Twitter on Thursday announced the subscription plans for Twitter Blue in India.
The users in India will have to pay to keep their Twitter Blue subscription active and use the additional features.
The social media site users in India would need to pay Rs 900 per month for the bluetick subscription.
Subscribers with verified phone numbers will automatically get a blue verified badge (tick mark) on their profile. Earlier, Twitter users had to separately apply for the verified badge. The badge lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic.
The subscribers will get several services like undo tweets, edit tweets, early access to some features, the ability to post longer and high-quality videos, along with prioritised rankings in chats.
“Ultimately our goal is to provide enough value through premium features that people feel that it is worth paying for. And we hope to offer fewer ads for Twitter Blue subscribers in the future,” Twitter said.
To enjoy the benefits, however, they will have to be on the platform for at least 90 days before the date of application.
Twitter also said that once a user has subscribed to Twitter Blue, changes to the profile photo, display name, or username will result in losing the blue checkmark until the account is validated. No further changes will be allowed during this review period.
