A few days ago there were rumors about Twitter Blue, a possible monthly subscription of $ 2.99 on Twitter, something that was new, because this social network has never charged for anything, except users and brands that wanted to display advertising.
However, now its existence has been confirmed thanks to the appearance of “Twitter Blue” in the iOS App Store, in the section dedicated to in-app purchases. With this, Jane Manchun Wong, the same researcher who already found clues of its existence in the code, has been able to learn more features. This differentiates it from fraudulent applications with which it should not be confused, such as WhatsApp Pink.
The extra features that Twitter Blue will bring, as seen in the App Store and in previous inspections, are the aforementioned collections to save tweets in folders, like browser favorites or bookmarks or Instagram saves, and the undo button.
Yes, undo, no editing tweets at the moment. This means that a poorly written tweet would have to be deleted in practice, for as long as the social network allows undoing the post.
Beyond these, Manchun Wong has also found interesting customization features, such as different color themes versus the traditional single theme in light blue, and the change of color to the icons that iOS has allowed for some time and for which third-party clients such as Twitterrific or Tweetbot have already bet.
Finally, something interesting is the existence of a ‘Reader Mode’ that promises that following threads will be much easier thanks to formaterarán with this task. Overall these are welcome features, but there is no mention of, for example, whether advertising will be removed. We will have to wait and see.
