Twitter has decided to comply with user requests to be able to edit posts that have already been published and has begun testing buttons that can intervene in submitted Tweets. According to the BBC News server, in the coming weeks, it will introduce this option for subscribers to its $4.99 (123 crowns) monthly Twitter Blue service.
The edit button is one of the most requested features from network users. You can edit your Tweet as many times as you like for 30 minutes after you send it.
Twitter Blue is currently available in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. However, initial testing of the edit button he is limited to one country only.
Edited tweets are displayed with an icon, a timestamp and a link to their edit history to protect the integrity of the conversation and create a public record of what was said, the company said in a blog post.
The company’s co-founder and former CEO, Jack Dorsey, previously claimed the company probably wouldn’t offer such an option. In an April poll, 73.6% of 4.4 million participants said they wanted a similar button. However, some users find it unnecessary or against the spirit of the platform.
