Later this month, if you’re ready to pay to test it, Twitter will launch its edit button.

Finally, it has occurred. Twitter is providing an edit button to users later this month, after years of waiting and innumerable typos.

Earlier this year, Twitter first hinted that an edit button will be added to its platform; today, users can actually utilize it. Later this month, Twitter will start granting certain users access to the edit button as a result of continuing internal testing of the service.

According to an blog post describing the functionality, users will be able to alter their tweets up to three times in the first 30 minutes after sending them. The idea is to enable users to edit tweets without starting over to correct mistakes or add missing tags.

Our Dylan Roussel discovered that this displays in the typical tweet interface, but with an update button in place of the typical tweet button, as shown in the image below. Additionally, he learned that tweets can be edited up to five times.

When a tweet is edited, a last edited notification appears beneath the tweet. Tapping this notification reveals a complete history of the adjustments made. According to Twitter, these are crucial because they preserve the conversation’s integrity and maintain a record of the changes for the public.

What’s the problem? Only Twitter Blue subscribers, who receive early access to new features as a perk of their subscription, will be able to use the edit button during testing. Twitter Blue’s monthly cost had been $2.99 until it recently increased to $4.99. Twitter claims that at first, testers will only be in one country, however at this time, it is unclear whose nation this will be.

However, as an extra bonus, Twitter Blue subscribers also have access to ad-free content on 9to5Google and throughout our whole network, which includes 9to5Mac, Electrek, and more!
