After teasers, Twitter has started rolling out new features for Twitter Blue subscribers, including Blue checkmark account verification at $7.99/month. The company has updated its iOS app that says that it is testing and pushing changes in real-time. These features are still limited to the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
However, Elon Musk has confirmed that Twitter Blue will also roll out in other markets, including India, in less than a month. He already said that price will be adjusted per country according to purchasing power parity.
To remind you, Twitter Blue subscription was launched last year for $2.99/month, but it was increased to $4.99/month in July.
