Twitter has confirmed that edited tweets are in testing
Edited tweets are now being tested by Twitter, and the company has announced that the feature will be available to some Twitter Blue subscribers over the next few weeks. Edited tweets are considered by many Twitter users to be the holy grail of the platform. On the platform, each of us has inevitably found ourselves in a position in which we have hastily tweeted something but it contains a significant typo. However, by the time that we became aware of it, it was already too late to delete it.
This appears to be about to change since Twitter has published a blog post (opens in a new tab) that explains how the edited tweet functionality will operate. Users will be able to edit a tweet for up to 30 minutes after it has been posted, with a label being added to tweets that have been changed. However, because the feature is still in testing, some things may change, such as the 30-minute time limit, which may be shortened or extended depending on feedback. For the time being, however, it will allow users to edit a tweet for up to 30 minutes after it has been posted.
subscribers in the upcoming weeks. However, due to the fact that this subscription service is currently only offered in the United States of America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, users in the United Kingdom and users in other countries will not be able to participate in the test. Regardless, it is a nice sight to have more confirmation that altered tweets are now being worked on and will soon be available to some users. This could be the most significant shift in the way that we use Twitter that has occurred in the past few years.
