How much are people willing to pay for new Twitter subscription features? Is it $2.99? According to Jane Manchun Wong, a software developer who’s gained a reputation for reverse-engineering applications to reveal upcoming services, Twitter is hoping it’s exactly $2.99.
Wong’s deep dive into the backend of Twitter suggests that a subscription tier called Twitter Blue will give paying users access to exclusive features, including better tools for organizing bookmarks and an “undo” button that makes it possible to recall tweets within a certain timeframe. Some of the alleged options appeared on a Twitter survey conducted in summer 2020, which asked users about which app features they’d be willing to pay for, if any.
Over the years there have been multiple rumors that Twitter was looking into a subscription service to generate more revenue, but the most significant sign that something was in the works came in early July 2020 when a posting for a senior full stack software engineer appeared on Twitter’s job site.News Source: Mashable
