Twitter is preparing to launch Twitter Blue at a more expensive price for Apple users
Twitter will release a revised variant of their subscription program Twitter Blue on Monday at an increased price for Apple customers according to an announcement on Twitter on Saturday.
The company announced that users can join the service, which will permit users to edit tweets, upload 1080p video clips and also get an account verification with a blue tick for just $ 8 per month via the internet, however for $11 per month via Apple iOS.
Twitter did not provide a reason as to the reasons Apple users were charged more than other users of the internet, but there are reports in the media that the company was searching at ways to offset the costs that are charged by the App Store.
Twitter initially introduced Twitter Blue early in November before putting it on hold as fake accounts exploded. The plan was to launch on November 29, but was delayed.
In a series of tweets from last month Elon Musk, the man who was the one to take Twitter public at $44 billion on November expressed his displeasure with Apple and its products, including the 30 % fee that the iPhone maker charges developers of software on in-app purchase.
The latter then also accused Apple of having threatened to remove Twitter in its application store. He claimed Apple had announced that iPhone maker has removed advertising from the social media site.
After a second discussion in a subsequent meeting Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook, he tweeted that the confusion over Twitter having been removed the app store had been solved.
