In February of this year, Twitter announced new features to generate revenue and help users make money on the platform. At that time, the company detailed some features like Twitter Communities, Super Follow, and Safe Mode.
Shortly thereafter, the platform began testing an undo feature as part of their upcoming paid subscription service. Earlier this month, Twitter revealed details for another new feature called Ticketed Spaces, which allows users with at least 1,000 followers to host Spaces with one ticket.
Now the company has finally listed its upcoming subscription service called Twitter Blue as an in-app purchase.
According to Jane Manchun Wong, the Twitter Blue subscription service costs users $ 2.99 per month and gives users access to some new features. Currently, the service includes two new features ̵1; color themes and custom app icons. The company plans to add a third feature called Reader Mode to the service soon.
The color theme features allow users to choose one of six available color themes, while the custom app icon feature has eight icon options. As can be seen in the screenshot below, the upcoming reading mode is helping users to easily follow threads “By turning them into easy-to-read text.”
