Twitter unleashes Blue subscription plan for India at Rs 900 a month

HYDERABAD: Twitter's Blue subscription, which was earlier only available in a few countries, was officially launched in India on Thursday.

Twitter users in India can now pay Rs 900 per month for membership and obtain a blue tick on their Twitter profile. According to Twitter Blue, one of the most significant perks of membership is that subscribers with confirmed phone numbers would obtain a blue verified badge on their profile.

Twitter Blue is currently accessible in the United States, India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Indonesia, and Brazil.

Both iOS and Android users in India have access to membership. Twitter also offers users the option to subscribe to Twitter Blue through the website, although it currently appears to be inaccessible in India.

Until now, Twitter has used the blue checkmark to indicate active, noteworthy, and authentic accounts of public interest that Twitter has independently verified based on specified parameters. The blue checkmark might now indicate one of two things: that an account was confirmed using the prior verification criteria (active and authentic), or that the account has an active subscription to Twitter Blue.

Twitter is also evaluating a new service called Twitter Verification for Organizations, which adds a gold check mark to official corporate accounts on Twitter.

Twitter Blue includes a number of features

Edit Tweet: This highly requested feature gives you a 30 minute window to make a limited number of changes to published Tweets. Use it to make updates, tag someone, or reorder the media you attached. Edit Tweet currently only applies to original Tweets and quote Tweets.

Bookmark folders: Bookmark Folders let Twitter Blue subscribers group and organize Bookmarked Tweets into folders for faster discovery later. Twitter Blue allows you an unlimited number of bookmarks and Bookmark folders which are always private.

Custom app icons: With Custom App icons, you can change how your Twitter App icon displays on your phone. Choose from several colorful options. Check your settings regularly for new featured looks available for a limited time.

NFT Profile Pictures : We're adding NFTs as one of several ways to customize your Twitter profile so you can show off the NFTs you own in a hex-shaped profile picture on your Twitter account. After a temporary connection to your crypto wallet that allows you to set up an NFT as your profile picture, your digital asset displays in a special hexagon shape that identifies you as the owner of that NFT.

Themes : Twitter Blue Themes let you choose from colorful options for your app theme.

Custom navigation : This feature lets you choose what appears in your navigation bar, so you get quick access to the content and Twitter destinations you care about most. You can select at least 2 and up to 6 items to keep in your bottom navigation bar or restore to default if you change your mind.

Spaces tab : Twitter is testing a new interface within Spaces that gives easier access to audio content. The new Spaces Tab is a place to find podcasts, themed audio stations, recorded Spaces, and live Spaces. This feature test requires in-app language settings to display in English. It's currently only available to Twitter Blue subscribers on iOS and Android devices, and a select number of people globally.

Top Articles : Top Articles is a shortcut to the most-shared articles in your network. This feature automatically lists the most-shared articles from people you follow—and people they follow, too—so you can easily find the type of content you want to read.

Reader : Turn long threads into a more beautiful reading experience. We’ve designed Reader to let you enjoy your threads with less noise. Turn the Reader feature on when you tap the reader icon at the top of the thread, or use it to change your text size.

Undo Tweet : Undo Tweet gives you the option to retract a Tweet after you send it, but before it’s visible to others on Twitter. It’s not an edit* button, but a chance to preview and revise your Tweet before it’s posted for the world to see. Once the Undo period is over, the Tweet is viewable to your followers and you can either leave it or delete it, like you normally would on Twitter.

Prioritized rankings in conversations : This feature prioritizes your replies on Tweets that you interact with.

Longer video upload : Share more content with your followers. Twitter Blue subscribers can upload videos up to ~60 minutes long up to 2GB file size (1080p) (web only).

Longer Tweets : Want to Tweet more than 280 characters? Longer Tweets allow Blue subscribers to Tweet up to 4,000 characters. You can also compose longer Tweets in a Quote Tweet or reply. Standard functionality like posting media, creating polls, and using hashtags still apply. Everyone would be able to read longer Tweets, but only Blue subscribers can create them.
