Twitter Blue, the premium service of the social network led by Elon Musk, has finally arrived in Mexico. But is it really worth paying for your monthly or yearly subscription? What benefits does this paid variant enjoy that will make us prefer it over the free version? The truth is that until the beginning of last month, The Information (via xataka) reported that only 0.2% of Twitter users had migrated to Blue; that is, just under 300,000 Internet users. So it remains to be seen if this figure improves now that its arrival in Mexico is official, a week after it also had its debut in twenty European nations.
What are the benefits of Twitter Blue?
Among the exclusive functions for those people subscribed to Twitter Blue, the following stand out:
- Subscribers can edit their already published tweets up to five times within thirty minutes.
- Subscriber tweets, replies, and quotes can be up to 4,000 characters long.
- If they have a verified phone number, subscribers receive an authentication mark (a blue tick).
- Subscribers can set their profile picture with an NFT they own.
- It is possible to publish longer videos and in 1080p (Full HD) quality.
Other advantages worth noting are reading mode, personalized navigation, the existence of a folder to save items, the ability to star articles and early access to certain new features through Twitter Blue Labs.
- Subscribers will see 50% less advertising on their home pages.
- Verified subscribers (those with a blue tick) will have priority to appear in the first places of answers, mentions and searches.
