Twitter is going to start ‘Twitter Blue Tick’ again for its users. When the company started this service a month ago, the social media company had to suspend the service due to the sudden creation of many fake accounts. Twitter has said that users will be able to buy a subscription to ‘Twitter Blue’ from Monday.
Basic Blue will have half the number of ads. We will offer a higher tier with no ads next year.

What is blue checkmark
Twitter’s blue checkmark was earlier given to companies, celebrities, government establishments and journalists after verification by the platform. However, industrialist Elon Musk has started a new system after the acquisition of the company. In this system, anyone can get a ‘Blue Check’ by paying eight dollars each month. iPhone users will have to pay $ 11 every month for this. This is because Apple takes 30 percent revenue from the iOS App. Twitter is also rolling out separate checkmarks for business accounts and government accounts.
The company has said that those who take this service will be able to take advantage of the facilities available only to the subscribers. These features also include a blue checkmark. Subscribers will get the edit tweets option, 1080P video upload, reader mode and a blue checkmark (after their account is reviewed). Apart from this, there will also be a golden official label for business accounts and a gray checkmark for government accounts.
Twitter said, ‘Subscribers will be able to change their handle, display name or profile photo. But if they do, they will temporarily lose the Blue checkmark until their account is reviewed again. It was later shelved after several fake accounts surfaced on the platform, copying brands and celebrities.
