According to Twitter, the monthly premium subscription will be made available starting the following week. According to the social media platform, an iOS subscription would cost USD 11 per month and a web membership will cost USD 8 per month. The premium features include the blue checkmark and the capacity to edit tweets.
Later this week, Twitter said it would begin replacing that “official” branding with a gold checkmark for businesses and a grey checkmark for governments and multilateral organisations. If a subscriber changes their handle, display name, or profile picture before their account is approved once more, the blue checkmark will momentarily disappear.

The paid features include the blue checkmark, the ability to edit tweets, higher-quality video uploads, and reader mode ,” Twitter in an official tweet.

In late October, Elon Musk completed the purchase of Twitter for USD 44 billion. Twitter was founded in 2006 and has its headquarters in San Francisco, California. The richest man in the world changed how the business ran on a daily basis, sacking two-thirds of the staff at Twitter as well as executives in charge of cybersecurity, privacy, and censorship.
According to Musk, the business started developing a software upgrade on December 9 that will let users know whether they have been “shadow banned” and why.
“Twitter is working on a software update that will show your true account status, so you know clearly if you’ve been shadowbanned, the reason why and how to appeal,” he tweeted.
