Twitter relaunched its blue subscription service a month after a failed attempt
Twitter is a microblogging and social networking service that has rapidly gained worldwide popularity since its launch. As of 2018, Twitter had more than 321 million monthly active users.
As we all know by now, Elon Musk took control of Twitter in a $44 billion deal. Since he acquired ownership of Twitter on October 28th, Musk has been exploring several methods to eliminate fake accounts. One way to get rid of the fake accounts was to add Twitter Blue, where users could pay $8 per month to get a blue check mark on their profile.
Several weeks later, the Blue subscription service was put on hold as many accounts were taking advantage of the service and impersonating public figures and brands. A month has passed since Twitter paused the premium service, and the social media company has once again decided to launch the Twitter Blue subscription.
Twitter users can now get a blue checkmark on their accounts and also gain access to additional special features. Those who decide to subscribe to Twitter Blue will be allowed to post longer videos and also see fewer advertisements. Web users will be charged $8 a month for the service, while iPhone users will be charged $11 monthly.
