Twitter Blue, a paid subscription service, arrives in the US
After a year of rumors, waiting and confusion, Twitter has finally launched its monthly subscription service Blue in the US
The $2.99 premium service, which launched on the social media platform on Tuesday, offers more customization features, including "Undo tweets" and a mode to make reading lengthy tweets easier to understand.
"This is just the beginning of the journey, and were thinking about the future" of creating new features that "power users" want, Sara Beykpour, Twitter senior director of product management, said at a news conference on Monday.
Twitter tested Blue premium service in Canada and Australia in June as it continues to seek new revenue streams. Blue then arrived in the U.S. (and New Zealand, for $4.49 a month). Twitter does not disclose how many subscribers Blue has.
Last year, Twitter introduced some new features, including Spaces, a response to the popular audio chat tool Clubhouse; Tips lets users transfer money directly to their preferred accounts, while Fleet lets users share texts, photos and videos that disappear within 24 hours, similar to Snapchat.
"Were improving personalization, facilitating conversation, delivering relevant news, and finding new ways to help people get paid on Twitter," CEO Jack Dorsey said in a statement announcing the company third-quarter earnings on October 26. Twitter has an average of 211m daily users and revenue rose 37 percent from a year ago to $1.284bn.
"This is our biggest opportunity in terms of relevance and will drive everything from growth and usage to our advertising business," Mr. Dorsey said on some earnings call with analysts last month.
Jasmine Enberg, a senior analyst at eMarketer/Insider Intelligence, said that even as Twitter experimented with a variety of revenue streams, subscriptions remained the most promising one.
"Subscriptions fit well with Twitter use case, which is dominated by news and current events, and its highly engaged and powerful user base may appreciate features that help them more easily organize and track conversations," Enberg said. Twitter value proposition is different from other major social platforms, so a service like Twitter Blue might be harder to sell elsewhere.
