Twitter has officially confirmed that it’s exploring the idea of a paid subscription model, and now the company has started to survey users about potential features that might be added as part of a prospective paid service, via reporter Andrew Roth on Twitter.
Roth’s thread shows a variety of features that Twitter is apparently considering as part of a paid tier, including the option to quickly undo tweets immediately after they’ve been sent and the ability to post longer and higher-resolution videos. Surveyed users are asked to select the most and least important of the suggested ideas.
The full list of possible features includes:
-An “undo send” window that would allow you to recall a tweet within 30 seconds, which sounds similar to Gmail’s “undo” button. It’s the closest thing to offering an edit button that Twitter has talked about yet.
-Custom colors for the Twitter app and website
-The ability to post longer and higher-resolution videos
-More advanced analytics
-Custom profile badges (an example given is that journalists could have badges noting which publication they work for)
-Canned responses to select from for faster replies
-Job recruiting features (for posting jobs and connecting with potential recruits)
-Custom stickers and hashtags
-Insights into other accounts (which could show all of your past interactions with a user)
-“User roles,” which would make it easier for large organizations to grant access to company accounts without having to directly share passwords
-Fewer or no ads at all
Twitter also seems concerned about whether users would react badly to a paid tier that would wall off some features, with a portion of the survey dedicated to asking whether users are concerned that it would hurt Twitter’s standing as an open platform or tilt conversations in favor of paid users.
