The feature was then confirmed by Twitter to CNet. Wong meanwhile also showed briefly how the feature might work. The undo tweet feature is different from delete tweet. Undo will stop the tweet being sent out at all. It will also have a timer — in form of a progress bar — indicating to users how much time they have before they can undo the tweet. It’s not clear how much users will have to pay for this feature or will it be clubbed with other features for which users subscribe.
Twitter has revealed features called Super Follows and Communities, during a presentation for analysts and investors, claims a report by The Verge.
Starting with the Super Follows first, this feature will allow Twitter users to charge followers for access to exclusive content. “That could be bonus tweets, access to a community group, subscription to a newsletter, or a badge indicating your support” added the report.
As per the screenshot shared, Twitter showed an example where a user was charged $4.99 per month to receive a series of perks.
The second feature, called Communities, is a direct rival to Facebook Groups. These are aimed to connect people sharing similar interests.
