Twitter has been working on its subscription service for a while now. Today, researcher Jane Manchun Wong said the service is going to be called Twitter Blue and, as for now, is priced at $2.99/month.

Twitter Blue will feature a new function called 'Collections' which will let users save and organize their favorite tweets into collections to easily find them later. Alongside this feature, Twitter will also bundle the 'Undo Tweet' function to its premium service.

This feature looks a lot like Gmail's "undo send" button. The app just waits a few seconds before actually sending the message, so this could be what Twitter is planning to launch. As Wong shows, the company is working on the ability to adjust the duration of the undo Tweet timer from 5 seconds to up to 30 seconds.

Alongside these two features, Twitter could bundle Scroll with Twitter Blue. Last week, the company announced it acquired the subscription platform for users who don't want to read content with ads but still support publishers to bring in more revenue than with traditional ads on a page.

Another paid-function from Twitter Blue could come from Revue, another service the company bough in January that helps people to publish newsletters on social media.

As for now, Twitter Blue is still in development and we can't say for sure when the company will launch its paid subscription service or even if it's going to cost $2.99/month when it launches.

Next week, Twitter is said to relaunch its Verification program, as also shown by researcher Jane Manchun Wong.
