Twitter consult reveals a subscription options it’s eyeing, including an ‘Undo Send’ button

Earlier this month, Twitter told investors it’s deliberation a subscription indication as a means of generating additional income to support a business. Now we know what arrange of value-add facilities Twitter might be eyeing. In a new survey, a association asks users to weigh paid facilities like “undo send” (an choice to an revise button), as good as other ideas like tradition colors, a ability to tell longer and some-more high-def videos, support for form badges, automobile responses, additional “social listening” analytics and a ability to run code surveys about ads.

The consult asks users to name a options they felt were many or slightest critical to them.

Details of a consult were initial published to nothing other than Twitter itself by Twitter user @WFBrother. The commentary were afterwards amplified by sagacious amicable media consultant, Matt Navarra, who had also seen a survey.

A Twitter orator reliable a questions had come from a consult a association was using to weigh options for a membership model, as a consult describes.

The association declined to offer any serve comment, though remarkable a Q2 shareholder minute had minute a skeleton in this area:

“We are also in a early stages of exploring additional intensity income product opportunities to enrich [sic] a promotion business,” a minute had said. “These might embody subscriptions and other approaches, and nonetheless a scrutiny is really early and we do not design any income attributable to these opportunities in 2020, we might see tests or hear us speak some-more about them as a work progresses,” it noted.

Specifically, a consult asked users about a following options:

  • Undo Send: A 30-second window for we to recall/withdraw a twitter before anyone can see it. This has been something Twitter has suggested in a past could be a viable choice to an “Edit” symbol — something users have demanded for years. Instead of permitting sum edits to tweets, and a poignant engineering investment that would entail — users could instead fast repair a typo they speckled shortly after posting.
  • Custom Colors: In further to “Night Mode,” we could change a fonts and thesis tone of Twitter on your phone and computer. Background color, links, mentions, hashtags and icons would seem in whatever tone we choose.
  • Video Publishing: You could tell videos adult to 5x longer than stream default, with a many aloft limit fortitude (8192×8192)

  • Auto responses: Able to write and set a menu of automobile responses to use in replies. This would expected be some-more useful to brands that wanted to route patron inquiries to central channels.
  • Social listening: You can see review around your comment on Twitter, including sum volume, a people and businesses who are articulate many mostly and what they are saying. This, again, would mostly interest to brands.
  • Brand Surveys: You could be means to consult people about a ads we run to improved know if your ad was noted and if people are expected to buy a products or services featured. Twitter currently already runs identical ads, so this underline would be comparatively easy for it to implement.

The consult does not paint facilities Twitter will really hurl out as partial of any destiny membership model, of course. It’s usually a initial step to entertainment consumer feedback about what people trust is value profitable for.

Not on a survey? A genuine “edit” button, of course. That one only might never happen!
