Twitter, the popular social media platform, has announced that an editing feature will be available to subscribers of its premium Twitter Blue service later this month.

The announcement on Twitter on September 1 comes after years of user requests for such a feature.

According to the company, it has been testing the feature internally and has confirmed that it is one of the most requested features to date.

Is it possible to edit all tweets?

After publishing a tweet, users will have 30 minutes to make changes to their 280-character messages, such as fixing typos or adding hashtags.

According to the announcement, those who have the capability will be able to edit “a few times” within the time limit.

Tweets that have been edited will be labeled with an icon and a timestamp.

Users can then search for previous versions of the tweet by tapping the label.

Twitter stated that it is testing the edit feature with a small group of users in order to identify and resolve any issues.

The business wrote in a blog post, “This includes how users may abuse the feature.” “You can never be too careful,”

Twitter teased that the edit feature would eventually be made available to all users. Testing allows the company to better understand how it affects how people use Twitter, as well as “plan for and anticipate what might happen if we bring it to everyone,” according to spokeswoman Stephanie Cortez.
