People have wanted edited tweets for years.
Twitter (TWTR) said Thursday morning in a tweet (of course) that it is testing the long-awaited edit button, and as a result, users may start to see revised tweets in their feed.
The company gave us their word that everything would be all right despite the fact that it was happening.
The company stated on Monday that it is testing the ability to edit tweets and will roll out the capability to Twitter Blue members later this month.
This week’s announcement. New Zealand Twitter Blue users will be the first to participate; Australia, Canada, and the U.S. will follow.
Not just the people participating in the beta test will be able to see edited tweets; all users of the service will be able to see them.
Twitter said in April that its edit tool had been in development for the previous year and will be made available to users of Twitter Blue in the next months.
Twitter Blue members will be able to use the tool. The announcement of the news came on the same day that Elon Musk was joined to the board of directors of the firm.
It was also the result of a survey that Elon Musk had conducted among his followers, in which he asked whether or not they want an edit button.
When it was revealed that an edit tool was going to be developed, Twitter responded by saying “no, we didn’t get the suggestion through a poll.”
