SAN FRANCISCO: Twitter has said a feature to edit tweets is being rolled out to those subscribing to its Blue service in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
The long-awaited editing tool test “went well,” so it is being made more widely available, the San Francisco based tech firm said in a tweet, adding that it is “coming soon” to the United States.
“Edit Tweet is a feature that lets people make changes to their Tweet after it’s been published,” the company said on its blog. “Think of it as a short period of time to do things like fix typos, add missed tags, and more.”
The tool will let users edit a tweet up to five times within 30 minutes of initially posting, Twitter said.
An icon looking like a slanted pen or pencil will indicate that a tweet has been edited, and a “version history” will be available to show what was changed, Twitter said.
Twitter Blue subscriptions are priced at $5 monthly, according to the company’s website.
