This paid feature will cost a monthly amount of $4.99 enabling the publisher to earn money from his followers. Twitter also announced a Facebook group-like feature called 'Communities'. With this feature, users can create groups about topics and people who have the same interest can join the group. Twitter has not released much information about this feature.

In addition to this, the company is also working on a 'Safety Mode' and 'Twitter Spaces'. The Safety Mode feature would block harmful tweets. As per a report, this feature once turned on would block and mute accounts that will insult, name-call or spread hatred messages. On the other hand, 'Twitter Spaces' will allow users to participate in audio conversations like Clubhouse. This feature is in private beta testing, which means it will be launched soon.
