Twitter Raises Blue Prices For iPhone App Users To $11 – Report

Twitter Inc plans to change prices for its Twitter Blue subscription product to $11 (€10.46), from $7.99 (€7.60) when paid for through its iPhone app, and to $7 (€6.66) if paid for on the site, the information reported Wednesday, citing a person briefed on the plans.

The move was likely a backlash against Apple Inc.’s 30 percent cut in payments made by users through apps on the iOS operating system, the report said.

The lower prices on the site are also likely to attract more users to this platform rather than signing up on their iPhones, the report said. There was no mention of whether prices would change for the Android platform as well.

Musk, who acquired Twitter in October, plans to launch the microblogging site’s verified service with different-colored checks for individuals, businesses and governments after a botched initial launch led to a surge in users posing as celebrities and brands on the platform .

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

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

He also posted a meme implying that he was willing to “go to war” with Apple rather than pay the commission.

Musk later met Apple CEO Tim Cook at the company’s headquarters and later tweeted that the misunderstanding over Twitter’s removal from Apple’s App Store was resolved.
