The highly sought-after verified badge-containing Twitter Blue service now has an annual subscription option. Instead of paying $8 per month for web users and $11 per month for iOS users to subscribe to the service, users can now pay an annual fee of $84. The United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia will all be eligible for the discount.
Twitter Blue was first introduced in December 2022, and at the time, it was only available for web and iOS-based users. Now, one month later, the company has not only introduced the service for Android users, but it has also introduced an annual subscription plan. However, it's important to note that this annual plan is only available for web users. Hence, if you subscribe to Twitter Blue via Twitter's iOS- or Android-based app, you will need to pay a monthly rental fee.
