A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that Twitter could be working on a subscription service called Twitter Blue and that it could be priced at $3 a month. It looks like those rumors are starting to gain traction and might have even been confirmed by Twitter themselves, as noted by researcher Jane Manchun Wong.

According to Wong’s tweet, it seems that Twitter might have publicly confirmed the existence of the subscription program called “Twitter Blue” by including the in-app purchase on the iOS App Store where it will be priced at $3 a month, which is actually rather affordable. According to Wong, some of the features users can look forward to include color themes and different app icons for users to choose from.

This is in addition to previously reported features like the ability to undo a tweet, a bookmarks collection folder, a folder for users to save their favorite tweets to, and more. Twitter has been working on alternate ways of monetizing their platform beyond ads, and it seems that Twitter Blue could be one of those ways.

There was previously talk about a tipping feature that would let users tip people they follow, and another one that would allow users to create a paywall for their tweets that only paid subscribers could see.
