Has this ever happened to you? You’re re-reading the tweet, you realize that thanks to a typing error, you’ve tweeted the exact opposite of what you wanted to say.
Twitter famously does not feature an edit button, so the only thing you can do is tweet a correction before the negative comments start heading your way. In the not so distant future – you might be able to tap an edit button and revise your tweet. A tweet from Twitter during the first week of April said that the firm was indeed working on adding an Edit button.
9to5Google contributor Dylan Roussel disseminated a tweet showing that he was able to enable the Twitter edit button before it has been made official. Mind you, the button is not yet operational but it does give us an idea about what to expect from the social media platform.
To access the Edit Tweet button, you will have to open the overflow menu and press on the Edit Tweet listing in the menu.
When the button is working, users will be able to correct spelling errors and typos, add content to a tweet they have written, and hit “Update” to make the appropriate changes to the post.
Again, the button is not yet functional and if you try to use it, a failure message will appear.
Musk’s poll shows that an overwhelming number of Twitter users want an Edit button
Twitter stated the edit button is available to Twitter Blue subscribers as a beta release. Before the feature becomes available to all Twitter users, there will be an opportunity for the company to make any changes that it deems necessary.
Elon Musk revealed the results of a poll he posted on the site showing that a whopping 73.6% of those Twitter users answering his question want an edit button while 26.4% do not.
Where do you stand on this issue? Do you want to be able to make changes to your Twitter posts to fix errors and add content, or are you happy to keep your tweet unchanged forever?
