I can't be the only person who is excited about this development?
I mean, how many times have you thought of a witty reply or drummed up an amazingly insightful tweet and then ruined it by making a silly typing error?
If so, you'll be just as excited as me about Twitter's recent announcement:
|"For this test, Tweets will be able to be edited a few times in the 30 minutes following their publication. Edited Tweets will appear with an icon, timestamp, and label so it's clear to readers that the original Tweet has been modified. Tapping the label will take viewers to the Tweet's Edit History, which includes past versions of the Tweet."|
The full tweet editing details are as follows:
- Tweets will be editable within the first 30 minutes following their publication. This is designed to limit the capacity for people to update viral tweets in retrospect, because you won't know just how much reach a tweet will eventually get within the first half hour
- Tweet edits will be publicly accessible via the tweet history, which will list all previous versions of the tweet, and detail on when the edits occurred
- Users will be able to edit text, images and video in a tweet, as well as alt text info
- While it will first be launched to Twitter Blue subscribers only, all users will eventually be able to access the option, free of charge
