Twitter Blue subscriptions rolling out globally, regardless of missing features
Twitter CEO and owner Elon Musk called the blue subscription feature 'essential to defeat spam/scam'
Twitter has announced that its Twitter Blue subscription service is now available globally.
Following the latest announcement, people all over the world can now pay for the blue tick subscription.
While the subscription has been pretty widely available before (you could sign up for it in almost 50 countries), the expanded availability reflects the company’s drive to make Twitter Blue an increasingly important part of the service.
Part of those efforts, however, includes making promises that it hasn’t kept yet. The company’s announcement tweets list some of the benefits of Twitter Blue, such as getting a checkmark, the ability to write longer tweets, getting prioritised ranking in conversations, and seeing half as many ads.
Those last two, however, haven’t actually rolled out yet. When you click on the link to sign up for the service, they’re still listed as “Coming Soon.”
CEO and owner Elon Musk has been promising prioritised ranking since November, calling the feature “essential to defeat spam/scam.”
However, despite (or maybe because of) Musk’s push to make employees work in “hardcore” conditions, it hasn’t materialised.
