Twitter rolls out ‘Edit Tweet’ button for paid subscribers

Tech NewsTwitter rolls out 'Edit Tweet' button for paid subscribers

Twitter is testing a widely requested edit button for the first time, a feature that will be rolled out to paid subscribers in the coming weeks, the microblogging site announced on Thursday.

This comes after years of debate both internally and externally as to whether the “edit” feature was a good idea for a product known for making posts go viral.

Subscribers who pay $4.99 per month for Twitter Blue will soon be able to edit their tweets “a few times” within 30 minutes of publication, Twitter said in a blog post.

Edited tweets will have an icon and timestamp to display when the post was last edited. Users will be able to click on the label of an edited tweet to view the edit history and previous versions of the post.

Twitter has experimented with versions of an edit button.

Subscribers of Twitter Blue, the company’s paid subscription product, currently have access to a feature that holds tweets for up to one minute, allowing users to review the tweet and “undo” it before the post is published.

Nearly every other social media platform, including Meta Platform’s Facebook and Instagram, Reddit and Pinterest, have for years offered features allowing users to edit posts.
