Twitter is working on a paid tier for their service called Twitter Blue. Uncovered by reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, the paid users will have special features reserved just for them.
Now Jane has become the first paid Twitter Blue user by enabling the in-app purchase in the app, revealing a few more of the special paid features.
We already know Twitter Blue will offer a clutter-free news reading experience, possible courtesy of recent acquisition Tryscroll.
It will also offer a bookmarking experience with folders and an Undo Send feature Twitter is working on.
Twitter confirms “Twitter Blue”, which costs $2.99 per month by publicly including such In-App Purchase on the App Store
For testing, I’ve become the first paying Twitter Blue customer ?
