A much-awaited Twitter blue tick subscription feature is now accessible to all its users in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Twitter Blue costs $8/month on web, and $11/month on iOS.
The company also made it clear that the subscribers who signed up for Twitter Blue on one platform will have access to it all supported platforms (iOS, Android, and web).
Twitter Blue subscribers will receive a blue checkmark next to their usernames only after their accounts have been reviewed to ensure they comply with all requirements, including the rules against impersonation. Any account found to be in violation of the rules may be suspended without a refund. In addition to getting a blue checkmark, Twitter Blue subscribers will also get access to a number of extremely useful premium features. Verified Twitter users will be able to use Edit Tweet, Undo Tweet, 1080p video uploads, and reader mode.
The existing Twitter Blue verified accounts will also be subject to the monthly charges of $8 and $11, respectively, on web and iOS. They will be able to to upgrade, cancel, or auto-renew their Blue Tick subscription at the new price. Prices may vary by region.
Watch, Twitter is reviewing your account

Subscribers who change their profile information, such as display name, profile photo, and username (@handle), will temporarily lose their blue checkmark until Twitter reviews these changes.
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.
