By subscribing to Twitter’s service, users can obtain the coveted blue ‘verified’ checkmark next to their name. However, to receive this verification, users must first verify their phone number and undergo a verification process. Once approved, verified users who have paid for the Blue subscription will have their tweets and replies prioritised by Twitter and displayed at the top of their followers’ feeds. In addition, Blue subscribers will see a 50% reduction in ads on their Twitter feed. Another perk of the subscription is the ability to post longer videos of up to 1 hour. Finally, users will have the option to edit or undo their tweets up to 5 times within a 30-minute timeframe. The service is available in more than 20 countries.
