As you may know, Elon Musk’s first big move/decision after the acquisition of the giant Twitter was the implementation of the Twitter Blue system, which, in short, allows the purchase of the old and so desired blue verification signal, on any account.
Yeah… The thing went wrong, and Elon Musk’s whole plan resulted in a complete humiliation, and perhaps worse than that, in a route devaluation of the social network in the eyes of the public. But calm down! Sometimes, mistakes serve as the cruelest form of learning, so after the first failure, Elon Musk is now ready to implement the system and verification paid via subscription, now a little more refined.
However, according to new information, this service will be more expensive in the world of smartphones, compared to the web versions of the exact same social network..
Twitter: Blue check will be more expensive on iPhone than on Android
So Twitter Blue is coming back, now with more serious verification. However, the price will go up for iPhone, and down for web users. That is, in the United States, on the iPhone, the subscription will cost 11 dollars per month, while in other cases it will go down to 7 dollars per month.
Why a higher price on the iPhone?
In fact, it’s very simple. Apple’s App Store charges an extra 30% on any in-app purchase. Therefore, as Twitter cannot lose iPhone users, it cannot “lose” this money either… The monthly fee is higher.
Google also always takes 30% of each sale, so it is very likely that the price on this side will also be slightly higher, although nothing is yet confirmed on the Google OS side for the world of smartphones.
