the modification of tweets after publication is coming!

Hostile to this idea for many years, Twitter finally agreed to respond favorably to a recurring request from its users, if only to correct spelling mistakes. Last April, the microblogging social network confirmed that it was working on a tweet editing button.

Today Twitter announcement carry out internal tests for a device which will therefore allow the modification of messages after their publication. A feature that is introduced as Edit Tweet.

As many times as desired, Edit Tweet allows you to edit tweets within 30 minutes of posting them. If applicable, the affected tweets are accompanied by an icon and a timestamp to indicate that the original message has been modified. Moreover, it will be possible to have access to previous versions of messages.

What about paying Twitter subscribers?

With such precautions, Twitter justifies that the integrity of a conversation will be protected and everyone will be able to see what was said thanks to an archiving.

After internal testing, the Edit Tweet functionality will be extended over the next few weeks to Twitter Blue subscribers. This is Twitter’s paid subscription which is currently available in the US ($4.99 per month since an increase in July), Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

At the moment, Twitter only mentions Edit Tweet as part of its Twitter Blue subscription. It’s unclear if this feature will eventually come to mainstream Twitter users. It doesn’t seem to be going that way in the near future.
