Twitter Blue subscription is now available: According to Twitter, verified legacy accounts that have not subscribed to Twitter Blue will lose their accounts as of April. This implies that those journalists, actors, and politicians who did not pay for the Blue Tick will soon lose it. Many users’ ambition was to get verified on the social networking platform.
But since Elon Musk took over the company, the Blue Tick has been more about profit than reputation. Formerly, only those who could disagree could receive the Blue Tick, but today anybody with money or who is prepared to pay money may be verified on Twitter.
DATE: Twitter to remove non-paying verified checkmarks
“On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue, “Twitter posted from its official handle.
Twitter has not yet made clear how it would handle accounts belonging to users who have been tagged as “notable” on the platform.
When he took charge, Musk has opposed granting the Blue Tick to famous people. He said in December that the verification badges will be eliminated because of “the corrupt and absurd manner in which they were distributed.”
Since then, when users touch on their checkmark, some of those who already had verified accounts before Elon Musk took control have noticed a pop-up. This is a legacy verified account, it says. That could or might not be noteworthy. Some users, however, receive the phrase “This account is verified because is noteworthy in government, news, entertainment, or another specified category.”
Before Musk’s involvement, Twitter used checkmarks to prove the legitimacy of specific individuals and organizations. These checkmarks were given out for free and indicated that the account was valid and not a fraudulent account. After much verification, the blue tick was granted.
Price for Twitter Blue subscription
However, today, verification does not mean the same and users can purchase a blue checkmark badge through the Twitter Blue subscription model. This subscription service costs $8 per month for web users, while iOS and Android signups will cost $11 per month due to app store costs. Additionally, Twitter offers other checkmark colors and badges for purchase to denote whether an account is a business or a government, among other designations.
According to Twitter, users who purchase a checkmark badge get access to subscriber-only features including less adverts on their timeline, conversational priority sorting, bookmark folders, and the capacity to compose lengthy tweets and undo previous tweets. To put it another way, users who purchase the Twitter Blue membership service and the corresponding badge may benefit from extra features and advantages not offered to standard users.
Twitter Blue subscription is now available worldwide
You no longer have to wonder whether or not the revived Twitter Blue subscription is available in your country. Twitter has confirmed that Blue is now available worldwide. Pay $8 per month ($11 if you sign up through the iOS app) and you’ll get the no-longer-that-special blue checkmark as well as 4,000-character tweets, higher ranking in replies, post editing and other perks.
Organizations, meanwhile, can pursue a more useful tick next to their names. Twitter has begun accepting applications for the grey checkmarks that verify government officials and organizations, not to mention their equivalents at multilateral institutions. As you might guess, the criteria is stricter. Applicants have to use either their government ID or a valid email address, and have to describe their positions and functions. Businesses can already apply for gold checkmarks.
A global rollout may be essential to boosting Blue’s popularity. According to a leak source, the paid option reportedly had just 180,000 subscribers in the US as of mid-January. CEO Elon Musk is said to want half of Twitter’s revenue to come from subscriptions, and that requires reaching a wide audience. Now, it’s less a question of availability and more whether enough users will consider the extra features worth the outlay.
