Twitter Blue Is Available Worldwide

Now it is possible to get that special tick next to your name, regardless of where you are.


We have often reported on the development of Twitter Blue. The original concept quickly fizzled out after many companies (e.g., Valve, Nintendo) got imitations, and since there was no distinction at the time as to who got it and why, Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, had to move quickly to avoid a significant and rampant problem with impersonations. Then, the redesigned model was launched, which became available in the US for $8 a month on a PC subscription and $11 a month on iOS and Android due to Apple and Google’s microtransaction margins.

Twitter is using regional pricing, and we can also provide official figures on how much you have to pay per month to get a better service on the “bird site.” In our country, on PC, it’s 3619.5 HUF per month. On iOS and Android, it’s 4000. The annual subscription is 38100 HUF on PC and 41490 on mobile. The monthly fee is more than eight dollars because that is roughly 2850 HUF converted. Add the world-record 27% VAT, and you’re at around 3600 forints! So that’s what it costs. There is no significant difference…

In addition to the blue tick for the subscription, you get priority in conversations; you can show up in the verified tab in the notifications, get half the advertising, write longer tweets (4000 characters instead of 280), bookmark folders, receive custom navigation, edit and undo tweets, and post longer videos. Some features (such as priority in conversations) will come later. From 1 April, the old, traditional blue ticks will disappear, so individuals must pay up. Relevant government and multilateral accounts will receive a grey checkmark, and corporate accounts will receive a gold checkmark. Musk added that the accounts of individuals linked to organizations and companies will also be automatically verified.

So if you want, you can sign up for Twitter Blue without a VPN, but the notion of regional pricing doesn’t seem entirely fair. For example, in Slovenia (part of the Eurozone), you have to pay 9.76/11 euros, which is also higher than the US pricing. In most countries, they have simply kept the US $8/11. So much for that…
