The edit feature is Twitter’s most requested feature to date. Twitter shared an update on its progress and gave people on the platform a heads up that, even if they’re not in a test group, all users will still be able to see if a Tweet has been edited.
Edit Tweet is a feature that lets people make changes to their Tweet after it’s been published. For this test, Tweets will be able to be edited a few times in the 30 minutes following their publication. Edited Tweets will appear with an icon, timestamp, and label so it’s clear to readers that the original Tweet has been modified. Tapping the label will take viewers to the Tweet’s Edit History, which includes past versions of the Tweet.
For context, the time limit and version history play an important role here. They help protect the integrity of the conversation and create a publicly accessible record of what was said.
Later this month, September 2022, Twitter will roll out testing to smaller groups to identify issues in a single country and will expand further in the future. Twitter rolls-out testing of most requested update: The Edit Button
