You Can Now Get Twitter's Coveted 'Blue Tick' Subscription In India — At These Prices

Twitter’s subscription service aka ‘Twitter Blue’ which was earlier available in only a handful of countries, has finally been launched in India, which allows users to get the coveted ‘blue tick’ to show on their profiles, implying authenticity.

What Happened? Twitter Blue is finally available to Indian users allowing paid access to a verified profile and numerous other features. These features include the ability to edit tweets, post longer videos, organize bookmarks, customize the app icon and choose between several colour themes, view fewer ads and set a non-fungible token (NFT) as the profile picture.

In order to avail Twitter Blue in India on mobile, users would need to pay ₹900 per month for both Android and iOS devices, while the price for a subscription plan on the web will set users back by ₹650 per month.

The microblogging giant — led by Elon Musk — also has on offer an annual subscription plan for web users that is priced at ₹6,800.
