How to subscribe to Twitter Blue?

Woo hoo! Today, Monday, December 12, 2022 Twitter Blue officially relaunched allow those who meet the eligibility requirements to be able to subscribe if they want to.

The eligibility requirements follow as:

  • Accounts must be 90 days or older.
  • Changing anything on your account such as the following your username i.e. @ name, display name MyNane, website, bio, profile image, background image will automatically make your account ineligible to be able to subscribe and you will need to wait seven days.

If you find the subscription link and your account is not eligible you will receive a message that reads “Sorry, your account is not eligible for Twitter Blue at this time. Please try subscribing again in the future.”

Just a heads up about a few things:

  • Subscribing to Twitter Blue is 100% optional NOT required or mandatory. Twitter is still free and you will still be able to continue to use Twitter as you did before.
  • Disposable phone numbers, phone numbers from Google voice or voice over IP won’t be accepted for verification.

Lets get started

In the photo below there is really not much to say other than that they’re emphasizing that you need to have a valid phone number in order to begin the subscription for Twitter blue.

In the photo below you see that it is asking for you to enter your password, and your password and you will then be able to continue.

You will need to select your country and you’ll need to enter the mobile phone number. (As I mentioned above disposable phone numbers, google voice, voice over IP phone numbers will not work.)

as seen in the photo below it is asking you to confirm if this is the phone number you want to verify with or if you need to make a correction such as you entered an incorrect phone number. If this is the correct phone number, click on OK to continue.
