Blue Twitter: Twitter’s intermittent subscription service will launch once again next week after several aborted attempts. For iOS users, the service will cost extra and will also come with a system for platform-specific account authentication.

$8 per month via the web but $11 per month via Apple iOS
Customers can sign up for the revised service, which would cost $8 per month via the web but $11 per month via Apple iOS, according to the company.
Once their accounts have been verified, subscribers will be able to modify tweets, upload 1080p videos, and earn the coveted blue checkmark.
The check mark will turn gray for public bodies and gold for companies later this week, according to AFP.
The platform tweeted: “We’re relaunching @TwitterBlue on Monday – subscribe on the web for $8/mo or on iOS (from Apple) for $11/mo to get access to subscriber-only features, including the blue checkmark.”

Why are iOS users being asked to pay more?
Twitter did not address why Apple users paid more than other Internet users, but according to media reports, the company was looking for ways to match the costs of the App Store.
Twitter had initially launched Twitter Blue in early November before discontinuing it due to an increase in fraudulent accounts. After that, it was supposed to be re-released on November 29, but it was delayed.
Musk cited a number of complaints with Apple last month in a series of tweets, including the 30% fee the iPhone maker charges software developers for in-app sales.
He further claimed that the company stopped running ads on the social networking site and that the platform had threatened to remove Twitter from its app store.
However, he tweeted that the misunderstanding over Twitter’s removal from Apple’s app store was resolved after meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook.
