Last week, Twitter unveiled its plans to introduce a subscription-based model amid a sharp decline in its core advertising business, and now the company has begun mapping its users about potential features they want from a paid service, The edge reports.
After CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed that Twitter is exploring a subscription model, the company is conducting user surveys about the type of features they want to see in such a service.

As shared on Twitter by reporter Andrew Roth, Twitter considers a number of features as part of a paid subscription, including the ability to undo tweets immediately after they are sent, as well as the ability to post longer resolution and higher resolution videos.
Twitter asks survey participants to choose the most and least important of the suggested ideas.
Below is a list of possible features as suggested by Twitter̵
- An “undo send” window that lets you remember a tweet within 30 seconds, which sounds like Gmail’s “undo” button. It’s the closest thing to offering an edit button that Twitter has talked about yet.
- Custom colors for the Twitter app and website
- The ability to post longer resolution and higher resolution videos
- More advanced analysis
- Custom profile tags (an example is that journalists may have tags that note which publication they work for)
- Hermetic answers to choose from for faster answers
- Job Recruitment Features (to post jobs and connect with potential recruits)
- Custom stickers and hashtags
- Insights into other accounts (which can show all previous interactions with a user)
- “User roles”, which will make it easier for large organizations to access company accounts without having to share passwords directly
- Fewer or no ads at all
Twitter reported second-quarter advertising revenue of $ 562 million last month, down 23% from the same quarter a year ago.
