Subscribers to get 'Edit Tweet' feature as Twitter Blue launches today

Today, on Monday, the much-talked-about Twitter Blue service is scheduled to go live. On December 11, the San Francisco-based tech giant tweeted about the news.

For $8, subscribers to the service can take advantage of a variety of special services. To avoid the 30% payment tax and potential restriction imposed by the App Store, the identical service is offered to iOS users for $11.

Following account verification, subscribers will now have access to the "Edit Tweet" option, 1080p video uploads, reader mode, and a blue checkmark.

Business accounts' "Official" labels will be replaced with a gold checkmark, while government and multilateral accounts' labels will be replaced with a grey checkmark.

Users may also modify their handle, display name, or profile picture, although doing so may result in a temporary loss of their blue checkmarks while their accounts are being examined once more.

In addition to this, Twitter has revealed a few other features that are in the works. To combat "scams and spam," the firm claims it would soon priorities tweets from verified users over those from other users. However, subscribers will see 50% fewer advertisements than unverified individuals. They can also upload longer 1080p videos.

Early birds will also get access to select new features with Twitter Blue Labs.
