For many years Twitter users have been requesting and demanding for a feature that would allow them to edit their Tweet. After enough wait, the social network is finally testing the feature. Twitter mentioned in a Tweet that some of the users might see edited Tweets in their feeds as it is testing the ‘edit’ button. The company assured that this is happening and it will be ok. Twitter in a blog post on September 1, 2022 wrote that the edited Tweets are being tested on an internal basis and it would soon be rolled out to the subscribers of its paid Twitter Blue service later in September, 2022.
The new feature will first be rolled out to the Twitter Blue users in New Zealand, Australia and Canada and soon will also be launched in the United States. However, the users outside the test group will also be able to see the edited Tweets on the platform. It was in the month of April, 2022 when the company had informed that it was testing the edit feature since a year and that it would soon be available for Twitter Blue subscribers within a few months. The announcement was made on the same day when it had said that it would be adding Elon Musk to the board.
Musk had polled his followers if they would want to have an edit button. When the feature was confirmed the company clarified that they did not get the idea of the edit button from the poll. If things workout as planned, it would be a good change for the Twitter Blue users to have an edit button. But it was not clarified if the feature would also be added to the rest of the users.
Talking about musk, he had retracted from the board seat offer and had agreed to buy Twitter outright. But soon the deal was terminated and now a lawsuit between the firm and Musk is pending.
