Twitter has been working on introducing a subscription service to monetize its microblogging platform and confirmed its plans for a subscription model in July of last year. While the company has been busy rolling out features like Twitter Spaces and Voice DM, a new leak claims that Twitter will call its subscription service ‘Twitter Blue’.

Now, you must ask yourself: how is the Collections feature different from the existing Bookmarks feature that you can now use to save Twitter threads? Instead of adding all your favorite tweets in one place, Collections will allow you to organize them as folders.. This is a useful feature if you often find yourself flagging tweets within Twitter. It doesn’t seem like you can filter or search these bookmarks just yet, but Twitter can add that functionality ahead of Twitter Blue’s launch.
When you get to the undo send button that was first seen in a Twitter poll, Twitter can let you choose where you can undo the tweet. For example, you can choose to keep the Undo send option enabled only for original tweets and replies, while disabling it for appointment tweets and threads. You will also have the option of set the period to undo the tweet up to 30 seconds.
So, will you consider getting a Twitter Blue subscription if the company launches you with these features for $ 2.99 a month? Share your opinion in the comments.
