One thing that hasn’t changed since Twitter was launched in 2006 is the fact that users can’t modify their tweets after they’ve been published.
As of Tuesday, though, the corporation said that it has been working on the long-awaited Edit button.
The Twitter team has been working on a tool to edit tweets “since last year,” according to the company’s TwitterComms page. To get a glimpse of the new button, you may touch on the three dots that appear next to a tweet’s name.
Users will now be allowed to alter a tweet’s content after it has been posted, even though the specifics of how the function works are still unknown. Twitter users have been clamoring for an Edit button for quite some time. Some customers, though, seem to have an issue with the plan.
Notably, Elon Musk had just become Twitter’s biggest shareholder the day before. When Elon Musk polled his Twitter followers to see whether they wanted a button to modify their tweets, 73% of them responded yes.
Do you want an edit button?

Twitter Blue Labs, which provides beta features to Twitter Blue users, will be the first to introduce the Edit button, according to Twitter. Before making the button widely accessible, the business intends to “learn what works, what doesn’t, and what is conceivable.”
Is that something you’d want to see on Twitter? Is there anything else you’d want to tell us?
