Twitter may soon make TweetDeck exclusive to Twitter Blue as a paid feature. The company is reportedly working on a new version of Tweetdeck, which the company will integrate with its Twitter Blue service. Twitter Blue is currently priced at $2.99 (about Rs 226).
Reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong discovered an in-development sign up page for the service. In the screenshot shared by Wong, we can see that the company claims that Tweetdeck is “a powerful real-time tool for people living on Twitter.” The page also said that the service is an “ad-free experience”.

To recall, Wong had earlier claimed that the new TweetDeck would be bundled with the Twitter Blue subscription plan.

To recall, Twitter last year announced a major design overhaul for TweetDeck, later also introducing an advanced search feature to help users find content. New features introduced in TweetDeck include an improved composer, access to new column types, and more.
In other news, Twitter recently announced that it is testing a dedicated Cricket tab for the Explore page in India. The new tab is a standalone section where cricket fans will be able to get all the latest updates about their favorite matches, teams and players. It also introduced custom IPL team emoji in English and seven Indian languages to drive engagement.
