(Pocket-lint) – Twitter Blue has gone up $2 a month.
Twitter is not completely free. There is a version called Twitter Blue that launched last year in several countries that offers additional features for users willing to pay $2.99 per month. However, as reported by Matt Navara, Twitter is now telling its followers that Blue’s subscription price is increasing to $4.99 per month in the US. In an email to users, Twitter informs that the new price will allow continued development of some features that users want.
Keep in mind that Twitter’s premium tier still includes ads that appear in your feed, but you get access to a number of other features. A Blue subscription allows you to undo a tweet to fix typos, get a custom navigation bar, a roundup of top stories shared by the people you follow, access to ad-free articles from some news sites, a selection of various app icons, NFT hexagonal profile pictures , etc.
Twitter’s announcement makes no mention of billionaire Elon Musk, who is currently trying to get out of a $44 billion Twitter acquisition deal. Twitter effectively blamed it for the decline in Q2 revenue compared to the previous year.

Apple wasn’t the first to play music streaming, but its platform is very impressive.
The new Twitter Blue price is now in effect for new subscribers. However, early adopters will remain with the original price until October and can expect to receive a cancellation notice at least 30 days before the new price becomes official.
Twitter promises that new features will be available soon. Interestingly, editable tweets are on the agenda. This feature is currently in testing, so it wouldn’t be surprising if it becomes a Twitter Blue perk at launch.
