These rates have been listed in the Apple App Store, but for Android devices, although Twitter Blue has been described in the in-app purchases, no rates have been described.
Even as the update mentions Twitter Blue, the subscription model has not however kicked off. However, it is anticipated to be announced by the platform quickly.
While Twitter has remained silent on the update, Twitter Blue and the premium features it incorporates, it can be guessed that although the undo tweet feature would let customers to recall a tweet inside a stipulated time soon after posting it, the bookmark folder feature would let customers to make folders for the tweets they bookmark in order to make them more organised. This is probably to be comparable to the ‘save to collections’ feature that Instagram supplies. Meanwhile, the reader mode is meant to make it less difficult for customers to study extended threads.
That Twitter was working on the subscription model with premium features had been flagged by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong last month.
