Twitter is preparing to launch a tweet editing function

The ability to edit tweets after their publication on Twitter is a long-awaited feature for many platform users. It has long been heard, and it seems that this tool can soon be made publicly available. This is evidenced by the first-ever edited tweet published by Twitter developers.

, says the developer's tweet. Under it you can see the time of the last editing. When clicked on this part of the message, you can see what the message was like in the first place. In this case it is a shorter version of an earlier message.

Twitter announced that it would start testing the tweet editing button earlier this month. According to available data, the ability to change the message will be available within 30 minutes of its publication. It is also known that the number of edits for one tweet is limited, but the exact number is not yet known. All users will be able to see previous versions of the tweet even after it is edited, so this function is more suitable to correct typing and other errors than to change the meaning of the message. When the new function can become public, it is not yet known.
