The social network Twitter has announced the new version for the United States and New Zealand of its subscription model Twitter Blue. According to a statement, the paid version of the application will allow users to access special services at a price of USD $ 2.99 monthly.

Twitter Blue is a social network enhancement that focuses on tweeting and personalization, and removing ads from the app. The payment of a social network was possible this year thanks to Twitter Blue, a trial subscription that can currently be used on iPhone in Canada, Australia and the United States. This limited access is intended to reinforce the premium features of Twitter, a set of add-ons that allow you to get the most out of the app.

Before describing all the benefits currently available on Twitter Blue, It is important to emphasize that the social network has not yet removed the ads, so even if the subscription is paid, the advertising continues to appear, becoming a contradiction in the terms of any paid service.

Hopefully, after testing one of the pillars of Twitter Blue is that the application removes the ads.

Labs: Twitter Blue is a trial version that includes trial functionality. This is the purpose of the Labs section, and it currently allows you to set up conversations.

The chosen customization applies exclusively to the Twitter application for iOS, it does not apply to the Android application or the web. Apparently the appearance does not change much, but applies that personal touch that improves the usability experience to the previous “normal” Twitter. Please note that the core functionality does not offset the cost of the subscription.

– Undo tweets, star feature but not expected

Twitter has racked up a class action lawsuit almost since the social network’s inception: the ability to edit tweets. This, according to users, would dilute the spontaneity of messages, responses and threads.

“Undo tweet” is the name of Twitter Blue’s featured feature. In itself, This is nothing more than a customizable timer of up to sixty seconds that offers the possibility of rewriting the message and confirming it.

Doesn’t allow you to edit a tweet that has already been posted; although it is useful for those who comment without doing a second reading.
