On September 21, Twitter could start a larger test of its Edit Tweet feature

For years, Twitter users have clamoured for an edit button. For many users of the network, the inability to fix a typo has been a major source of frustration. However, Twitter announced at the start of the month that it would start testing the feature with Twitter Blue subscribers, so at last, our prayers were heard. It looks like the movie will start coming out to a much bigger audience on September 21.

Platformer's Casey Newton tweeted that the public could begin to use the function as early as next week. While the announcement may make you happy, he was keen to point out that it would only be available to Twitter Blue subscribers. Newton was shown internal documents that stated that even while a public roll out is planned, it will likely only affect individuals who are already registered in the program. This implies that, for the time being, you will need to pay at least $4.99 a month if you want to try out the Edit Tweet function.

What benefits does a Twitter Blue subscription receive, then? Users may now access features including themes, ad-free content, bookmark folders, and custom app icons. Users will also have access to Twitter Blue Labs, a collection of unreleased experimental features. Users can currently access lengthier and higher quality video uploads, NFT profile images, and the freshly updated Spaces tab, albeit these features frequently change. The ability to modify tweets will just be the icing on the cake if all of that seems worth the cost.

Twitter has several regulations about edits during the test of its Edit Tweet tool, albeit not all of the terms are official just yet. Currently, tweets have a 30-minute grace period when they can be changed a few times. There will be a symbol, a timestamp, and a label indicating that a tweet has been modified. For those who are interested in the specific modifications made, tapping on the label will provide the tweet edit history. As long as the tweet is still live, users can examine the edit history. It appears that we are only one step away at this time. However, it is currently unknown whether or not the general public will ever be able to use this feature.
