Twitter finally launches an edit button – but there’s one big caveat

What you need to know

  • Twitter has revealed that it is currently testing an edit button with a small group of users.
  • The in-demand feature will roll out to Twitter Blue subscribers later this month.
  • Despite the limited testing, anyone can see if a tweet has been modified.

Twitter is finally rolling out an edit button after years of shunning a much-requested feature that’s long been available on other platforms, and it’ll come first for paying Twitter Blue subscribers.

in a unexpected announcement (opens in new tab), Twitter has confirmed that the tweet editing feature is currently being tested internally by a small group of users. Later this month, the capability will be available to premium users who have the privilege of early access to limited features.
