Twitter to hike Blue subscription price to $11 for iPhone app users: Report

[ad_1]


Inc plans to change the pricing of its Blue subscription product to $11, from $7.99, if paid for through its app and to $7 if paid for on the website, the Information reported on Wednesday, citing a person briefed on the plans.


The move was likely a pushback against Inc’s 30% cut on any payments made by users via apps on the iOS operating system, the report said.


The lower pricing on the website was also likely to drive more users to that platform as opposed to signing up on their iPhones, the report said. It did not mention whether pricing would change for the Android platform as well.


Musk, who took ownership of in October, is planning to roll out the micro blogging site’s verified service with different colored checks for individuals, companies and governments, after a botched initial launch led to a surge in users impersonating celebrities and brands on the platform.


Twitter, and Google, which owns the Android operating system, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Musk, in a series of tweets last week listed various grievances with Apple, including the 30% fee the maker charges software developers for in-app purchases.


He also posted a meme suggesting he was willing to “go to war” with rather than paying the commission.


Musk later met Apple chief executive Tim Cook at the company’s headquarters and later tweeted that the misunderstanding about Twitter being removed from Apple’s app store was resolved.
