In May of last year, Twitter surprised by launching a new subscription model. we talk about excitement blue, premium access to some additional features for $2.99 per month. Although it seems that very soon the price will increase significantly.
Or this is what emerges from the message Matt Navara posted on Twitter, where we can see the message Twitter sent to customers in the United States informing them that its price has dropped. premium subscription is $4.99 per month.
Twitter Blue starts at $4.99/month
In this way and as you can see in the message leading these lines, Twitter Blue’s price rises significantly. What is not so clear is whether it is worth paying for this service.
Some features are very interesting, such as the ability to undo a tweet if there are typos, the customizable navigation bar, or the ability to access ad-free articles from different websites. But the truth is It doesn’t offer enough features to pay $4.99 per month.
In the statement they sent, they state that the rate has increased because “It helps us continue to build on some of the features you’ve requested, improve the features you already love, and continue our mission to support journalism.”. Although the reality is different.
Company blames Elon Musk for Twitter revenue drop in the second quarter of the year. Tesla’s boss and CEO wanted to buy the social network for $44,000 million, betting on an anonymous subscription model that would attract more than 100 million subscribers. But in the end, Musk decided to withdraw and caused an earthquake on the social network.
Regarding the price increase, say: The company has already implemented the new rate for subscribers accessing Twitter Blue, Users who already have an active premium subscription will have a grace period until October when they can decide to leave this service or pay $2.99 - $4.99 per month.
Let’s remember this Twitter Blue is currently available in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand., therefore this measure does not currently affect Spain. At least we already know this, but when this payment service comes to our country, it will have a price of 4.99 euros per month. Is it worth paying for the benefits it offers? Users will decide this, but the future of this service does not look very promising.
