Twitter has added a few additional features for its paying subscribers. While ranking during searches, mentions, and responses, the microblogging service will prioritise its paid subscribers. This means that their comments and interactions will be more apparent to other users than non-paid members. Furthermore, for Twitter Blue subscribers, the ability to upload up to 60-minute-long movies has recently been added. Twitter CEO Elon Musk stated in November that the priority function will be available. He claims that it will aid in the battle of spam/scams.
According to the About Twitter Blue page, Twitter Blue subscribers will now have a higher priority in replies than others with greater visibility. However, the microblogging site has not provided any details regarding how it will work in the event of spam, according to the report.
In addition, the microblogging service offered the option for its paying customers to upload 60-minute-long movies. The feature is currently only available on the Twitter Web and has not yet been carried out to the iOS or Android apps. According to the information provided, Twitter Blue subscribers can share a video with a runtime of up to 60 minutes and a resolution of 1080p on the web. The video should be less than 2GB in size. Previously, the limit permitted just a 10-minute video under 512MB to be uploaded.
Elon Musk reintroduced the Twitter Blue membership service in the early half of December after an embarrassing wave of phoney accounts on the first try. The first attempt came just 10 days after Musk’s $44 billion (roughly Rs. 3,63,900 crore) purchase of the platform, which was followed by a huge layoff.
Twitter Blue subscription for iOS costs $11 (almost Rs. 910) per month, while Web users must pay $8 (nearly Rs. 660) per month. The paid subscription grants early access to some features, such as Edit Tweet and other new features.
