Twitter Blue, the subscription service offered by Twitter, has expanded its availability to more than 20 countries. The service offers users access to premium features such as Undo Tweet, Bookmark Folders, Reader Mode, and customizable app icons.
Twitter’s premium paid plan Twitter Blue is now available to more than 20 new countries in Europe. These countries include Netherlands, Poland, Ireland, Belgium, Sweden, Romania, Czech Republic, Finland, Denmark, Greece, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Slovakia, Latvia, Slovenia, Estonia, Croatia, Luxembourg, Malta, and Cyprus.
With this expansion, the social network’s subscription service is now available in more than 35 countries worldwide. Twitter Blue was first launched in December by Elon Musk at a $8 per month price point, with the Blue verification mark for paying users.
Later, the company added features such as the ability to post 60-minute videos and 4,000-character tweets, as well as get priority in conversations. The plan also includes some legacy features such as the ability to edit tweets, a thread reader, and bookmark folders.
Twitter launched an annual plan for $84 per year in January to increase subscribers. Twitter has recently launched an annual plan priced at $114 on both iOS and Android.
While Musk has been counting on subscription plans to generate a lot of revenue, the early results haven’t been promising. According to reports and estimates, the new Twitter Blue service has fewer than 300,000 subscribers.
Many users were unable to access various parts of Twitter earlier this week, including timelines, searches, and direct messages. These issues arose after Musk reportedly fired more than 200 people in the most recent round of job cuts.
