Twitter may have accidentally spilled the beans on its According to rumors, subscription service Twitter Blue thanks to an update on his App store list. As you can see in the screenshot below, “Twitter Blue” is now listed as the only in-app purchase from Twitter for $ 2.99 per month, although the feature doesn’t appear to be fully enabled yet.
The update was discovered first on Thursday by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, who reverse-engineered some of the details about Twitter’s upcoming subscription service and the exact $ 2.99 per month.

“I became the first Twitter Blue paid customer to test,” said Wong tweeted on Thursday.
A Twitter spokesman declined to comment on the matter.

Of course, I have to add the disclaimer that Twitter has not officially confirmed any of these details at this time. Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, said insider Last year it was in the “very, very early” stage of research into a subscription model, but the company remained calm about pricing or what specific features it might have. When Twitter acquired ScrollEarlier this month, a paid subscription service that removes ads on participating websites, it also announced plans for a private beta as it incorporates “a broader Twitter subscription later in the year”.
Technically, even the name “Twitter Blue” remains speculation, but this updated App Store list comes closest to the confirmation we’ve seen so far.
Did you sell any of these leaked features with the purchase of a subscription to the bird site? Let us know in the comments. Personally, I am not convinced. I’m pretty sure I could spend those three dollars a month on something that would be far more beneficial to my mental health, like this one little squishy boys. Or candy. Yes, no, sweets sound a lot better.
