Twitter working on an edit button

Washington, April 6 : Twitter confirmed that it is working on an edit button that would allow users to change tweets after they have been posted, the BBC reported on Wednesday. This comes after Tesla boss Elon Musk who joined as the new board member, asked his followers in a Twitter poll whether they wanted the feature. Many users have long called for an edit button but there are concerns about how to execute it. Twitter has informed that it would start testing the idea in the coming months. Users of Twitter Blue, the platform’s subscription service, get early access to features it is testing. Under an edit function users would be able to fix typos or errors in a tweet without losing any replies, retweets or likes it has already gained. Jay Sullivan, the company’s vice president of consumer product, said it had been “the most requested Twitter feature for many years” in a thread on Tuesday. ACL0732
