After debuting over a year and a half back in Australia and Canada and rumours of its India release, Twitter Blue is now available in India for ₹650 per month for desktops and ₹900 for iOS and Android users.

The Blue subscription was also launched in Indonesia and Brazil, which brings the number of countries where Twitter Blue is available to 15.

Twitter Blue’s key features include the following:

  • Blue checkmark
  • App icon customisation
  • Undo timer on tweets
  • Edit tweets up to five times within 30 minutes of posting it
  • Full HD (1080p) Long videos of 60-min on Twitter web and 10-min on iOS and Android
  • Bookmark folders
  • Reader for threads
  • Fewer ads

Twitter Blue subscribers in the USA can now tweet up to 4000 characters in a single post, up from 280 characters — which is double the original limit of 140. However, the post will be capped at 280 characters with a show more option. All users, regardless of their Twitter Blue status, can read the 4000 character-tweet.
