An even more expensive Twitter Blue subscription tier may be headed our way, according to a Saturday tweet from CEO Elon Musk(Opens in a new window). Musk claims, he and his already thin operating crew are working on plans to introduce a "higher priced" subscription for Twitter Blue users that allows "zero ads."
Axar.az reports the full details of this new Twitter Blue tier are largely unknown, as the only information about the tier comes directly from Musk's tweet. Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Mashable. In theory, Musk is serious about an ad-free tier coming to Twitter, but Musk also stated in court this week(Opens in a new window) that just because he tweets something, it "does not mean people believe it or will act accordingly." So, who knows if we should believe him or not?
As it stands for Twitter Blue users now, the current $7.99 per month subscription promises 50 percent fewer ads, a feature that has yet to be rolled out. Features that do exist, however, include a blue "verified" checkmark, the ability to edit and undo tweets, a reader mode for long threads, and prioritized ranking in conversations. Other promised features coming to the platform include "Coins" to reward creators (à la TikTok) and the ability to make the polarizing view counts feature optional.
