For app users, the subscription would cost Rs. 900, and Rs. 650 for web users per month. If anybody chooses the yearly subscription, it would cost Rs. 6800 per year or Rs. 566 on average. This option is available for web users only and is billed annually.
Features and perks
Twitter Blue subscribers would enjoy early access to features such as undo tweets, ‘Edit Tweet’ button, prioritize rankings in conversations, post high-quality and longer videos. Twitter Blue subscribers would also see only half of the ads on their timelines that other normal users see.
Other exciting perks include the ability to set NFT profile pictures, set custom app icons, custom navigation options, themes, unlimited bookmarks, the option to bookmark folders, access to the Spaces tab, etc. The blue tick might not be available immediately when a person subscribes to Twitter Blue but all the other perks would be. However, every feature may not be available on all devices.
The service is already available in many countries like Australia, Canada, USA, New Zealand, the UK, etc. Elon Musk made an announcement that there would be changes in the size and frequency of advertisements on Twitter. He also has plans to introduce a premium subscription service that would remove all ads. Unfortunately, after Musk took over Twitter, it is struggling with losses. Hopefully, Twitter Blue could assist in generating some revenue.
