Twitter's rumored "Twitter Blue" subscription service has been unofficially confirmed through what appears to be an errant listing in the iOS App Store.

Twitter's App Store listing now includes an in-app purchase for a Twitter Blue tier that costs $2.99 per month. While the option does not appear to be live, researcher Jane Manchun Wong was able to subscribe and shared a bit of information about the service through a tweet Thursday.

According to Wong, Twitter Blue comes with color themes and custom app icons, while a reader mode is listed as coming soon. The latter feature is expected to be a UI tweak that facilitates perusal of longer threads.

Wong previously discovered an "Undo Tweet" option, which is effectively a timer that gives users a chance to cancel publication of a tweet. A new "Collections" feature will reportedly allow users to save and organize tweets for later recall.

It is unclear if "Undo Tweet" and "Collections" are currently active.

When Twitter plans to announce Twitter Blue is not known, though the subscription service seems close to launch.

    Will there also be a privacy opt-out. So that they don’t collect your data anymore? Otherwise, personally, I don’t see the point of this subscription.

    Huge nope.

    Exactly. But could we trust them?

    I suppose if you are dumb enough to care about Twitter you are dumb enough to pay to change the color of the icons.  Therefore, they’ll probably make a fortune on this.
