Twitter will relaunch a new version of Twitter Blue at a higher cost for Apple customers on Monday. The business gave no explanation as to why Apple customers were subjected to higher online prices than other consumers. According to media sources, the business was searching for strategies to reduce the costs associated with the App Store.
According to the firm, users may subscribe to the updated service for $8 per month through the web but $11 per month via Apple iOS, which will allow users to edit tweets, upload 1080p videos, and receive a blue checkmark upon account verification.
Early in November, Twitter first debuted Twitter Blue before halting it as phony accounts proliferated. Later, it was rescheduled to premiere on Nov. 29 but was delayed.
Elon Musk, who paid $44 billion to buy Twitter in November, cited a number of issues with Apple in a series of tweets last month, including the 30% fee the iPhone manufacturer charges software developers for in-app purchases.
Musk said that Apple had threatened to remove Twitter from its app store and that the company had ceased running advertisements on the network.
