If you’re a social media manager or a real Twitter fan, you’ve probably used TweetDeck to keep track of your Twitter accounts online.
TweetDeck was an independent app at first, but Twitter bought it later and redesigned its website last year. When Twitter first came out, it was free.
The company wants to make the tool more money by making it a paid feature for users. Let’s get into the specifics below.
TweetDeck may become a paid feature soon.
Jane Manchun Wong, a well-known reverse engineer, told The Verge that Twitter might soon add TweetDeck to its paid subscription service, Twitter Blue.
Wong found a work-in-progress sign-up page for TweetDeck earlier this month. When non-Blue Twitter users tried to sign up for TweetDeck, the sign-up page sent them to the Twitter Blue sign-up page instead. It’s right here.
“Twitter says that TweetDeck is a powerful tool for people who live on Twitter.” This is a new sign-up page that has been found. That’s not all: The company also talks about the “ad-free experience” the tool has and how it can help people.
Now, it is essential to point out that TweetDeck is already ad-free. Even though Twitter is putting ads on this new version of its service, it looks like all users could get it. Soon, the ad-free version will become a paid service.
Probably, it will be part of the service that costs $2.99 a month. It was previously thought that Tweetdeck might become a paid service soon.
Besides that, Wong also says that Twitter is rebuilding the whole thing with “parts from the new Twitter web app.” However, she also found a link to the older version, which might be free, but it might not be in the future.
Although this move could be good for Twitter, it is hard to see how it could work out.
There are ads on Twitter Blue, but there aren’t any on TweetDeck, which is better. When you put two things together, you don’t know how it will work yet. Twitter Blue can be ad-free if TweetDeck is included.
This can help Twitter make money and give users a better experience with Twitter Blue, so it’s a good idea.
As long as we don’t have any official information, it’s best to wait and see what Twitter does.
