After a long time of receiving numerous requests from users for an edit option for tweets, Twitter is now finally testing the feature. However, the functionality is limited to Twitter Blue subscribers only for now.
Considering Twitter’s recent decision on raising the price of Twitter Blue subscription, the integration of the tweet edit option seems to have been part of the plan, so as to boost users’ interest in Twitter Blue.
The edit option hype began in April when Twitter’s then anticipated shareholder Elon Musk shared a poll on Twitter asking people if they wanted an edit button. Shortly after, Twitter confirmed that it had started to work on the feature.

Initially, Twitter had resisted developing the edit functionality due to various considerations regarding its workability. It seems now that the company has figured a way to manage the potential issues.
All that’s left to see now is whether or not the new edit feature will prove to be worthy enough as compared to people’s intense response towards it.
