Twitter announced Tuesday that it will bring its subscription-based “Twitter Blue” feature to the United States.

The paid subscription adds premium features to the platform, including the ability to undo tweets before they post, early access to upcoming features and an ad-free article reader.

The subscription costs $2.99 a month and is targeted for large accounts, long term users and news junkies.

The feature was initially launched in Canada and Australia this past June.

Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to customize their in-app experience with themes, app icons and the option to personalize toolbars.

Among the other premium features available with Blue are a reader for Twitter threads and folders for bookmarks.

The introduction of Blue to the U.S. comes as Twitter adds new options to monetize presence on the platform.

The company officially launched Super Follows earlier this year, letting users offer monthly subscriptions to followers that gives them access to exclusive content.
