Twitter Inc is set to re-launch a new version of its subscription service Twitter Blue on Monday at a higher price of $11 per month for Apple users.
The company said users could subscribe to the revamped service that will allow subscribers to edit tweets, upload 1080p videos and get a blue checkmark post account verification, for $8 per month through the web but for $11 per month through Apple iOS.
Twitter did not explain why it will be charging extra for Apple users. Media reports earlier said that the company was looking for ways to offset fees charged in the App Store.
Twitter initially launched the Twitter Blue verification badge for certified users in November. But it had paused the badge as fake accounts mushroomed. It was scheduled to re-launch again on Nov. 29 but was pushed back.
