Elon Musk confirmed by publishing a tweet that the new Twitter Blue service with a subscription fee of $7.99 will be relaunched on December 8.
Blue Twitter service experienced many ups and downs after Elon Musk took over this social network. The new owner of Twitter increased the subscription fee of this service from $4.99 to $7.99 and announced that the price of this Twitter service for users in different countries will be determined according to their financial ability.
After buying Twitter, Elon Musk set a one-week ultimatum for the company’s employees to update the Blue Twitter service and asked them to launch this service as soon as possible. Finally, the Twitter Blue service was launched at a price of $7.99, but it quickly faced other problems and became unavailable. Now Elon Musk has announced in a tweet that this service will be launched again on November 29.
The story of the blue Twitter service
In the past, Twitter’s blue tick was assigned to the user account of well-known people such as politicians, journalists, and other well-known personalities after going through some authentication procedures.
But Elon Musk decided in the new Twitter Blue service that every user can get this badge by paying 8 dollars per month.
Due to the fact that this decision coincided with the mid-term elections in the United States, Elon Musk decided to postpone the launch of this service with new conditions until after the elections. Finally, Blue Tick is available for iOS users. But a few days later, a wave of fake user accounts was registered on the platform of this social network with a blue tick.
The mess forced Twitter to temporarily suspend access to the service. Some advertising companies have suspended their ads on this social network due to the chaotic situation on Twitter.
One of the world’s largest advertising companies has warned its clients against advertising on Twitter, followed by two other advertising companies.
In such a situation, Elon Musk announced in a tweet that the new Twitter Blue service will be available to users from December 8. It remains to be seen what will happen next for this social network regarding the Twitter Blue service.
