Twitter Blue is only available in select countries, India roll-out could be near
Unfortunately for Indian Twitter users, this is a Twitter Blue-exclusive bonus – a subscription not yet launched in the country. Currently, the subscription is only available in the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, France, Portugal, Italy, and Spain, as per Twitter’s official site.
Although there’s no official word on when Twitter Blue will roll out in India, a Twitter Blue button that was briefly displayed on the platform for Indian users hints that the subscription may be on its way in the near future. Clicking on this button displayed an array of membership benefits enjoyed by the users. Sooner than later, the social media giant may introduce Twitter Blue and its Indian price point.
Twitter Blue features available in other countries
Apart from the blue tick and recently announced ad revenue share, Twitter Blue users get several other exclusive features, such as edit tweet option, undo tweet option, bookmark folders, longer video uploads, ‘Spaces’ tab, ‘Top Articles’, and ‘Reader’ mode. The subscription also provides customisation features, including custom app icons, themes, NFT profile pictures, and customisable navigation bar. Other user experience-oriented features include ‘50% fewer ads’, and prioritised ranking in reply threads.
Moreover, new Twitter users have to wait for a 90-day period before purchasing the subscription. The platform further mentions on its website that it may “impose waiting periods for new accounts in the future at our discretion, and without notice.” A user’s checkmark can also be taken away without refund in case of terms violation or account suspension.
