Twitter Blue price in India
An earlier report stated that the cost of a Twitter Blue subscription for iOS users would be Rs 999; the cost for Android users has not yet been disclosed. It also mentioned that the cost of the web service would be USD 7 (roughly Rs 575), but there has been no official announcement regarding that.
According to Musk’s previous statement, the platform will get rid of all legacy blue checkmarks “in a few months”. He has said in a tweet that they were awarded blue checkmarks “in a corrupt way”.
Until now, Twitter used the blue checkmark to denote noteworthy, active, and genuine accounts of interest to the general public. The blue checkmark now denotes one of two things: either that a Twitter account has an active subscription to Twitter Blue or that the account was verified using the previous verification criteria (active and authentic).
