Twitter Blue is now available on Android
Twitter, the popular social media platform, recently launched an annual subscription service called Twitter Blue. The subscription plan, initially only available to users on iOS devices, has now been extended to Android users as well. However, individuals who purchase the Twitter Blue plan through an Android device will have to pay $11 per month, which is $3 more than the $8 pricing for those who subscribe through a web browser.
Why $3 extra for Android Mobiles?
The extra cost on Android devices is likely because the company wants to avoid paying fees for in-app purchases to Google, similar to how they did with Apple. As a result, users will have to pay more for the service on Android devices.
Requirement for Twitter Blue Subscription
To sign up for Twitter Blue, users must have a Twitter account created more than 90 days ago. Additionally, all Twitter Blue subscribers must confirm their phone numbers as part of the sign-up process. Once subscribed, changes to a user’s profile photo, display name, or username will result in the loss of the blue verification mark until the account is validated as continuing to meet the company’s requirements. No further changes will be allowed during this review period.

Price and Availability

Twitter Blue subscribers who initially subscribed to the service for $7.99 on iOS will receive a notification from Apple that their subscription. Unless they cancel their subscription, they will be automatically renewed for $11 per month (or the local pricing). Subscribers who initially joined for $2.99 or $4.99 per month on iOS will have to upgrade their subscription to $8 per month or $84 per year on the web or $11 per month on iOS (or the local pricing) or lose access to the service.
Twitter Blue is still in the confusion zone. The official verification and Twitter Blue should not be confused with one another. Forcing users to buy subscriptions that are not worthy is not a good idea. Also, By Spending $8-11/month, anyone can pretend themself as a verified one, which may lead to Scams. Also, those with a high follower base are worthy of subscribing, and Twitter only got $8-11/month.
Twitter may follow the YouTube Join function or a Patreon-like model. The followers get exclusive features from their celebrity page, and Twitter also gets proper revenue. The Celebrity or the high follower page also can earn from that model. Until Twitter settles into stable features and proves itself, they are worthy; It may not get high Twitter Blue Subscribers.
