Finally Twitter Starts Testing An Edit Button


The micro-blogging site Twitter has begun testing the much-awaited edit button for select users confirming the feature through a tweet.

“If you see an edited Tweet it’s because we’re testing the edit button,” the company noted in the tweet.

The company confirmed that the edit tweets option will be rolled out to Twitter Blue subscribers later this month.

Notably, Twitter Blue is still not officially available in India. So, with the edit button coming in, we can also expect the subscription to launch in the country very soon.

Twitter has also said that the edit button will be available only for people who are willing to pay for it. This simply means that the option will not be available free of cost like any other features offered by the platform.

In an official blog post, the company clarified that initially the edit option will be rolled out only for Twitter Blue subscribers.

“Edit Tweet is being tested by our team internally. The test will then be initially expanded to Twitter Blue subscribers in the coming weeks. Given that this is our most requested feature to date, we wanted to both update you on our progress and give you and a heads up that, even if you’re not in a test group, everyone will still be able to see if a Tweet has been edited,” the microblogging site noted in the blog post.

Now, this simply means that the edit button will not be available for all users, at least in the initial days.

With the coming of the edit button, Twitter users (who get access to the feature in the testing stage) will be able to make changes to their tweets after posting them. The edit feature is going to be of great help to users who make a lot of typos in their tweets or ones who ever want to add more to their tweets after publishing them. But, there’s a catch.
