Microblogging site Twitter announced Twitter Blue for its users in Australia and Canada for the monthly price of $4.49 AUD and $3.49 CAD respectively. The subscription model is available from today. It also added that Twitter free is not going away, and never will.

However, it does not offer blue tick option.

The company stated, “Our hope with this initial phase is to gain a deeper understanding of what will make your Twitter experience more customized, more expressive, and generally speaking more fire.”

It further stated that Twitter users blame the company for not always building power features that meet their needs. “Well, that’s about to change. We took this feedback to heart, and are developing and iterating upon a solution that will give the people who use Twitter the most what they are looking for: access to exclusive features and perks that will take their experience on Twitter to the next level.”

This subscription offering is simply meant to add enhanced and complementary features to the already existing Twitter experience for those who want it.

Twitter Blue subscription will get a set of features that include the following:

Bookmark Folders: Bookmark Folders let you organise the Tweets you have saved by letting manage content so when you need it, you can find it easily and efficiently.

Undo Tweet: Typo? Forgot to tag someone? Preview and revise your Tweet before it goes live. With Undo Tweet, you can set a customisable timer of up to 30 seconds to click ‘Undo’ before the Tweet, reply, or thread you’ve sent posts to your timeline. Correct mistakes easily by previewing what your Tweet will look like before the world can see it.

Reader Mode: It provides a more beautiful reading experience by getting rid of the noise. We are making it easier for you to keep up with long threads on Twitter by turning them into easy-to-read text so you can read all the latest content seamlessly.

Subscribers will also get access to perks, such as customisable app icons for their device’s home screen and fun color themes for their Twitter app, and will have access to dedicated subscription customer support.
