Twitter, the popular social media platform, has recently started removing blue verification ticks from users who have not subscribed to its Twitter Blue plan, which comes with a monthly subscription fee. This move comes after CEO Elon Musk warned users earlier that non-paying users would lose their verified blue badges starting April 20. In this blog, we will explore Twitter’s recent decision and discuss how much it will cost users to ‘verify’ their accounts now.
Twitter Blue Subscription Plan
Twitter Blue is a subscription plan introduced by Twitter that offers additional features and perks for a monthly fee. The plan is currently available at $7 per month for users who sign up via a web browser, and the price may vary in different regions. In India, for instance, Twitter Blue is priced at Rs 900 per month on iOS and Android devices.
With Twitter Blue, subscribers get access to features such as the ability to undo tweets, customize app icons, and use a reader mode for threads, among others. However, one of the most significant changes that came with Twitter Blue is the impact on the verification process.
Twitter Blue and the Removal of Blue Ticks
As part of the Twitter Blue subscription plan, Twitter has announced that it will be removing the blue verification ticks, also known as blue badges, from users who have not subscribed to Twitter Blue. This means that users who were previously verified but have not paid for the subscription plan will lose their blue tick status.
This move has sparked mixed reactions from Twitter users. While some users appreciate the additional features offered by Twitter Blue and are willing to pay for the subscription, others have expressed disappointment and frustration over the removal of their blue ticks without a paid subscription.
The Cost of Verification with Twitter Blue
With the introduction of Twitter Blue, the cost of verification on Twitter has changed. Previously, users could apply for verification for free by providing relevant information and proving their authenticity. However, with the implementation of Twitter Blue, users who want to regain their blue tick status or apply for verification for the first time will need to subscribe to the Twitter Blue plan and pay the monthly subscription fee.
It’s important to note that the verification process with Twitter Blue is not guaranteed, and subscribing to the plan does not automatically guarantee a blue tick. Users will still need to meet Twitter’s verification criteria and go through the standard verification process, which may include providing additional information, undergoing a review, and adhering to Twitter’s rules and policies.
Twitter’s recent decision to remove blue ticks from users who have not subscribed to the Twitter Blue plan has sparked discussions and reactions among Twitter users. With the introduction of the subscription plan, the cost of verification on Twitter has changed, and users who want to regain their blue tick status or apply for verification will need to subscribe to Twitter Blue and pay the monthly fee. It’s important for users to be aware of these changes and the updated verification process on Twitter. If you are interested in getting verified or regaining your blue tick status, make sure to familiarize yourself with Twitter’s verification criteria and guidelines, and consider the subscription cost of Twitter Blue.
