Now that it’s official, it will be possible to change your tweets after they’ve been published. A feature that has been waiting for many years and is about to enter the testing phase… But it’s only a paid version of the social network for Twitter Blue users. At this time, it is unknown whether other members will also have access to the Edit button.
For a long time, this was an ongoing joke on Twitter. Almost every April 1, the social network, arrival of an Edit button, aware that the latter is regularly requested by the community. And for good reason: It’s particularly infuriating to notice a small typo in your text a few hours after it’s posted, without doing anything but deleting the tweet. Be that as it may, it’s an April 1 tradition: Twitter has announced that it’s once again working on a way to organize its tweets.
except this time this is not a joke. Today, Twitter officially confirmed that the ability to edit your tweets is on the horizon. After more than a year of work, the feature is about to be deployed in the testing phase. However, do not rejoice too quickly. Indeed, only Twitter Blue users, paid version of the social network may have access to it. At first the idea is to first of all check if the famous button is against the platform’s values.
