Twitter begins testing long-awaited edit button
Twitter has announced that it soon will begin testing its long-awaited Edit Tweet feature, which will allow paying Twitter Blue subscribers the ability to tap a button to change the text in tweets after they have been posted.
In a post on Thursday, Twitter said the Edit Tweet tool is being tested internally, before the test expands to Twitter Blue subscribers in the coming weeks.
During the test period, tweets will be able to be edited “a few times” in the 30 minutes following their publication. Edited Tweets will appear with an icon, timestamp, and label so it’s clear to readers that the original tweet was been modified. Tapping the label will take viewers to the Tweet’s Edit History, which includes past versions of the tweet.
Twitter announced the new Edit Tweet feature in April, with the company saying today it is intended to give users a chance to add things like fix typos, add missed tags, and more, shortly after a tweet has been shared.
