Question

Twitter just launched a paid subscription: Twitter Blue. Think you'll pay for it?

Twitter's new Twitter Blue feature will let you make bookmark folders to organize your favorite saved Tweets, undo Tweets to edit without having to delete a Tweet, and a Reader mode to read threads together ... and more.

Think that's worth $3.49 CAD or $4.49 AUD (the two markets it's launched in so far)?

Heck no. And they left out the one killer thing that might make me consider paying...ability to DM certain people (if that person opts into it). The only business value Twitter has for me right now is access to people I can't ordinarily reach or who wouldn't read a cold email. The actual content on Twitter is (how can I say this nicely) not valuable to me.

That being said, with my consumer hat on, I do enjoy reading weird Celtics Twitter while I'm watching a game. But not enough to pay for the privilege.

Interesting, that'd be a bit like LinkedIn InMail, then.

I honestly think Twitter's Premium APIs to get faster/more detailed search seem far more valuable from a business perspective than anything Twitter Blue is offering today.

Yes, I didn't even consider that angle...the API access is super valuable!

Y'know... I'd actually consider it. Those are 3 of my biggest issues using Twitter. I can see power users being pretty keen on it

Also I just learned there's no edit or delete on Capiche :|

Part of me does think it's strange that these features weren't just included in normal Twitter tho

I'm not the right target market β€” so no. Similar to streaming services like Hulu though β€” I might pay for a Twitter account that didn't show me any ads. πŸ₯΄
