Twitter Blue has arrived on Android, and just like on iOS, it will cost you $11 a month to pay for a subscription through Google Play. The social networking website has updated its About Blue page to add Android pricing for all countries where the service is currently available, namely the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.
Prior to this, you would need to pay for a subscription via the web or an iOS device if you wanted to enjoy the benefits of Blue on an Android phone. Keep in mind, however, that paying through Google will cost you $3 more than paying through a web browser. By charging more when you pay through your device’s app store, Twitter is essentially passing on the tech giants’ 30 percent commission. If you don’t mind turning on a web browser to pay for Twitter Blue, you can get a one-year subscription for $84 per year, no matter what your phone’s operating system is. Is a newly released option that’s the same as paying $7 a month instead of $8.
A Twitter Blue subscription will put a blue check mark next to your name on the website and give you access to features not yet available to non-paying users. One of those features allows you to preview your tweet and gives you the option to “undo it” before it is posted to your timeline. You also get access to bookmark folders, themes, and custom app icons. goal ace TechCrunch Note, there’s no telling what Blue’s feature list will look like in the coming months – the company could very well add new perks or remove them in the future. However, the check mark is likely to remain one of the main selling points of the service, as Elon Musk formerly called Twitter’s “lords and peasants system for who has or hasn’t got a blue checkmark” as “bullshit.”
