(Pocket-lint) – Twitter Blue is now $2 more expensive per month.
Twitter is not totally free. There is a version, called Twitter Blue, launched last year in several countries, which offers additional features for users willing to pay $2.99 per month. However, as reported Matt Navara, Twitter is now announcing to its followers Blue’s subscription price increases to $4.99 per month in the United States. In an email to users, Twitter says this new price will allow it to continue developing some of the features users want.
Keep in mind that Twitter’s premium tier still includes ads that appear in your feed, but you get access to a range of other features. Subscribing to Blue lets you undo a tweet to fix typos, get a customizable navigation bar, a roundup of top stories shared by people you follow, ad-free access articles from some news sites, choose from different app icons, NFT hexagon profile pictures, etc.
Twitter’s announcement did not mention billionaire Elon Musk, who is currently trying to get out of his deal to acquire Twitter for $44 billion. Twitter effectively blamed him for the decline in revenue in the second quarter compared to the previous year.

The new Twitter Blue price is already in effect for new subscribers. Early adopters will stay at the original price until October, however, and can expect to receive notice of cancellation at least 30 days before the new price is official.
Twitter promises that new features will be available soon. One wonders if editable tweets are on the agenda. This feature is currently in the testing phase, so it wouldn’t be surprising if it became a Twitter Blue perk when it launched.
