How to Cancel X Premium Subscription (Twitter Blue)

X Premium, which you might know as Twitter Blue, is a paid service that gives you some extra features on the X platform. But if you’ve decided that X Premium isn’t your thing anymore, no worries! It’s super easy to cancel your subscription.

This guide has got you covered. We’ll show you how to cancel your X Premium subscription, step by step, whether you’re on mobile or web.

Overview of Canceling X Premium

If you decide to cancel your X Premium subscription, don’t worry, you’ll still get to use all the Premium features until the end of your current billing period. After that, your subscription won’t renew and you’ll go back to a standard free X account.

Canceling is as simple as going into your X Premium subscription settings and turning off auto-renewal. It’s a quick process that only takes a few minutes.

Here are some things to keep in mind when canceling X Premium:

  • You have to cancel from the same place where you first subscribed – either the mobile app or the web.
  • Once you’ve canceled, you can’t just turn your subscription back on. You’ll have to resubscribe.
  • You won’t get a refund for any leftover time in your subscription period.
  • Your X username will go back to what it was before.
  • You’ll still have your subscriber-only badges on your profile.

After confirming, your X Premium subscription will be set to expire at the end of the current billing period. Just like on mobile, you can continue enjoying Premium benefits until then.

Getting a Refund for X Premium

Unfortunately, X does not offer refunds for Premium subscriptions, unless required by local law. Purchases made on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store may be eligible for refunds based on each store’s policies.

If you believe you qualify for a refund, you’ll need to request one directly from Apple or Google, not X. Provide details on why you’re requesting a refund and they will review your case.

Refund eligibility usually depends on:

  • How recently you subscribed.
  • Whether you used any Premium features.
  • Your payment history.
  • Applicable laws where you live.

But in most cases, X Premium subscriptions are non-refundable, so proceed with caution before signing up.

Why You May Want to Cancel X Premium

There are a few common reasons users decide to cancel their X Premium subscription:

  • It’s no longer affordable. The monthly price may be too high for your budget. Downgrading to a free account will let you still use X’s core features.
  • You’re not using Premium features. If you haven’t used perks like custom icons or advanced analytics much, it could make sense to cancel until you really need them.
  • You want a break from X. Cancelling Premium can pave the way for taking a temporary break from the platform if you need a reset.
  • You prefer other social apps. Perhaps you want to shift more time to Instagram, Facebook, or other networks and don’t need X Premium anymore.
  • You created a secondary account. Some users make a secondary “alt” account and may only want Premium on their primary profile.

No matter the reason, canceling X Premium is quick and straightforward. And you can always resubscribe later!

What Happens When You Cancel X Premium

When your subscription expires after cancellation, here’s what changes with your X account:

  • The blue “Verified” checkmark will be removed.
  • You’ll see more ads in your feed since Premium offers reduced ads.
  • You won’t have access to subscriber-only features like custom app icons, themes, or profile organization.
  • Your tweets and replies will no longer get priority ranking boosts.
  • You can only post tweets up to 280 characters, rather than 25,000 characters.
  • Advanced analytics, real-time updates, and timeline customization via X Pro will go away.

However, some parts of your account stay the same:

  • You keep your followers and following.
  • Your tweets and media remain on your profile.
  • You retain subscriber-only badges on your profile.
  • Your saved tweets and Bookmark folders are still there.
  • Your display name and username don’t change.

Overall, you’ll still have access to X’s core functions, just without Premium perks. And you can always re-subscribe later if you change your mind!
