People have been crying out for a way to edit tweets for years now, perhaps ever since Twitter’s inception. And now there finally is one. In testing.
Still, that’s a huge step for Twitter, and the edit button is expected to be released more widely before the end of this month. Only in this case “more widely” means to those who subscribe to Twitter Blue, the $4.99 per month service that gives access to premium features.
It’s also where you can get early access to new features, like the upcoming edit button. The test will be “localized to a single country at first” and expand later.
In conclusion, the Edit Tweet feature will only be available to paying Twitter Blue subscribers. That means us common folk will need to live with our embarrassing typos for a while longer. Twitter is limiting the use of its Edit Tweet function as a way to incorporate direct feedback and resolve any issues that pop up. Later this month, Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to use this feature.
