Twitter Blue, the company’s paid subscription service, is now available in more than 20 new countries. These include Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Sweden. Twitter Blue, which gives a number of extra perks for folks willing to pay $8 per month, relaunched late last year after a string of delays and last-minute reworkings. Besides the blue verification checkmark, it also offers users the ability to edit tweets, organize bookmarked tweets into folders, use NFT Profile Pictures, change app themes, post hour-long videos, and create longer tweets, among other features. Since recently, Twitter Blue is also offering some features which were previously available to all users but were removed, such as two-factor authentications via SMS messages. And in the future, Twitter Blue will give users the option to see fewer ads in their timeline.
Note that Twitter Blue is cheaper through the website than it is on mobile. If you sign in on Twitter’s site, you can get it for $84 per year; on iOS and Android it costs $114. Prices vary by market; in Europe, the monthly plan is 8 euros per month, while the annual plan is 84 euros per month. For a full list of all the countries Twitter Blue is available in, go here.
