Twitter announced its first paid subscription service on Thursday, giving users in Australia and Canada additional features like the ability to undo a tweet in exchange for a monthly fee.
A service called Twitter Blue will give users up to 30 seconds after publishing to change their mind in case they notice a typo or revisit a message, getting closer to the button. edits have been requested by many users. It will also give users the option to bookmark tweets and organize them into folders so they can be easily found again. And Twitter Blue will condense long topics into more readable paragraphs.
Twitter, which has expanded into paid content with the acquisition of subscription ad-blocking service Scroll and newsletter company Revue, said that the features included in Twitter Blue are based on user feedback.
“We’ve heard from Twitter users a lot, and we mean so many, so much, that we don’t always build robust features that meet their needs,” two Twitter product managers, Sara Beykpour and Smita Mittal Gupta, wrote in a blog post service announcement. They write that the new features are part of the company’s response to those complaints.
Twitter Blue will launch in Australia for a monthly fee of AU$4.49 and in Canada for AU$3.49. The service will add more features and perks in the coming months, Twitter said.
