Twitter Blue is now available in Nigeria and it costs N5K per month and N52k per year

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Twitter Blue is now available in Nigeria and it costs N5K per month and N52k per year.

When Twitter Blue was announced in June 2021, many hoped that it would bring a new dimension to how user experience would improve with the social media platform. However, Elon Musk’s take over of the company introduced new features to the app, including giving almost anyone willing to pay a premium subscription to become verified—whether they were either popular, influential or not.

With the announcement that the much coveted blue tick would be accessible to anyone who could pay, verification became for sale. However, not all countries where Twitter is accessible could get the subscription—Nigeria and South Africa were two of them.

Twitter is offering a 12% discount to Nigerian users and a 13% discount to South African users if they choose the annual subscription, however, the prices for the subscription, based on device, are not uniform. Those subscribing on their iOS and Android devices pay the flat rate of ₦5,000 and R200.00 monthly, while those subscribing for the web service will pay ₦3,650 and R144.99 monthly.

For those who opt for the annual subscription, they get to pay ₦38,500 and R1,519 for web, while those on iOS and Android devices will pay ₦52,900 and R2,099. This has been the standard mode of pricing across all countries that have access to Twitter Blue.

While many users are contemplating if they’ll subscribe to the service for a blue tick, some are yet to see it on their devices. All they can see, despite being in the location, is that Twitter Blue is not yet available in their country.

Since the SpaceX and Tesla CEO took over the helm of affairs for $44 billion in October 2022, there have been drastic changes at the company, especially with the app. Twitter has split the timeline into two—‘For you’ and ‘Following’— but recently, users complained that they started seeing tweets from people they do not follow or that were retweeted to their timeline.

The latest expansion was confirmed on the Twitter website seen by Ripples Nigeria on Friday.

This microblogging platform added about 20 countries to make the social network’s subscription service available in more than 35 countries across the world.

These new countries include Netherlands, Poland, Ireland, Belgium, Sweden, Romania, Czech Republic, Finland, Denmark, Greece, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Slovakia, Latvia, Slovenia, Estonia, Croatia, Luxembourg, Malta, and Cyprus.

Ripples Nigeria earlier reported that the payment for the service was relaunched and modified about three months ago, seeing regular users pay $8 per month while iPhone users are expected to pay $3 more.

By pooling their knowledge and resources, these two organizations said that they hope to develop smooth, integrated solutions for African e-commerce companies.

Renda bills itself as an African-based provider of enterprise and medium-sized 3rd Party fulfilment solutions that are technology-driven.

The partnership, according to ImaliPay, will support businesses across Africa by “simplifying and streamlining the order fulfillment process” for businesses, starting with Nigeria.

ImaliPay claims that its use of modular API technologies would propel growth, improve efficiency, and foster innovation, making this alliance advantageous for both firms.
