Twitter unveils Twitter Blue in new locations for a seamless reading experience

Twitter Blue is now available in the United States and New Zealand across iOS, Android and web. Twitter Blue is available for a monthly price of US $2.99 / NZ$ 4.49 and with it, we’re bringing subscribers even more features, more content, and more ways to participate in the conversation.

On iOS and desktop, Twitter Blue members will enjoy a fast-loading, ad-free reading experience when they visit many of their favourite news sites available in the US from Twitter, such as The Washington Post, L.A. Times, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, Reuters, The Daily Beast, Rolling Stone, BuzzFeed, Insider and The Hollywood Reporter.

This is just the beginning for Ad-free Articles with much more ad-free content to come as we continue to build more partnerships, with more publishers, in more markets.

A portion of the revenue from Twitter Blue subscription fees goes directly to publishers within our network. The main goal is to help each publishing partner make 50% more per person than they would’ve made from serving ads to that person. A better experience for readers - and more support for the journalism they care about.

Designed with Nuzzel lovers in mind, subscribers can easily view the most-shared articles in their network over the last 24 hours, so they can immediately see what’s important in their community. This gives subscribers a new and complementary way of catching up on the latest on Twitter.

Subscribers can add more flair to their Twitter experience with exclusive app icons and colourful themes and Bookmark Folders. We are also introducing Custom Navigation3, which gives subscribers the ability to customize what appears in their navigation bar for quick access to the Twitter destinations they care about most.

With Undo Tweet, subscribers can preview and perfect Tweets before they are sent. Subscribers also have access to Reader, which turns long threads into an easier-to-read experience. They can also change the text size within Reader to tailor their experience even further.

Finally, subscribers get early access to features we’re testing — before anyone else! These features might eventually become available to the rest of Twitter, graduate to a feature of Twitter Blue, or sunset based on feedback we hear from subscribers.

They will change often, but for now, subscribers will be able to upload videos of up to 10-minutes (as opposed to the standard ~2 minutes for non-subscribers) via Longer Video Uploads and pin their favourite conversations to the top of their DM’s with Pinned Conversations.
