New Delhi, Sept. 11 — Twitter recently announced it was testing an Edit Button, adding that once the feature becomes operational, it will be available for 30 minutes after a tweet is posted, allowing users to make changes to the post.
The service was simultaneously rolled out among a select group of users for feedback, and the company said that only for the test, tweets will be open for editing ‘a few times’ in this half-hour duration.
Now, according to reports, the tech giant has said that users will be able to edit a single post a maximum of five times.
Twitter’s Edit Button feature
Twitter describes the feature as a ‘short period of time to do things like fix typos, add missed tags, and more’. Edited tweets will appear with an icon, a timestamp and label so that it’s clear to readers that the original post has been modified, the company had noted in its statement announcing this service.
On tapping the label, readers will be able to access the tweet’s edit history, including all previous versions of the post, the release also stated.
The Edit Button is ‘one of our most requested feature to date’, Twitter said.
