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.
