Report: “Twitter’s Subscription Product, Twitter Blue, Launches in the U.S., and Yes, It Lets You Undo Tweets”
From Nieman Lab:
On Tuesday, Twitter announced it’ll roll out a subscription product to lure super users into paying for features like an undo button, a news-aggregating “Top Stories” feature, and ad-free articles that will send a portion of revenue back to publishers.
After first gathering feedback in Australia and Canada, users in the United States and New Zealand can now subscribe to Twitter Blue for $2.99/month. (There’s no annual option yet, and Twitter doesn’t have a timeline for when users in the rest of the world will have access.) A handful of the new features build on technology offered by the news startup Scroll — which Twitter acquired in May — including a news aggregating feature similar to Nuzzel.
It’s not quite an edit button but Twitter is introducing an “undo” option that gives Twitter Blue subscribers 60 seconds to edit their tweet before it goes live.
