Twitter increases the blue price for iPhone App users to $11

News Summary:

  • Musk, which acquired Twitter in October, will launch a verified service on its microblogging site with different color checks for individuals, businesses, and governments. It’s a schedule. A failed initial launch led to a surge in users identifying themselves as celebrities on the platform and using stickers. Twitter, Apple, and Google, which own the Android operating system, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It includes a 30% commission charged to software developers for in-app purchases.

  • Twitter Inc will change the price of its Twitter Blue subscription products from $7.99 to $11 when paid via the iPhone app and from $7 to $11 when paid via the website. The move is likely a backlash against Apple Inc.’s 30% cut to all payments made by users through apps on the iOS operating system, the report said. The site’s lower prices are also likely to attract more users to the platform than signing up on an iPhone, the report said. There’s no word on whether the price will change on the Android platform as well.

Musk later met with Apple CEO Tim Cook at the company’s headquarters, after which he tweeted that the misconceptions about Apple’s removal of Twitter from the App Store were cleared.
