The paid service will come with an ability to edit tweets within a time period

Twitter on Thursday, June 3, launched its first-ever subscription service Twitter Blue in Australia and Canada for iOS users. 

The paid service will provide features and perks such as folders for bookmarked tweets; an “Undo Tweet” feature that delays the posting of a tweet for up to 30 seconds in case the user wants to edit or delete; and a “Reader Mode” that turns tweets “into easy-to-read text so you can read all the latest content seamlessly.”

The service is priced at $3.49 CAD ($2.88 USD) or $4.49 AUD ($3.44 USD). The company hasn’t announced plans when the service might launch in other territories. – Rappler.com
