Twitter Blue sign-ups are back, for the “nth-who knows” time on iOS and the web. Twitter Blue subscribers will get access to subscriber-only features such as Edit Tweet, 1080p video uploads, and reader mode. Subscribers will also receive a blue checkmark after their accounts are reviewed to ensure they meet all requirements, including rules against impersonation. Accounts found to be breaking our rules may be suspended without a refund.
Twitter Blue is back. And gold checkmarks are here.
Twitter Blue is $8/month on the web and $11/month for those who sign up on iOS. Subscribers who sign up on one platform will have access on all supported platforms (iOS, Android, and web). Existing Blue subscribers will be able to upgrade, cancel, or auto-renew their subscription at the new price. Prices may vary by region.
Subscribing to Twitter’s Blue option is now available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
In addition to reviewing all accounts at sign-up, Twitter is taking several other steps to detect and prevent impersonation. Subscribers who change their profile information, including display name, profile photo, and username (@handle), will temporarily lose their blue checkmark until those changes are reviewed by Twitter.
Accounts created within the last 90 days, inactive accounts, accounts without a verified phone number, and accounts with recent changes to their profile information will not be able to subscribe to Twitter Blue at this time.
In addition to these changes, Twitter is replacing the “official” label with a gold checkmark on some business accounts. Soon, they plan to add a gray checkmark for government and multilateral accounts. Learn more about profile labels on Twitter here.
Remember, Subscriber-only features may be subject to change and some features are currently platform specific.
