Twitter lists new paid-for version in app store

Twitter has listed a new subscription service in online app stores, suggesting the social network could soon begin testing the new feature.

Twitter Blue will now show up as a possible in-app purchase when viewing the Twitter app in app stores. The service is listed for 2.49 euros, but doesn’t seem to be available in the Twitter app yet.

The subscription service, which has been widely rumored over the past few months, is said to offer special Twitter features to those who sign up, including a reading mode that makes it easier to read longer threads, and there have also been reports of an undo tool for tweets, This would allow users to withdraw tweets quickly.

Twitter has not yet commented on the in-app purchase list or confirmed plans for testing or a possible public launch of Twitter Blue.

According to technology blogger Jane Manchun Wong, who claims to have become the first tester of the new service, it includes an undo option, as well as new customizable app color schemes and the ability to customize the color of the Twitter app icon.

The social media platform has taken steps to diversify its business and the experiences available in the service.

Last month, Twitter released a Profile Tip Jar that allows users to send money to others on the platform to “get and show support” on the website.

The tool adds a new Tip Jar icon to a user’s profile and offers payment options to anyone who taps on it. Services like PayPal are already registered.

So far, content creators, journalists, experts and nonprofits were among the first groups to be granted access to the new tool.
