Twitter Blue: Is it worth the price of admission?

At least it's cheap!

You might have heard that there’s a new paid version of Twitter aptly called Twitter Blue. But what exactly does it come with?

First things first, if you’re concerned that Twitter will become a pay-only service, worry not. They have made it very clear that Twitter Blue is not replacing the regular Twitter experience. “A free Twitter is not going away, and never will,” said the company in a press release.

So, if you’re wondering whether it’s worth it for you to fork over the monthly subscription, here’s what you get:

Bookmark Folders: Want an easy way to better organize your saved content? Bookmark Folders let you organize the Tweets you’ve saved by letting you manage content so when you need it, you can find it easily and efficiently.

Undo Tweet: Typo? Forgot to tag someone? Preview and revise your Tweet before it goes live. With Undo Tweet, you can set a customizable timer of up to 30 seconds to click ‘Undo’ before the Tweet, reply, or thread you’ve sent posts to your timeline. Correct mistakes easily by previewing what your Tweet will look like before the world can see it.

Reader Mode: Reader Mode provides a more beautiful reading experience by getting rid of the noise. We are making it easier for you to keep up with long threads on Twitter by turning them into easy-to-read text, so you can read all the latest content seamlessly.

Along with these features, subscribers will also be able to read news articles ad-free and will get access to an assortment of custom app icons and themes.

All in all, it’s not the most robust service, however, with a monthly price of only $3.49, it’s relatively cheap. If Twitter is primarily where you consume your social media, it might be worth giving it a try for a month.
