Twitter Blue Available on Android Phones, Same Cost as iOS , Twitter , a social media platform recently acquired by Elon Musk, recently launched its premium service, namely Twitter Blue. A day after launching its one-year subscription service, Twitter is expanding Twitter Blue to Android users.

Reporting from Techcrunch , Thursday (19/1/2023), Twitter decided to apply a subscription fee of US $ 11 per month for Android phone users. The charge is the same as iOS, or higher if subscribed through a web browser .

It is strongly suspected that Elon Musk wants to avoid paying fees for in-app purchases to Google, just as Twitter does to Apple. As a result, both smartphone users with Android and iOS operating systems are charged more expensively.

Currently, the Twitter Blue subscription package is available on all platforms in six countries, namely the United States (US), Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Twitter Blue subscribers now get features such as blue ticks, long video uploads, and priority order in conversation replies.

Other features include a thread reader , the ability to edit tweets and custom icon themes. Twitter launched its annual subscription plan at a price of US$ 84 per year on Monday (16/1/2023).

This is the cheapest way to get the Twitter Blue service plan. However, given the company has added and pulled features, there’s no guarantee the current set of benefits will be available over the year.

After Twitter implemented Twitter Blue’s new subscription policy across all platforms, it’s all about waiting to see if it brings in the big bucks, as Musk had hoped. Earlier this week, the Financial Times reported Twitter was facing a maturity date for interest payments on nearly $13 billion in loans later this month.

The debt came from Musk in order to fulfill his action to buy Twitter. With this debt, Twitter expects revenue from its premium services to increase.
