On Thursday, Twitter announced that it will finally implement one of the most requested features, the ability to edit tweets.
The edit tweet function is currently being tested internally, but it will first be available to Twitter Blue subscribers later this month, which means you’ll need to pay for the service’s monthly subscription to use it. Twitter Blue is currently priced at $4.99 per month.
If there is enough demand, it could assist Twitter in generating new revenue through its subscription service, which currently offers ad-free articles, custom app icons, themes, bookmark folders, and other features.
According to a release, the edit tweet option will allow users to fix text and add tags to a tweet within 30 minutes of its initial publication. An edited tweet will have a label, icon, and timestamp indicating that it has been modified, and users can tap the label to view the edit history and see previous versions.
The time limit and version history, according to the company, will create a public record of what was said and “protect the integrity of the conversation.”
if you see an edited Tweet it's because we're testing the edit button
this is happening and you'll be okay
