Twitter Releases Long-Awaited Edit Button – But Only For Paying Customers

Twitter has finally launched its long-awaited edit button, but only in beta testing and only among paying customers.

The feature is currently being tested internally by Twitter but will be expanded to users of Twitter Blue, the company’s subscription service, by the end of September.

Users will be allowed to edit a tweet a few times within 30 minutes after sending it out.

Much like Facebook, Twitter will place an edited icon beside an edited tweet, so “it’s clear to readers that the original Tweet has been modified,” the company said in a blog post. Tapping the label will take viewers to the tweet’s Edit History, showing past versions of the post.

“We’re hoping that, with the availability of Edit Tweet, Tweeting will feel more approachable and less stressful,” the company said. “You should be able to participate in the conversation in a way that makes sense to you, and we’ll keep working on ways that make it feel effortless to do just that.”

The company also revealed why editing a Tweet is limited to 30 minutes after you send it out.

“Think of it as a short period of time to do things like fix typos, add missed tags, and more,” the company said. According to Twitter, the time limit and version history “help protect the integrity of the conversation and create a publicly accessible record of what was said.”
