Twitter Blue, a subscription service for Twitter, will soon be accessible for users in Pakistan.
The Twitter Blue icon has been spotted on the sidebar in the web version of the platform by some Pakistani users.
Clicking the icon opens a window that details the features included with a subscription purchase.
The key features of Twitter Blue subscription include;
- A blue checkmark (tick) next to the user’s name
- Can post longer videos
- New features will be introduced first
- Can edit Tweet
- NFT profile pictures can be used
- 1080p (HD) quality video upload
While the official launch of Twitter Blue in Pakistan is pending, its payment plan has not been disclosed yet.
It is pertinent to mention here that Twitter Blue is currently offered in 12 countries, including the United States of America. The launch of Twitter Blue in Pakistan is likely to occur in the near future.
The desktop version of the app costs $8 (Rs2,200), while access to all new features for the iOS and Android versions requires a payment of more than $11 (Rs3,000).
Elon Musk, the owner of the social media giant, unveiled Twitter Blue in November 2022. However, a flood of fake celebrity and institutional accounts with blue ticks prompted the company to disband the service.
The services were re-introduced with modifications in December 2022.
