Twitter announced that it is increasing the price of Twitter Blue from $2.99 to $4.99 per month. Twitter Blue is a premium subscription service that gives users access to additional features, such as the ability to undo tweets, manage multiple timelines, and customize their Twitter experience.
The price increase will go into effect on May 1st for new and existing subscribers. Twitter has not said whether or not it will offer any discounts or promotions to offset the price increase. For those of you who use Twitter Blue, what do you think of the price increase? Do you think it’s justified, or do you think Twitter is taking advantage of its users?
Starting next month, Twitter Blue will be increasing its price from $2.99 to $4.99 per month. This price increase comes as Twitter looks to generate more revenue from its premium service. Twitter Blue offers users a number of features that are not available to free users, such as the ability to undo tweets and a custom color scheme. Twitter has also said that it plans to add more features to Twitter Blue in the future.
If you are a current Twitter Blue subscriber, you will be grandfathered in at the current price of $2.99 per month. However, if you cancel your subscription and re-subscribe at a later date, you will be charged the new price of $4.99 per month.
Apart from the U.S., the price hike is also applicable to other countries like Australia, Canada and New Zealand with new fees being 6.99 AUD (previously 4.49 AUD), 6.49 CAD (previously 3.49 CAD), and 6.49 NZD (previously 4.49 NZD).
