Since last year, Twitter has confirmed that it has been working on a long-awaited edit feature.
Elon Musk, a new Twitter board member and stockholder, asked users in a poll on Monday whether they wanted an edit button. Musk purchased a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Monday.
Later this year, the edit button will be tested on Twitter Blue, a $3-a-month subscription service that allows you to undo tweets and read ad-free articles.
Twitter users have been requesting an edit button for years, but co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey stated in 2020 that Twitter would “probably never” add one.
The announcement also comes just days after Twitter joked about the addition of an edit button on April Fools’ Day.
