Twitter starts rolling out new paid subscription
“Starting today, we’re adding great new features to Twitter Blue,” says the update, only on iPhones for now. “Get Twitter Blue for $7.99 a month if you sign up now.”
In a tweet, the California-based company’s director of product development Esther Crawford specified that the new service had yet to go live.
“The new Blue isn’t live yet — the sprint to our launch continues but some folks may see us making updates because we are testing and pushing changes in real-time,” she posted.
“New Blue … coming soon!” she added.
On Friday, half of Twitter’s 7,500 employees were laid off by Tesla boss Musk.
He ordered the redesign of Twitter Blue as a priority, making some teams work day and night on it, reportedly with a target launch date of November 7 — a day before the US midterm elections.
