Twitter Blue Tick subscription to be relaunched on November 29, Elon Musk says

Tesla Chief Elon Musk has revealed that the revamped Twitter Blue will finally be relaunched on November 29. The billionaire made the announcement on Twitter. He claimed that the service will get delayed to get a ‘rock solid’ start.

In his tweet, he said, “Punting relaunch of Blue Verified to November 29th to make sure that it is rock solid (sic).”

Twitter first started rolling out the new Blue subscription on iOS earlier this month in the US. However, the platform pulled Blue signups a few days later after a wave of fake verified accounts popped up on the platform.

With the relaunched Blue, Musk says that changing your “verified name” will cause you to lose your checkmark until that name is confirmed by Twitter.

Elon Musk has announced that the new feature will cost $7.99 in the US. In India, the price hasn’t been revealed officially but many users reported that they were getting notifications to subscribe to Twitter Blue at a price of Rs 719.

In fact, ahead of the roll-out of Blue Tick subscription across India, Elon Musk’s newly acquired micro-blogging platform Twitter had started labeling Indian government handles and Indian media as ‘official’.
