Subscribers will also be able to see “the most-shared articles in their network over the last 24 hours”.

The subscribers will also be able to customise their Twitter experience with exclusive app icons, colourful themes and bookmark folders. With the new “Custom Navigation” feature, subscribers will also be able to choose what appears in the navigation bar for quick access.

While the edit tweet option is still not a reality but the Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to preview their tweets with the new “Undo Tweets” feature. Subscribers will have up to 60 seconds to preview and make changes to Tweet before it’s public. In addition to that, a new “Reader” feature will allow subscribers to change the font size and turn long threads into an “easier-to-read” experience. They will also get early access to new features as compared to other users.

Notably, the Twitter Blue service is not yet available in India. We have reached out to Twitter India regarding the same. We will update this copy as soon as we hear back.
