On Monday, Twitter Inc. will relaunch a revamped version of its subscription service Twitter Blue at a higher fee for Apple customers.
The redesigned service will allow customers to edit tweets, upload 1080p videos, and receive a blue checkmark after account authentication for $8 per month via the web but $11 via Apple iOS.
The corporation announced this to the public via a Twitter post.
“we’re relaunching @TwitterBlue on Monday – subscribe on web for $8/month or on iOS for $11/month to get access to subscriber-only features, including the blue checkmark 🧵” the post read.

Twitter added that “subscribers will be able to change their handle, display name or profile photo, but if they do they’ll temporarily lose the blue checkmark until their account is reviewed again.”
Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk added that new features will be introduced in the near future.
Twitter could not explain why Apple users were paying more than others on the web, but media sources suggested that the business was looking for methods to offset costs charged in the Apple App Store.
Twitter Blue was initially launched in early November before being paused as bogus accounts proliferated. It was then slated to launch again on November 29 but was delayed.
