“If you see an edited Tweet it is because we are testing the edit button. This is happening and you will be fine”, can be read in an official tweet from the social network translated into Spanish.

In the coming weeks they assure that it will be extended to the Twitter Blue usersTwitter’s paid subscription, available in countries like Australia, New Zealand, the United States or Canada.

More importantly, it has been Twitter’s most requested feature for many years now, a way to easily correct errors and typoswhich are so common in tweets.

Editing tweets, getting closer

This test will allow tweets to be edit multiple times within 30 minutes after publication. An icon will be enabled on these tweets along with a timestamp and label to indicate that these tweets have been edited.

By touching this card, the user can access the tweet edit historyincluding previous versions of it.

This label will appear next to the time, date, and platform the tweet was written on. It will even detail the time the tweet was edited, which is of the utmost importance for the context in which the edit occurred.

The idea is simple; that the final tweet with the edition does not replace the original, opening the door to possible misinformation and other harmful practices. What Twitter seeks with this is to protect the “conversation integrity”, when creating a “public record of what was said.”

In fact, they say they will be closely monitoring how users may abuse the feature. The test is a “very important part of the process” and they say they are “as careful as possible” with it.

The social network “looks for behaviors potentially abusive or spammy, such as harmful language, negative and repetitive responses, and unsolicited mentions. Twitter flags such accounts and automatically blocks them from responding to your Tweets.”

The accounts that users follow or interact frequently will not be blocked, but the rest can fall into this process. In addition, any user has a dispute or behavior that the algorithm considers inappropriate. This implies that Twitter will analyze all users for this purpose.
