The Chief of Memes at Twitter, Elon Musk himself, has wasted no time in shaking things up. After a cost-cutting rampage that included firing top executives and laying off a large percentage of staff, Musk quickly implemented an $8/monthly subscription to obtain the heralded “blue check” for verified accounts.
Is it a genius money-making scheme? Irresponsible billionaire playing dangerous games? Whatever you think, no matter your political affiliation, there is one age-old conflict that “Twitter Blue” is accentuating: iPhone vs Android.
Twitter Blue is currently for iOS users only, leaving Android users in the dust, and Apple fanboys frothing at the mouth making memes about basement dwellers without $8 to spare.
When will Android get Twitter Blue?
How long it takes Twitter to launch Twitter Blue to Android users remains to be seen, but buckle up- the entire fate of Twitter seems up in the air as Elon Musk seems dead set on running the company like a nimble, risk-taking startup rather than one of the world’s largest and most influential companies.
