Twitter Blue arrives for Android, gets annual subscription

Twitter relaunched its Blue verification subscription last month. However, it was limited to iOS and web users. Now, the company has launched the subscription for Android users in the countries in which Twitter Blue is available.

The pricing remains the same for Android users.  Twitter Blue charges $8 per month on the web and $11 per month on iOS and Android. There is a new $84/year subscription plan for the web. The amount varies depending on the country.

Those who sign up for Twitter Blue on one platform will be able to use it on all platforms that support it (iOS, Android, and web).


Twitter Blue is currently available in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and the UK. There are several features for Twitter Blue subscribers in addition to the Blue verification badge.

Twitter Blue users get several features (Not all features available on all platforms), including:

  • Bookmark folders: Bookmark Folders let Twitter Blue subscribers group and organize Bookmarked Tweets into folders for faster discovery later. Twitter Blue allows you an unlimited number of bookmarks and Bookmark folders which are always private.
  • Custom app icons: With Custom App icons, you can change how your Twitter App icon displays on your phone. Choose from several colorful options. Check your settings regularly for new featured looks available for a limited time.
  • Themes: Twitter Blue Themes let you choose from colorful options for your app theme.
  • Custom navigation: This feature lets you choose what appears in your navigation bar, so you get quick access to the content and Twitter destinations you care about most. You can select at least 2 and up to 6 items to keep in your bottom navigation bar or restore to default if you change your mind.
  • Top Articles: Top Articles is a shortcut to the most-shared articles in your network. This feature automatically lists the most-shared articles from people you follow—and people they follow, too—so you can easily find the type of content you want to read.
  • Reader: Turn long threads into a more beautiful reading experience. We’ve designed Reader to let you enjoy your threads with less noise. Turn the Reader feature on when you tap the reader icon at the top of the thread, or use it to change your text size.
  • Undo Tweet: Undo Tweet gives you the option to retract a Tweet after you send it, but before it’s visible to others on Twitter. It’s not an edit* button, but a chance to preview and revise your Tweet before it’s posted for the world to see. Once the Undo period is over, the Tweet is viewable to your followers and you can either leave it or delete it, like you normally would on Twitter.
  • Prioritized rankings in conversations: This feature prioritizes your replies on Tweets that you interact with.
  • Longer video upload: Share more content with your followers. Twitter Blue subscribers can upload videos up to ~60 minutes long up to 2GB file size (1080p) (web only).
