The highly requested edit button will be making its way to Twitter—for paying customers only.
The edit button will be available to subscribers of Twitter Blue, a $4.99 monthly subscription.
Users will have the option to edit tweets up to 30 minutes after posting them. Any edited tweets will be marked as edited. Users will be able to view pre-edited tweets.
Twitter is currently testing the edit button on a select group of users, Bloomberg reports.
If all goes well, the edit button will be available to customers in the coming weeks.
Why it’s news
A Twitter edit button has been highly requested by Twitter users for years. The company has been slow to move, concerned that users could post outrageous content to go viral, only to edit the tweet once the poster has the desired attention.
The requested edit button gained more attention recently when Elon Musk tweeted a poll, asking users if they would like an edit button.
Twitter quickly responded, saying it was already testing an edit button before Musk’s poll.
Musk’s tweet came shortly after announcing his purchase of a stake in the company and shortly before attempting to purchase the social media site.
