Typos in Tweets will soon be a thing of the past. Twitter is testing a long requested feature — an edit button.
In a blog post, Twitter said that it is currently testing Edit Twitter by their team internally, with plans of initially expanding the feature to Twitter Blue subscribers in the coming weeks. Twitter Blue is a paid subscription service.
Edit Twitter will allow users to edit a Tweet after its been published, an easy fix for typos and misspelled hashtags. Previously, deleting a Tweet is one way to handle such errors.
Tweets can be edited a few times within 30 minutes following publication. Edited Tweets will have 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.
Twitter is testing the feature internally so they can identify and resolve any issue. Later this month, their plan is to open it to Twitter Blue subscribers. Testing will be localized to a single country and further expand from there.
