As expected to cut down on fake verified accounts and scammers/spammers from impersonating verified accounts, Twitter has announced a 90-day waiting period for new Twitter accounts before they can subscribe to Twitter Blue.

Twitter has published a policy change saying that newly-created Twitter accounts will have to wait 90 days before being allowed to subscribe to the new Twitter Blue plan and get verified. This is likely to avoid impersonation and spam from verified accounts.

“Newly created Twitter accounts will not be able to subscribe to Twitter Blue for 90 days. We may also impose waiting periods for new accounts in the future at our discretion without notice,” the company said on its FAQ page about Twitter Blue.

While this is a step in the right direction, Twitter Blue is still only available for Apple users. Android and web users still can not get Twitter Blue.  New Twitter Blue subscriptions are expected to resume on November 29th (or may be earlier…may be later).
