Edit Tweet Feature

Twitter recently launched the first stage of live testing of the ‘Edit Tweet’ feature which is the top most requested feature by Twitter users in very long years. Edit Tweet is a feature that helps people make changes to their Tweets if there are any typos, missed tags, images, videos, and other facts missing within 30 minutes after its published. 

The edit tweet function is tested internally by the Twitter developers team and will be rolling out for Twitter Blue subscribers later this month. Twitter Blue currently costs $4.99 per month.

Now, this service is available for only selected Twitter Blue users and that too in the USA, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand regions users. So India and other country users will wait for a few more months to get this awesome feature.

How does Twitter Edit Feature Work?

“For this test, 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 has been modified. Tapping the label will take viewers to the Tweet’s Edit History, which includes past versions of the Tweet.”

An edited tweet will have a label, icon, and timestamp to notify the user that it has been modified, and so that users can tap the label to view the tweet’s edit history and that past versions of the tweet. The main reason for a time limit and tweet edit history is publicly accessible to protect the integrity of the conversation. 

Back in July, Twitter announced a 67% price increase for Twitter Blue subscriptions. So this Tweet edit feature could see overall Blue revenue jump as a result. 

Can I Edit All My Old Tweets?

No. Twitter will not let you edit your old tweets. You will only be able to do multiple edits on a tweet up to 30 minutes after it is posted.

Twitter Edit Button

After very long years of begging, Twitter has confirmed that it is working on an edit button that would allow users to change tweets after they have been posted. It’s a feature that Twitter users have been requesting for so long that it’s become meme material, but now it’s going to become a reality. On April Fool’s Day, Twitter tweeted that they were working on an edit button. Thankfully, it was not just a joke. 

This edit button will allow users to fix any typos or errors in a tweet without removing any replies, retweets, or likes it’s already received. Twitter plans to begin testing the feature with Twitter Blue subscribers in “the coming months,” the company’s VP Jay Sullivan said Tuesday.

Elon Musk Buys Twitter Shares

On Monday (Apr-4-2022), Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk became Twitter’s largest shareholder when he bought 9.2% of the company and he was officially invited to join the board. He tweeted “do you want an edit button?” to his 80 million followers on the previous day he was invited to join Twitter’s board of members. The poll has already gained over four million votes and it has a vote of 73.5% in favor of an edit button.

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal quote tweeted, saying, “The consequences of this poll will be important. Please vote carefully.”

Twitter’s former CEO, Jack Dorsey, was hesitant to add such a feature in the past. During a talk in 2018 about the Twitter edit button, Dorsey expressed concern that an edit button could let users change a tweet’s meaning after it gets widely shared, and in 2020 he said Twitter would “probably never” add the feature.

The company already has an undo feature that lets you recall a tweet before you send it, though it’s only available for Twitter Blue subscribers which is a perk-packed premium monthly subscription service. Twitter blue users get early access to the edit button testing feature option.
