Twitter Blue is now available in India. The microblogging startup controlled by Elon Musk has begun “selling” the verified blue tick to individuals who desire it in India, following a restricted deployment in the US, UK, and others that began in November of last year. Twitter Blue costs Rs 900 per month on mobile (Android/iOS) and Rs 650 per month on the web in India.
This indicates that Twitter Blue will be more expensive if you subscribe via the Twitter app. This is consistent with pricing worldwide. Twitter Blue is available for $11 on mobile in the United States.
If you choose to subscribe via the web (desktop/mobile), Twitter Blue will cost you Rs 650 per month (in the United States, Twitter charges $8 per month).

If you are able to commit for a longer period of time, indicating that you are a dedicated user, Twitter will also offer you an annual plan for Rs 6,800. That is roughly Rs 567 each month.
If you’re wondering why Twitter charges differently for mobile app and web browser sign-ups, it’s likely to avoid Google and Apple’s commissions on in-app purchases made through the Play Store and App Store, respectively.
Twitter Blue subscription tags with the once-coveted blue tick verified badge will be visible, albeit you must be aware that you “bought” for it. (This is distinct from the official badges that Twitter provides to a select few users based on their social standing and significance.) However, the corporation maintains the right to verify your identity through an interval approval procedure that requires a phone number as a prerequisite. In November, a spate of suspicious accounts began to emerge, prompting the implementation of this measure.

In addition, Twitter Blue subscribers will have precedence in search, the option to publish lengthier videos, and access to Twitter Blue Labs services such as Tweet editing. Users in the United States can now send longer tweets.
