Twitter has confirmed that an edit button is coming soon to the platform for users and this new update gives us a better idea about the feature.

Twitter is finally bringing the edit tweet feature for users, but hang on before you get excited. The option is available on the micro-blogging platform but only for select users as of now. The platform seems to be testing the feature before rolling out publicly, which could happen in the coming weeks or months.

The update comes via a tipster called Mukul Sharma this week, who also mentioned that the edit tool is currently being tested for specific cases, like when a user tweets something objectionable on the platform. His post includes a screenshot of the edit option being tested and users see it at the bottom of a tweet when the content is abusive, harmful or offensive.

The option to edit the content of the tweet instead of deleting it seems like a smart move from the platform.


Twitter seems to be also testing its own like feature and people get to use it for liking any post. The platform also could add a dislike/downvote button which is a refreshing change from offering like the heart button for tweets.

Coming back to the main subject, which is the edit button, Twitter has confirmed that it is bringing the edit feature to the platform soon, but we didn’t get a timeline from the company. The reports about its testing with a select group suggest the feature is getting a gradual push, and Twitter is probably keen to make sure the feature has its heart in the right place.

We’ve previously seen the edit feature with an edit history drop-down box, giving you a timeline of the changes made in the tweet by the user. Elon Musk is also busy tackling the complex issues of buying out Twitter for a reported deal worth $44 billion, and Musk also has been clamouring for the edit feature like millions of others who use the platform.
