Twitter today announced that it’s been working on an edit feature “since last year” with edit button testing set to begin “in the coming months” with blue Twitter subscribers.

Twitter edit button
In a demo of the feature on the Twitter app, users can tap on the details button on a tweet to see the “Edit Tweet” entry that joins the already available tweet deletion, pin to profile, change who can reply, and add/remove from options menus.

There are no details yet on how the edit button will work, how long tweets can be edited, or whether there are version records, with Twitter planning to provide this information at a later date.

Twitter first made a joke about working on an edit button on April Fools’ Day last week. “We are working on an edit button,” the social network wrote on Twitter. Most people didn’t take the ad seriously given the day and the fact that people have been clamoring for the Edit button for years now, but Twitter today confirmed that the work on the Edit button is real.

Twitter plans to test the editing feature with Twitter Blue subscribers. Twitter Blue is priced at $3 per month and provides users early access to new features and other perks. Testing is set to begin soon, with Twitter aiming to find out “what works, what doesn’t, and what’s possible”.
