Microblogging platform, Twitter, to introduce ‘edit’ feature to tweets



Microblogging platform, Twitter, said it has started testing an edit button on the app as it plans to start rolling out the function later this month.

The introduction of the feature comes in response to continuous demands for the button by its users.

The new feature will allow users to make changes to their Tweet after it has been published. Twitter describes it as a short period of time to do things like fix typos, add missed tags, and more.

The tech company in its own tweet on Thursday hinted at the development.

Twitter hinted in a blog post that it hoped the introduction of a new feature will enhance the user experience.

“We’re hoping that, with the availability of Edit Tweet, Tweeting will feel more approachable and less stressful. You should be able to participate in the conversation in a way that makes sense to you, and we’ll keep working on ways that make it feel effortless to do just that,” it added.
