Mentioning that a fee should be charged for the blue tick after purchasing Twitter, Elon Musk started a new era in the company. Twitter Blue membership system came to the fore with new features. Users who purchase paid memberships will be exempt from some restrictions.
Twitter Blue gets new features
The price of the Twitter Blue feature, which has been activated in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, has increased from $ 2.99 to $ 4.99 in the past months. The paid membership model, which offers users an ad-free Twitter experience, will come up with new features.
One of its most important features is to undo the tweet, Blue, which allows users to undo a tweet after sending it without being seen by others. Tweet undo, which is different from the edit tweet feature, was liked by many users.
Twitter, which has increased the character limit in Tweets from 140 to 280 in the past years, has started preparations to remove the character limit. It is estimated that this feature will only be available to Blue membership holders.
Another important feature we come across is the video length and quality. The company will increase the maximum video duration from 2 minutes 20 seconds to 42 minutes. However, users will be able to upload 1080p videos. It is worth noting that the quality of videos uploaded to Twitter today has dropped significantly.
Musk started working on a revenue model that allows users who produce original content to earn money. Although the details are not yet clear, content producers called bloggers will be able to earn income just like on the Medium platform.
