Twitter has launched ‘Twitter Blue,’ its first-ever monthly subscription-based exclusive service. The new service has a few straightforward yet interesting features. At the moment, ‘Twitter Blue’ is only available to users from two countries: Australia and Canada. Based on user input, Twitter will make the service available to all users. If you’re worried about the free version being phased out, don’t be. Twitter has said firmly that the free Twitter version will not be discontinued at any time. Twitter Blue focuses on improving the user experience and providing more personalization options. We’ve got the first-hand experience with Twitter Blue, and here are some of the things you can expect.
Twitter already has a feature called ‘Bookmarks.’ People who use ‘Bookmarks’ frequently complain about a common annoyance. When a user bookmarks a large number of tweets, the system becomes clogged, and finding prior bookmarked tweets is difficult. Twitter Blue has released a new feature called “Bookmark Folders” to address this deficiency. With ‘Bookmark Folders,’ a user may organize tweets into folders based on common subheadings like movies and literature. The folder structure is more ordered, allowing the user to better manage content.
‘Undo Tweet’ is not the same as ‘Edit Tweet.’ The main distinction is that ‘Undo Tweet’ allows you to recall the tweet before it is posted to your timeline. There is no way to edit it once it has been posted. So, how exactly does an ‘Undo Tweet’ function? Here’s the solution.
Twitter Blue subscribers can set a timer of up to 30 seconds. If the timer isn’t manually set, Twitter uses 30 seconds as the default value. When you click the ‘Tweet’ button, the tweet is not immediately posted to your timeline. Instead, the tweet will be delayed for the number of seconds specified in the timer before being posted. If you realize something is wrong with your tweet and feel the need to recall it, you can do so within the timer period. The tweet will be sent after the timer expires, and you will not be able to undo it. The ‘Undo Tweet’ feature is currently unavailable to desktop users.
Twitter threads are frequently used to share long-form information that cannot be summarised in 140 characters or less. Twitter users frequently struggle to find the exact follow-up tweet of a thread, and a user must open each tweet one by one to read a series of tweets conveying cohesive information. Threads can now be accessed more easily thanks to Twitter Blue Reader view beautifully organizes tweets into a thread and allows you to read the collection of tweets like a small blog without interruptions. This feature is expected to encourage Twitter content creators to experiment with long-form options.
Twitter Blue members will be able to choose from a variety of new colorful themes. In addition, the app icon can be modified if a user wants to offer Twitter a different look on his home screen. Twitter intends to introduce a few more intriguing customization choices to provide a better user experience. Twitter has also established a specialized customer service team to assist paying users.
The qualities listed above are the most notable aspects of Twitter Blue that have been observed thus far. There are a few more details about Twitter Blue that you should be aware of.
