Starting Monday the Twitter Blue subscription service will relaunch after it was previously pulled from the social media platform.
The features included will be a blue checkmark, but prices will differ depending on how you go about purchasing it.
People using Twitter for iOS will see a higher price than those who use the website for purchase. The cost will be $8 through the website or $11 through iOS, according to 9to5mac.
While there were issues last time this feature rolled out, this time Twitter says it’s implemented practices to help crack down on the impersonation issue it dealt with last time.
First, to get the verified subscription, a phone number is required. Your account will be reviewed before being given a blue checkmark. The process for your account to be reviewed has not been revealed. In addition, anytime a verified subscriber changes their profile picture, Twitter handle, or display name, the checkmark will be removed until the account is reviewed again.
Businesses and brands will be getting a gold checkmark. Government accounts will receive a gray checkmark.
The Twitter Blue account will get subscribers early access to other features like posting longer videos. Twitter Blue users will also be prioritized in mentions and searches. They’ll also see less ads. These features are not out just yet.
Right now there is only a 280 character limit, but it’s been announced a plan for a 4,000 character limit is in the works.
