Last week in telecoms: Orange wants TDF, WarnerMedia and Discovery consider merger, Netflix shortens cinema window, Twitter plans Blue paid service

Twitter meanwhile is reportedly working on a paid service called Twitter Blue, to provide more financial stability, and Apple is preparing a big expansion in the advertising market.
