Twitter Blue subscription service launches in Australia and Canada

Twitter is launching its new subscription service, Twitter Blue, in Australia and Canada on Thursday. The paid-for extra service will add features such as an "Undo tweet" button, bookmarks, and a reader mode, Twitter said. "We've heard from the people that use Twitter a lot, and we mean a lot, that we don't always build power features that meet their needs," the company said in a statement. Twitter said the new subscription was not designed to undermine the free experience, but to offer "Enhanced and complementary" features "For those who want it". No date has been announced for other countries, but previous listings in mobile app stores have suggested it will eventually cost $2.99 in the US and £2.49 in the UK. Twitter said subscribers will get "Perks" - giving examples such as customisable app icons for phone home screens and what it calls "Fun colour themes" for the app.
