Elon Musk had first stated that the subscription fee would be $8 per month, but the relaunch includes an additional $3 fee for iPhone users.
Twitter claims that iPhone users would pay more as a result of the additional fees Apple put on Twitter on its iOS platform.
Android, on the other hand, doesn’t charge extra for the app. Twitter pointed out that iPhone users who subscribe via the web will still be able to pay the standard $8 subscription fee.
Information on Apple’s 30% tax: Apple’s 30% cut of app income for iOS, the company’s operating system for iPhones and iPads, is reflected in the additional fee for iPhone customers. Musk started criticizing Apple late last month over its commissions on platform sales and claimed that the company had threatened to ban Twitter from its App Store.
Following a meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, Musk eventually withdrew those criticisms.
Concerning the subscription: Announcing the relaunch, Twitter stated:
“We’re relaunching @TwitterBlue on Monday – subscribe on the web for $8/month or on iOS for $11/month to get access to subscriber-only features, including the blue checkmark.
“When you subscribe you’ll get Edit Tweet, 1080p video uploads, reader mode, and a blue checkmark (after your account has been reviewed).
“We’ll begin replacing that “official” label with a gold checkmark for businesses, and later in the week a grey checkmark for government and multilateral accounts.
“Subscribers will be able to change their handle, display name, or profile photo, but if they do they’ll temporarily lose the blue checkmark until their account is reviewed again.”
Twitter, a microblogging platform, has relaunched Twitter Blue, its subscription-based service, which offers customers a verification badge and other perks.
Additionally, Twitter stated that tweets from its Blue subscribers would receive higher priority, despite the fact that they would see 50% fewer adverts than unverified users.
