Twitter Blue subscription with a blue check mark is now available for one year at a discount.
Twitter offered its users the option to pay for a Blue subscription a year in advance and get a small discount for it. For the year you will have to pay $ 84, that is, each month will cost $ 7 - a dollar cheaper than when paying monthly.
Similar discounts are available in all countries where Twitter Blue is officially active: in addition to the US, these are the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Until now, the subscription could only be paid monthly for $8 when calculated via the web interface or for $11 when calculated via iOS - the social network introduced this forced measure due to the 30% commission that Apple charges on all transactions in the App Store.
A Twitter Blue subscription comes with a number of perks, including a blue verification checkmark, prioritized comment ranking, the ability to upload videos up to 60 minutes long, tweet editing, app icon selection, tweet and navigation editing, bookmarking tweets, and more. When subscribing, you need to bind a phone number, and the service administration checks the account owner to make sure that he is not a scammer and is not trying to impersonate someone else.
