This is a 12% discount when compared to the monthly cost paid to the Blue subscription, at $8 a month and this could be even more if the user subscribes through the Twitter iOS app. This move from Twitter is probably due to it’s tumbling financial situation. Thus, an advance of funds could offset some of it’s raising costs.
