Subscribe To Twitter Blue On Android Devices

More than a month after having (re)launched the new version of the paid service Twitter Blue for owners of iOS devices, it is the turn of Android followers to have access to it.

Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, said in December that the subscription price for owners of Android devices would be lower than that charged to owners of Apple devices. But today, he seems to have backtracked. It costs the same price, $15 per month, to subscribe to the service, regardless of the operating system on which the mobile application is installed.

Possibility of Saving $5

Internet users also have the possibility of saving $5 on their subscription to Twitter Blue by making the transaction on a web browser. This is a way to circumvent the large commissions (around 30%) that the App Store and Google Play Store take on every purchase made through a mobile app downloaded there.

A new annual subscription is also offered for $105, the equivalent of $8.74 per month, on the web.

Twitter Blue’s redesign promises its users a host of features, including priority display of their comments, 50% fewer ads, and the ability to post 60-minute videos. Subscribers can also preview a tweet before posting it, customize their profile with themes, and change the app icon to their liking.

The main attraction is above all the addition of a blue authentication hook next to his pseudonym. This option has caused a lot of ink to flow in recent months, in particular because of the risk of confusion with official accounts.

The service is available in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan and New Zealand.
