Twitter Blue is back!

Starting today, we’re re-enabling Twitter Blue sign ups on iOS and web. Twitter Blue subscribers will get access to subscriber-only features* such as Edit Tweet, 1080p video uploads and reader mode. Subscribers will also receive a blue checkmark after their accounts are reviewed to ensure they meet all of our requirements, including our rules against impersonation. Accounts found to be breaking our rules may be suspended without a refund.

Twitter Blue is $8/month on web, and $11/month for those who sign up on iOS. Subscribers who sign up on one platform will have Twitter Blue access on all supported platforms (iOS, Android, and web). Existing Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to upgrade, cancel, or auto-renew their subscription at the new price. Prices may vary by region. We plan to offer subscriptions on Android soon.

Subscribing to Twitter Blue is now available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. We plan to roll out Blue to more countries soon.

In addition to reviewing all accounts at sign up, we’re taking a number of other steps to detect and prevent impersonation. Subscribers who change their profile information, including display name, profile photo, and username (@handle), will temporarily lose their blue checkmark until those changes are reviewed by Twitter. Accounts created within the last 90 days, inactive accounts, accounts without a verified phone number, and accounts with recent changes to their profile information will not be able to subscribe to Twitter Blue at this time.

Gold checkmarks and more

In addition to these changes, starting today, we’re replacing the “official” label with a gold checkmark on some business accounts on Twitter. Soon, we’ll also add a gray checkmark for government and multilateral accounts. Learn more about profile labels on Twitter here.

You can now apply for early access to Verification for Organizations. Apply now or read more here.

Thank you to our Twitter Blue subscribers and our advertisers for your feedback and support!

*Note: We continue to improve Twitter Blue. Subscriber-only features may be subject to change and some features are currently platform specific.
