Twitter Blue is now expanding to more than 20 new countries in Europe, making the subscription service available in a total of 35 countries.
These countries include: Netherlands, Poland, Ireland, Belgium, Sweden, Romania, Czech Republic, Finland, Denmark, Greece, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Slovakia, Latvia, Slovenia, Estonia, Croatia, Luxembourg, Malta, and Cyprus.
Twitter Blue was first launched back in December 2022 just after Elon Musk took over the company. The subscription service lets anyone willing to pay $8 a month get the Blue verification mark, previously only available to “notable” accounts.
Twitter Blue also offers several other features that have overall been welcome by users: the ability to post 60-minute long-videos, an exclusive 4,000-character limit for tweets (the maximum character counts for regular users is 280) and getting priority in conversations (Twitter Blue subscribers see their replies rank on top of all other replies in the feed.) But perhaps the biggest addition to the Twitter experience is the ability for paid subscribers to edit their tweets.
Despite the appeal of these new features, Twitter Blue is struggling to get new subscribers. According to estimates and reports, the service only has less than 300,000 subscribers to date. To remedy the situation Twitter recently launched an annual plan at $84 on desktop (regular pricing amounts to $8 per month) and $114 on both iOS and Android.
