Twitter: edit tweets button

We must remember that the edit tweet button has been the most requested feature from Twitter users for several years. This year, Twitter finally grants the wishes of Internet users. However, the edit tweets button is only available for users of the Twitter Blue service, a paid version of the Twitter social network, whether for Android; for IOS or on the internet. This version of Twitter is only eligible in 4 well-defined countries such as New Zealand, Canada, Australia and the United States. The Twitter company has not yet revealed whether the content editing button will remain exclusively on the Twitter Blue subscription or will extend to all users of the social network. In July, the company raised the subscription price of Twitter Blue and its users all criticized it.

For the happiness of the users of the service of Twitter Blue, the company added the tool of modification of tweets.

Using the "edit" button will allow users of the social network to modify the content of their tweets. It is important to know that only tweets published within 30 minutes can be edited. Effectively, edited tweets will be displayed with a tag that includes a timestamp of the edit. Readers of the tweet will be able to tap on the label and view the edit history.

Reasons Why Twitter Added the Edit Button

Users of the Twitter social network have repeatedly requested the addition of a button that allows editing of tweets after publication. Indeed, users have always wanted to have access to their post in case there are typos, the automatic correction of their keyboard creeps into their tweets… A reality that sometimes turns out to be embarrassing.

As a result, Elon Musk, recently promoted to be one of the administrators of the company Twitter Board, was in favor of adding an "Edit" button to Twitter, as were many users. Since April, Elon Musk has launched a poll on Twitter asking users to vote (for or against) on the addition of a tweet edit button. Tweet after retweet, in particular with the participation of the CEO of Twitter, the opinion of Internet users focused on a " for” on the addition of a tweet edit button on the platform (almost) unanimously. Hence the reason for this new Twitter feature.
