Twitter’s subscription option will be relaunched on Monday, and the social media network will further color-code timelines by introducing gold checkmarks for businesses and, later, gray checkmarks for government.
According to Esther Crawford, Twitter’s director of product management, the Twitter Blue membership will be reintroduced on Monday, beginning in five countries before rapidly extending to others.
Twitter tweeted that Twitter Blue will cost $8 per month on Android or $11 on iOS “to get access to subscriber-only features, including the blue checkmark.”
“Businesses who previously had relationships with Twitter will receive goldchecks on Monday. We will soon open this up to more businesses via a new process,” tweeted Crawford.
