Twitter tests out long-awaited edit button for paid subscribers

Twitter edit button

Later this month, Twitter will roll out their most talked about and requested feature – the edit button, which will be initially available for the Twitter Blue subscribers.

Twitter’s most requested feature – the edit button, is in work with the app’s internal team. Later this month, the beta feature will be initially available for Twitter Blue subscribers. Though the ‘Twitter Edit Button’ won’t be available for the entire app, the rest of the audience will still be able to see if the Tweet has been edited. 

The update that is under work at the moment will let people make changes to their Tweet after it’s been published. Be it typos, missed tags, or others, paid subscribers will be able to rectify these with the newest feature.

With the test in place, users will be able to edit the tweet a few times in the first 30 minutes following the tweet going live. The edited tweet will appear with an icon, timestamp, and label, which will help the readers to recognize that the original Tweet has been modified. Tapping on the label will take them to the Tweet’s Edit History, which will include the past versions of the Tweet. 

With this new feature in place, Twitter hopes to make the app more approachable for users.
