Twitter’s “Twitter Blue” subscription service has been unofficially confirmed by what appears to be an erroneous listing in the iOS App Store.
Twitter’s App Store listing now includes an in-app purchase for a Twitter Blue tier that costs $ 2.99 per month. Although the option does not appear to be active, researcher Jane Manchun Wong has been be able to subscribe and shared some information about the service via a tweet on Thursday.
According to Wong, Twitter Blue comes with color themes and custom app icons, while a reader mode is listed as coming soon. This last feature should be a UI tweak that makes it easier to read longer threads.
Wong previously discovered a “Cancel Tweet” option, which is actually a timer that gives users the option to cancel posting a tweet. A new “Collections” feature would allow users to save and organize tweets for later recall.
It is not clear if “Cancel Tweet” and “Collections” are currently active.
It’s unclear when Twitter plans to announce Twitter Blue, although the subscription service appears to be about to launch.
