Ever wondered if you can get a blue verified checkmark for your Twitter account for $7.99 a month? Surprisingly, Elon Musk’s Twitter Blue Tick is finally available for iPhones and iPads.
Since his acquisition, Musk has been talking about hypes about their new verification method and the concept of “Twitter Blue”. The feature is expected to come with a range of new features such as authentication, listings, search, and less bloatware.
For the users who request the Twitter Blue subscription, the new feature immediately adds the verified check next to the user’s display name. According to the reports, the Blue Tick verification will also only be offered to the Twitter accounts that have subscribed to the feature after November 9, 2022.
The sign-up form on iOS also states that the $7.99 per month subscription is a limited-time offer. It is only available on iOS and users can access it via the web or Android.
However, despite the Twitter Blue subscription offering the blue tick on the subscription, there will be distinguishing information about who got the blue tick through the subscription and who really has it because they’re famous, a government agency, or a celebrity.
Musk reported that the primary intention behind the introduction of the blue tick verification is to instill trust among users, but users have bombed Elon Musk and criticized the move. They also plan to remove accounts that personify other people. Such accounts will be permanently suspended.
What is Twitter Blue?
Twitter Blue is an opt-in, subscription-based service designed to enhance a user’s Twitter experience.
It is a paid, monthly subscription service that will add a blue check mark to the Twitter account and also provide a variety of easy access to the new features earlier than the other users.
The subscription service is currently only available to iOS users for $7.99 per month. Twitter Blue is also currently available in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. There is a good chance that it will be extended to other countries as well.
How to set up Twitter Blue?
Setting up the Twitter Blue subscription is quite simple. Here’s what to do:
- Go to the profile menu that appears in your iPhone menu
- From there select Twitter Blue
- Tap the “Subscribe for $/year” button
- You must then follow the on-screen instructions when they appear on the screen.
Once payment is completed, you are ready to go. It’s a pretty simple process and when you’re done, you’ll receive the blue tick verification in your Twitter account. If you set up a monthly subscription, the recurring amount may be charged to your linked account, so keep that in mind.
