Here’s what Twitter’s edit button looks like

The Twitter community has been asking for years for the ability to edit typos and other errors in tweets and finally the social network confirmed that an edit button was coming. Now, we have been able to discover an initial look.

9to5Google collaborator Dylan Roussel was able to enable Twitter’s edit button on the web prior to the feature’s formal launch, giving us a first look at what the feature looks like. As a reminder, the social network on April 5 She said those months of testing were ahead before the feature became widely available to Twitter Blue subscribers. At that time, the editing capacity could change a lot from what is seen below.

we are starting the tests inside @TwitterBlue Workshops in the coming months to learn what works, what doesn’t and what is possible.


In its current state, the edit button on Twitter looks exactly like you would expect. Existing tweets get an “Edit tweet” button in their overflow menu, and pressing that button brings up an editor for the tweet’s contents. You can correct typos or add to tweet and press “update” to apply the changes.

Of course, this doesn’t actually work yet, with an error message when you hit the refresh button. It is also unclear what Twitter will show when a tweet has been edited. Many have asked and speculated that there will be some form of story for the tweets. Based on how things look right now, there isn’t even a timer for editing tweets after they are initially sent.

However, Twitter still has plenty of time to refine this feature, as it was previously confirmed that the editing feature would initially only be available in beta and initially only for Blue users.
