the last 24 hours, so you can easily know what’s important in your Twitter community.

In addition, users are given the opportunity to enjoy ad-free articles. This feature is also due to the fact that a portion of Twitter Blue’s revenue is spent on supporting publishers and free press, and in this way Twitter’s publishing partners can earn more than they could earn from ad-supported articles. And, of course, the change improves the experience for readers, while also giving them the chance to support journalism.

On the other hand, Twitter Blue gives you more options to customize your experience. Bookmark folders and now custom app icons are available for Android and iOS. Custom Navigation lets you customize the navigation bar for quick access to the places on Twitter you’d visit most often. A (for now) reserved feature for iOS is Themes.

In short, as you can see, you get quite a few useful features. And now you get them for $4.99 a month.
