Twitter Blue will let you unsend tweets for $2.99 a month and is now available in the US

If you don’t see the feature yet, it probably hasn’t hit your device yet, but it’s coming.

Twitter Blue, the company’s take on a subscription service that brings increased functionality to the social platform, has been in testing for a couple of months now. Now, it’s rolling out in the US.

Announced earlier in the year before testing began in Canada and Australia, Twitter Blue is now available in the US and New Zealand, as well. It will set you back $2.99 a month, but with that subscription fee, you get access to a variety of features.

The biggest feature for many users is probably the Undo Tweet feature, which gives you a limited amount of time to stop a tweet from publishing. Perfect for when you notice that random typo after you hit Tweet.

In addition to the Undo Tweet feature, users will also get the option to upload longer videos, a bookmarks folder, and possibly the most exciting feature for some of us (including Kevin) is the Nuzzel replacement, called Top Articles.

Nuzzel, which is no longer for this world, gave you a convenient feed to see what the people you follow on Twitter were talking about. It also made viewing news sources easy and in many instances, it would remove ads, allowing you to read without distractions. Currently, Twitter is working with 300+ news outlets to provide an ad-free experience.

Twitter bought Scroll, which previously bought Nuzzel, and eventually killed off the features, promising that the core functionality would return. Now, it’s here, behind a Twitter Blue subscription.

We were hoping that a Twitter Blue subscription would include an ad-free experience within the Twitter feed, but sadly, it’s limited to reading news articles through Top Articles. Also, paywalled sites will stay behind their respective paywalls.

Twitter Blue is rolling out on Android, iOS, and desktop in the US and New Zealand. You can find the feature in your Settings.

Strangely, each one offers slightly different experiences. For example, Top Articles is currently only available on desktop and Android, but the iOS version is coming soon.
