Twitter is finally getting an edit button, which will be go under testing with Twitter Blue users in the coming months. This is a much-awaited feature that will allow users to edit their tweets after sending if they make a mistake, which does happen and required the user to either delete a tweet or add a thread correcting their mistake.
The company confirmed the development in tweet on Wednesday. “We’ve been working on an edit feature since last year.” Twitter Communications said in their tweet, adding that the new feature will kick off testing within Twitter Blue Labs in the coming months.
For those of you who don’t know, Twitter Blue Labs is a subscription service by the social media giant that provides a few extra features which aren’t available to free users. It gives you advertisement-free articles on support sites, bookmark folders, custom app icons and themes along with a few other things.
Twitter Blue users have already had an “Undo Send” button that allowed them to delete a tweet right after sending it, but the feature has never been provided to free users. However, it is expected that Twitter will provide the ‘Edit Tweet’ button to all users on the platform after it is done testing it with Twitter Blue users.
