There are already some aspects of the edition of a tweet with which people gradually became familiar. For example, Twitter has already explained that if the function is available, users can edit their tweets up to 30 minutes After they are published, and finally it is so.

On the other hand, a few weeks ago it came to light that users can only edit their tweets five times during this period. Of course, we must bear in mind that this Tweets editing function creates a new entry when edited, and all changes are saved in a kind of editing history.

Precisely, you can see the history of these changes by clicking on ‘Last edition’. It appears at the bottom of the publication and also shows the time when the owner of the tweet changed the content.

A function that was waiting, and that Twitter had been in it for a while

The new Tweets button, again, is only available in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Also only for users with Twitter Blue subscription, a pay version of the platform with exclusive features from USD $ 5 per month.

Twitter has confirmed that the button will soon be available in USA And soon it will reach other countries.

The ability to edit tweets is not a new feature. The platform has been working in this function for years. They confirmed the next availability just a few months ago when Elon Musk announced his intention to buy the company behind the social network.

Since then, Twitter has been testing in some of its official accounts how the claimed function should be seen. This, initially, created a kind of controversy In users. Particularly, in the fact that the ability to edit tweets allowed people to create unnecessary problems or disturbances in the social network.

For example, publish a tweet that can then be edited with content that completely contradicts the original. However, this was solved not only by the editing history, but also by the time limit.
