Soon, many more people will be able to do what was once unthinkable: edit tweets. Twitter has begun rolling out its new tweet editing feature to Twitter Blue subscribers in the United States. Expansion follows earlier this week in Canada, New Zealand and Australia.
That special feature gives users a 30-minute window to make changes to their tweets. A version history is also available so others – regardless of whether they subscribe to Twitter Blue – can see a record of any changes made.
Currently, the feature is part of Twitter’s $4.99/month subscription service, which also provides access to NFT profile photos and other special features. The company hasn’t confirmed if the edit button will ever be available outside of Twitter Blue, although the feature is categorized as part of “Twitter Blue Labs,” and Twitter has previously said that some “Labs” features will eventually become more widely available .
Twitter first announced it was working on the long-awaited edit button, following a poll by Elon Musk, who recently became the company’s largest shareholder. The company said its work on an edit button predated Musk’s involvement with Twitter, which Musk’s newly released version seemed to confirm. Interestingly, Musk’s messages also indicated that he was (to put it mildly) by Twitter Blue, at least in its original form. No word yet on whether he has the edit button.
