Along with some of the previously promised features, the new Twitter Blue subscription service is constantly adding new features. Twitter Blue subscribers can upload videos that are up to an hour long and have their tweets prioritized in chats.
Longer videos can now be uploaded from the internet with a 2GB file size and a 1080p resolution. Prior to this modification, Twitter Blue subscribers were only able to upload videos up to ten minutes in length at 1080p and 512MB in size. For the time being, this restriction still holds true if you upload using Twitter’s Android or iOS apps.
Twitter says that in chats, users will see “a slight preference for replies from Blue’s verified accounts over replies from other accounts.” Simply put, people with a Blue subscription or who were verified using the old system before Elon Musk took over will have the most replies in any conversation.
It’s likely that Twitter Blue will get a lot of new features in the future, so the $8 per month fee is worth it (or 11 USD if signing up from the iOS ecosystem). The blue verification badge is still the main reason why people spend money on Twitter right now.
