You no longer have to wonder if the relaunched Twitter Blue subscription is available in your country. Twitter has confirmed this blue is now available global. Pay $8 a month ($11 if you sign up through the iOS app) and you’ll get the blue tick which isn’t so special anymore as well as 4,000 character tweetstop ranking in the answerspost-editing and other benefits.
Organizations, meanwhile, can pursue a more helpful checkmark next to their names. Twitter has started to accept applications for the gray check marks that vet government officials and organizations, not to mention their counterparts in multilateral institutions. As you can guess, the criteria are stricter. Candidates must use either their government ID card or a valid email address, and must describe their positions and duties. Companies can already apply for golden checkmarks.
Twitter Blue is now available worldwide! Sign up today to get your blue tick, conversation priority ranking, half ads, long Tweets, bookmark folders, personalized navigation, Edit Tweet, Cancel Tweet, and more. Register here : https://t.co/SBRLJccMxD

Launch of the new Twitter Blue in November, but soon ran into trouble. Since the tick was the same whether you paid for it or were a verified old user, people were quick to use the membership to impersonate notable characters. Twitter soon new blocked accounts to sign up for Blue and had to re-roll the level in December with gold and gray checkmarks.
A global rollout could be key to boosting Blue’s popularity. According to a leak source, the paid option would have had only 180,000 subscribers in the United States in mid-January. CEO Elon Musk reportedly wants half of Twitter’s revenue to come from subscriptions, which requires reaching a large audience. Now, it’s less about availability and more about whether enough users will consider the additional features worthwhile.
