With this service, subscribers will be able to access several features that are not available for free users. Twitter has confirmed that Indian users have to pay Rs 900 per month to get a Twitter Blue subscription. However, this pricing is only for mobile users who access the Twitter app from either their iPhone or Android phones. The company is yet to mention the Twitter Blue pricing for the subscribers who uses the web version of the platform.

Some of the key Twitter Blue features are — edit tweet, undo tweet, custom app icons and more. The edit tweet feature allows users to make a limited number of changes to their published tweets within a 30-minute window. Whereas, the undo tweet tool offers users an option to withdraw a tweet after it has been posted.
