If you are looking to subscribe or get Twitter Blue in the UK, I have good news for you. The United Kingdom is one of the very few countries that have access to this Twitter service. Twitter Blue is Twitter’s new premium monthly subscription that gives you access to multiple exclusive features and a blue checkmark added to your name. Some of these features include; Edit Tweet, Custom All Icons, Undo Tweet, Bookmark folders, Themes, Reader, and Custom navigation.
This package is only available to iOS users (at least, for now). This means that if you currently use an Android device, you do not have access to the Twitter Blue subscription. Let’s take a look at the features on Twitter Blue and how to get Twitter Blue in the UK.
Twitter Blue Features
Here are the features you stand to gain when you get to Twitter Blue in the UK.
The Undo Tweet does exactly what the name insinuates. The feature is activated by default when you subscribe to Twitter Blue. You can personally turn it on or off from your Twitter Blue settings. While turned on, there is a Tweet Undo period every time you tweet, and this tweet is private till that period expires and you tap on “send now”. When it is turned off, your tweet is sent immediately, like a regular tweet.
Bookmark Folders assist you with the organization of your saved tweets. To create a Bookmarked Folder, you must bookmark a tweet with a Twitter Blue subscription. When you add a tweet to your bookmark, a notification with the option to ” Add to folder” will pop up. There is no limit to the number of bookmarks you can have with Twitter Blue.
This feature allows you to choose and save at least 2-6 items for your button navigation bar on your Twitter app. When the default items from the navigation bar are removed, you will find them listed in the Profile menu.
Twitter App Icon
The Twitter App Icon feature gives you the privilege of picking how you want your Twitter App icon to be displayed. There are lots of colors and seasonal options to pick from. Some of which are only available for a limited time.
Twitter App Theme
One of the coolest features you have access to when you get Twitter Blue in the UK. is the Twitter App Theme. The feature allows you to customize the theme colors for your Twitter app.
“Labs” is an exclusive Twitter Blue feature that Twitter Blue users have early access to features that are being tested before they become available to other users. As time goes on, features will change. Some features may become available to all Twitter users while others become exclusive subscribers-only features.
From February 2023, Twitter Blue users are no longer limited to 280 words but are now able to compose tweets of up to 4,000 characters. This extended character limit also applies to Twitter Blue in the UK.
