Twitter previously said that it could be rolling out a subscription service to compensate for declining ad sales.

Now some details of what this paid membership may include have emerged highlighting a range of advanced tools.

A tweet by social media correspondent Matt Navarra shows a survey by the microblogging site to gauge which features users could be most interested in.

This could include badges that users can add to their profile to include business links. For example, a journalist could show which magazine they write for by adding a badge.

Other options include auto responses to reply to users’ general queries.

An undo send option which provides a 30-second window to recall a tweet may be a particularly enticing option for many avid Twitter users.

Custom themes, fonts, colours and even a night mode are being assessed as is video publishing which would let users publish videos that are 5x longer than the current default.

Social listening is another option, which would include total volume, people and businesses that are talking about a specific Twitter account.

Brand surveys could also be added to understand which ads are more memorable and if people are more likely to buy products or services that were features.

Fans of stickers will be more likely to hope for custom sticker additions.

Other suggested features include recruiting for open positions on Twitter, more educational features, and defining user roles for Twitter company accounts.
