The most requested feature on Twitter, the “edit button” will soon become available.
Twitter is working on allowing users to edit their tweets after posting them. Users will be able to fix any typos or errors in a tweet without sacrificing any replies, retweets, or likes it’s already accrued.
Twitter plans to begin testing the feature with Twitter Blue subscribers in “the coming months,” the company said Tuesday.
Jay Sullivan, the company’s VP of consumer product, said that editing has been “the most requested Twitter feature for many years” in a thread on Tuesday. The company has been looking into how to build the feature “in a safe manner” since last year.
“This is just one feature we are exploring as we work to give people more choice and control over their Twitter experience, foster a healthy conversation, and help people be more comfortable on Twitter. These are the things that motivate us every day”, Jay Sullivan
