Elon Musk teases ‘larger priced’ Twitter Blue subscription with no adverts


Elon Musk says Twitter will roll out a brand new “larger priced” Blue subscription that doesn’t present adverts on the platform. The present $7.99 per thirty days Twitter Blue subscription guarantees 50 p.c fewer adverts when in comparison with “non-verified folks,” though this function hasn’t been rolled out but.

We nonetheless don’t understand how a lot the ad-free tier will value or when it’d launch, and Twitter now not has a communications workforce to contact. The present Blue subscription comes with perks like a blue “verified” checkmark, the flexibility to undo tweets, a method to add longer 1080p movies, a reader mode for threads, and prioritized rating in conversations.

This comes simply days after Twitter quietly put a ban on third-party shoppers, like Tweetbot and Twitterrific. On Thursday, the corporate up to date its developer settlement to notice that builders can’t use Twitter’s API to “create or try to create a substitute or comparable service or product to the Twitter Purposes.”

As my colleague Mitchell Clark factors out, whereas some builders pay to entry Twitter’s API, Twitter doesn’t present adverts by it, stopping the corporate from incomes any advert income. Plus, individuals who use third-party apps won’t see a have to buy a Twitter Blue subscription, as a few of them already provide an enhanced, (and typically ad-free) Twitter expertise.
