How to Edit a Tweet? Twitter’s still-in-development edit button

Twitter users have requested an ‘Edit Tweet’ button almost since the platform was founded. People are probably tweeting from their smartphones, so there’s a good chance they’re spelling something incorrectly. As long as there are typos or factual errors in tweets, users have two options – either live with them and leave them on their accounts as they are or delete the original tweets and post new ones, which will result in any retweets, likes, and embeds.

Despite never using Twitter, if there are no options for editing tweets, Here are examples which we have implemented on our Diazutech Tweets.

Users can also add missing media files to their tweets using the Edit Tweet feature, according to Twitter.

Putting limits on edits and displaying updated versions has been designed as a means of reducing concerns about transparency on a platform widely used by news organisations and politicians.

Due to these concerns, Twitter is being very cautious in testing and rolling out the edit feature despite many voices calling for it.

It is expected that the Edit Tweet feature will soon be released to all Twitter users, assuming all goes well with Twitter Blue users.
