Twitter has announced that it will develop a new edit button on the microblogging site. This feature will initially be available to Twitter Blue subscribers in selected countries before being widespread. However, Twitter will reportedly limit users to five edits within this period.
According to a TechCrunch analysis, Twitter claimed that the new edit feature will allow users to edit their tweets only five times in a matter of 30 minutes. During this period, they may correct typos, upload media files, and modify tags.
In the report, the edit button will be initially available to Twitter Blue subscribers in New Zealand. Twitter is apparently observing user behaviour with this new feature. It is also imagining that the edit limit should be changed within the specified period.
Twitter will apparently release this feature for Twitter Blue users in Australia, Canada, and the United States. There have been concerns that the edit feature might help to spread political misinformation or crypto scams. However, these use cases can only be investigated once the feature is accessible to a wider audience.
Twitter revealed details on the edit button last week. It has been confirmed that an edited tweet will be marked with an icon, label, and timestamp to indicate that it has been changed. Besides, users will be able to check the edit history of the tweet along with the original post. Twitter has also unveiled the undo feature that allows users to delete a tweet within thirty seconds of hitting the send button.
