Twitter edit button is coming! You will be amazed by reading the details
A Twitter representative, Lauren Alexander, said USA TODAY, “We want to make sure we get it right as this is our most requested feature to date. We want to quickly determine how this new feature is being utilised and how it affects how users read and create Tweets from testing.
According to Jay Sullivan, general manager of consumer and revenue product at Twitter, the editing feature is intended to reduce the stress associated with tweeting, particularly for people who don’t tweet as frequently.
All Twitter users will be able to see if a tweet has been altered, despite the fact that the service will initially only be accessible to Twitter Blue members, according to Twitter’s release.
How Twitter edit button will work
After a tweet is initially posted, users have 30 minutes to make as many edits as they’d like. According to Twitter, modified tweets will be clearly marked with an emblem, time stamp, and label. Users can view earlier iterations of the tweet by on the label.
In order to “help safeguard the integrity of the dialogue and create a publicly available record of what was said,” Twitter stated the time restriction and version history features were essential.
In its rollout, the business promised to monitor any “misuse” of the tool.
The edit function gained more attention in the wake of Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, failing to acquire Twitter. He had argued in favour of an edit feature.
The functionality was first teased by Twitter in April.
