Salvador Rodriguez at CNBC:
Twitter announced on Thursday the launch of Twitter Blue, the company’s first subscription service designed for power users willing to pay a monthly fee for exclusive features.
It’s hard to imagine anybody paying for this service.
I’d like an easier way for other people to read my threads, and an easier way for me to compose threads — not an easier way for me to to read other people’s threads, which is what they’re offering here. I’m essentially looking to blow past the 280-character limit. I’d pay for that.
I might also pay for an ad-free version.
And I know many people are clamoring for a way to edit tweets.
But that’s not what Twitter is offering. Instead, they’re offering this and a weather service, as though there wasn’t already a million weather apps.
