After years of requests, Twitter has finally made editing tweets a reality. To use the feature, you will need to sign up for Twitter Blue, which is a paid membership service.
Twitter Blue Subscribers can now begin editing tweets!
For the longest time, it was just speculation, but Twitter finally confirmed in the beginning of the year that it was working on an edit feature. The company began internal testing before releasing it to the public for the first time last week. The Edit Tweet feature is now available to Twitter Blue subscribers in supported regions. While Twitter’s tweet doesn’t say much, the company has published blog posts that explain how the feature will work.
- The Edit Tweet feature will allow users to correct typos, hashtags, and other issues within 30 minutes of a tweet being published.
- When a tweet is changed, users will be able to see that the tweet has been changed through an icon, a timestamp, and a label.
- In addition, every edited Tweet includes a version history so users can see what changed.
As previously stated, the feature will be available only to Twitter Blue subscribers. If you’re not familiar with Twitter Blue, it’s a subscription service that grants members access to advanced features. While there are numerous benefits, the premium subscription provides access to custom app icons, the ability to undo tweets, bookmark folders, ad-free articles, and other features. Subscribers also gain access to Twitter Labs’ experimental features. Even though the features change, the company is currently offering longer and higher-quality video uploads, NFT profile pictures, editable tweets, and access to its updated Spaces Tab.
Twitter Blue Subscribers Plans
You can subscribe to Twitter Blue if you want to edit your tweets. The service costs $4.99 per month.
The Edit Tweet feature is currently available only in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. Twitter did state that it would be rolled out to those in the United States, but no timetable was provided.
