Pricing, Restrictions, and New Annual Subscriptions

News Summary:

  • All features of Twitter Blue are out of the box, except for the blue check mark. A blue checkmark may take some time to appear to confirm that the subscription account verification has met all requirements. Previously, Twitter used blue checkmarks to indicate active, notable, and genuine public interest accounts independently verified by Twitter based on specific requirements. The blue tick marks have two different meanings: Either the account has been verified against previous verification criteria (active and genuine) or the account has an active subscription to Twitter Blue.

  • Elon Musk’s popular microblogging application, Twitter, has announced pricing for its Twitter Blue subscription for Android. The company has increased the price of its Blue service for his Android users, so individuals will have to pay $11 per month. The Twitter Blue Plan starts at $8/month or $84/year in the countries where it’s available and gets early access to features plus blue ticks. Twitter Blue is a paid opt-in subscription that adds a blue check mark to your account and gives you early access to some features like editing your Tweets.

“We are also testing a new service called Twitter Verification for Organizations, a service for businesses on Twitter that adds gold ticks to official business accounts,” the company said in a blog post. In addition to blue checkmarks, Twitter’s Blue feature allows subscribers to enhance and customize their Twitter experience. New Twitter Blue subscriptions are currently only available in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the UK via web, iOS or Android with plans to expand. Newly created Twitter accounts cannot subscribe to Twitter Blue for 90 days.
