After publishing a tweet, eligible users will get a 30-minute window to modify their tweet. However, a tweet can be edited only a few times. Edited tweets will include an icon, timestamp, and label to make it clear that the original tweet has been edited. Readers will be able to tap the label and view the tweet’s edit history, including the past versions of the tweet.

Twitter Blue subscribers will receive early access to the Edit Tweet feature later this month as a part of their subscription. “The test will be localized to a single country at first and expand as we learn and observe how people use Edit Tweet,” explains Twitter in a blog post.

Twitter Blue subscription is currently available in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States. The subscription costs USD 4.99 (around Rs. 400) in the United States and comes with premium features, including Undo Tweet and a customizable navigation bar.

It’s true: Edit Tweet is being tested by our team internally. The test will then be initially expanded to Twitter Blue subscribers in the coming weeks. Given that this is our most requested feature to date, we wanted to both update you on our progress and give you a heads up that, even if you’re not in a test group, everyone will still be able to see if a Tweet has been edited.
