Twitter's edit button is finally here — but probably not how you hoped

In September 2022, Twitter announced that the Tweet editing function will be open to users of Twitter Blue. This tweet editing function is provided to users as a function in the testing stage only.

On October 3 of the same year, the official version of the tweet editing function was released for Twitter Blue users in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Tweets that have been edited after posting are marked with a pen icon.

And when you open an edited tweet, you'll see the last edit date instead of the posted date. Furthermore, you can see the version history by tapping the last edit date and time. In other words, you can check the tweets before editing properly.

According to TechCrunch, an IT news site, you can only edit a tweet within 30 minutes after posting. Furthermore, the number of times you can edit is limited to 5 times. According to TechCrunch, ``Twitter's restrictions on editing tweets are designed to allow users enough time to correct typos and add hashtags, while still allowing users to significantly alter their tweets and abuse the feature. It may be to prevent this,' he said.

In addition, since Twitter Blue itself is not provided in Japan, there is no plan to implement a tweet editing function at the time of article creation.
