Twitter Blue relaunched on December 12, bringing a blue checkmark for subscribers –

Ever since Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, took over Twitter, the microblogging site has been in the news for a number of reasons. Among them, Twitter Blue subscription has been one of the hottest topics. The Twitter Blue subscription launched last year and this year, Elon Musk made some changes to the paid plan.

Among the major changes, giving all paid subscribers a blue tick/check has been a moot topic of the season so far. The Twitter Blue subscription was halted a few years ago when the company was busy making some changes before releasing it to the public. Now, the company has some changes and features and prices announced for the same. Let’s take a look at the details here.

Twitter Blue relaunch on December 12

Twitter Blue will be relaunched on December 12, which is tomorrow. The subscription will cost US$8/month for web users and $11/month for iOS users. It’s also worth mentioning that Twitter didn’t explain why iOS users are being charged more for a Blue subscription. With this paid plan, Twitter will offer subscriber-only features.

The first and foremost thing that the subscription will offer is a blue check mark. However, you will need to verify your phone number to get this. The plan also includes other nifty features like Tweet editing option, 1080p video upload, and reader mode.

Going forward, Twitter will start to replace the “official” label with a gold checkmark for businesses, followed by a gray checkmark for government and multilateral accounts.

Twitter also confirmed that subscribers will be able to change their handle, display name or profile picture. However, if they do, they will temporarily lose the blue check mark until their account is reviewed again.

In addition to these aforementioned features, Twitter Blue will be getting more features in the coming weeks. Twitter has already confirmed three upcoming features for Blue users. First, tweets from verified accounts will be prioritized, which Twitter says will help combat scams and spam. Second, the Twitter Blue subscription will show fewer ads. Twitter says ad volume will be reduced by 50%. Finally, in the future, Twitter Blue users will be able to post longer videos.

Twitter blue subscription in India was indicated to be priced at Rs 719. However, we have to wait and see the new subscription price in the coming days.
