Twitter Inc will be rolling out a widely requested edit button to its paid subscribers in the coming weeks
On Thursday, Twitter Inc. said it will roll out a widely needed edit button to its paying users in the coming weeks.
For years, Twitter users have asked to be able to edit their tweets after they’ve been posted to fix misspellings. The demands sparked jokes online that Company would rather launch any other product, such as a newsletter before it offers users the features they desperately need.
The company said in a blog post that subscribers who pay $4.99 a month for Twitter Blue will soon be able to edit their tweets “multiple times” within 30 minutes of posting.
Almost every other social media platform, including Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, and Pinterest in the Meta Platform, has been offering features that allow users to edit posts for years.
The San Francisco-based company is locked in a legal battle with billionaire Elon Musk, who is trying to undo a $44 billion deal to buy Twitter.
In April, the same day Musk revealed his 9% stake in Company, he tweeted a poll asking his millions of followers if they wanted an edit button. More than 70% agreed.
Twitter and its moderators debate whether allowing modified tweets could lead to harmful effects, such as the spread of misinformation.
Edited Tweets will contain an icon and timestamp to show when the post was last modified. Users will be able to click on an edited Tweet tag to view the editing history and previous versions of that post.
The company has experimented with a version of the edit button. Subscribers to the company’s paid subscription product, Twitter Blue, currently have access to a feature that saves tweets for up to a minute, allowing users to review and “undo” a tweet before it is posted.
When asked if the edit button will eventually be available to all Twitter users, a spokeswoman said she was testing the feature to “predict what might happen if we make it available to everyone.”
