Twitter Blue is a subscription that allows you to edit tweets and test new features. Signing up for Twitter Blue also unlocks Labs, so you can try out new features sooner. You can sign up for Twitter Blue on your smartphone or computer for $4.99 per month.

It’s become a meme for Twitter users to wonder how the website stayed free for so long. And while creating a Twitter account still costs nothing, the full Twitter experience isn’t so free anymore.

Twitter Blue is a premium subscription service that can enhance your Twitter experience in a number of ways. This is especially useful for users who use Twitter to find great articles or follow news.

Here are some of the most important features of Twitter Blue and a quick guide on how to sign up.

Note: Twitter Blue is available in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Features of Twitter Blue

Blue’s features make it easy to send tweets, as well as read them.

Edit tweets

If you have Twitter Blue, you can finally edit tweets. Tap the three dots in the upper right corner of the tweet and select Edit Tweet. When you’re done editing, select Update.

You can only edit a tweet a total of five times, and all edits must be made within 30 minutes of the original post time. A pencil icon will appear on your edited tweets, letting others see when and what you edited.

Note: You cannot edit retweets, replies, or polls.

Cancel tweets

Have you ever sent a perfect tweet, only to realize there’s a typo in the first word? Twitter Blue can help.

Each time you tap “Send” on a tweet, you’ll have a few seconds to undo the tweet and edit it before anyone can see it. The era of running around to hide your typos is over.

You will have time to review your tweet and undo it, if necessary. Twitter Find articles that interest you and read them without advertising

For many people, Twitter is the go-to place to read the news. Twitter Blue’s “Top Articles” feature tracks the articles your followers have shared the most over the past day and puts them at the top of your timeline. It’s a great way to catch up on the latest news without scrolling through hundreds of tweets.

You’ll also see how many times it’s been shared to your feed. Twitter

Additionally, iOS and desktop users can read articles from sites like The Washington Post, The Atlantic, and even Insider ad-free. And a portion of the money Twitter earns from each Twitter Blue subscription will go to supporting these publishers.

Important: Although this feature removes ads, it does not bypass paywalls. You will still need a separate account or subscription to read articles from some sites.

Test new features with Twitter Blue Labs

Sites like Twitter generally don’t roll out new changes without testing them first. You can be part of the testing process by heading to Blue’s Labs Twitter page.

On the Labs page, you’ll find new “experimental” features that Twitter plans to roll out for everyone. Any Blue subscriber can activate their account features and start using them immediately.

The features here will change regularly – as of now, you can experiment with pinning DMs to the top of your inbox and uploading videos up to 10 minutes long. And even if features appear on this page, there is no guarantee that they will ever be made public.
