The Edit button- one of the most talked about features from Twitter, is now being made available for Twitter Blue users in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, with an arrival slated for the US soon.
Available to Twitter Blue subscribers only, the feature will now give users the ability to edit tweets. The rollout came after the company posted its first-ever edited tweet on its official handle. The tweet was edited after it was posted by the Twitter Blue account, last week.
As it stands, an edited tweet will appear as normal, but there will be a pencil icon next to the date, along with text that lets readers know the last time the tweet was edited. Clicking on the icon shows you a page with the edited tweet, as well as a history of the edits. The person who tweeted will have up to 30 minutes to make changes and will only be able to make five edits, according to a Twitter support document.
According to the document, the feature is currently still in testing, and it can be accessed in the Labs section of Twitter Blue, which costs $4.99 a month. Users will also only be able to edit certain types of tweets; things like replies, threads, retweets, and pinned tweets, among others.
