Elon Musk brings his plan to life: the $8 Twitter Blue plan
Just days after Elon Musk released the changes, including the price of $8 per month, it looks like it’s starting to roll out a new Twitter Blue tier. This service is a premium service that reflects some of Musk’s offerings. Prioritizing “quality content” promises to increase subscribers’ visibility in responses, mentions, and searches. In addition, Musk argues that this will reduce “scams, spam accounts and bots”.
It will be available initially in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Currently, Twitter Blue will only support iOS devices. Some reports also suggest that the launch may be premature. According to a tweet from Esther Crawford, a head of works at Twitter, the new Twitter Blue plan is no longer live, but some users are seeing notifications as part of a test. Musk’s breakthroughs are eagerly awaited in the cryptocurrency space, especially by the Dogecoin community. As it is known, Elon Musk can affect the price of DOGE with his various tweets.
