Twitter sets a limit on Edit button: only five edits allowed within 30 minutes


Twitter announce that it is working to roll out an edit button on there platform. The feature will be initially available to Twitter Blue subscribers in selected countries before being release world wide. The much-awaited edit feature will enable users to go back and edit their tweets within 30 minutes.

The report further mentions that the edit button will be initially available to Twitter Blue subscribers in New Zealand. Once it irons out these kinks, Twitter will reportedly release this feature for Twitter Blue users in Australia, Canada, and the US. There have been concerns that the edit feature could be used to spread political misinformation or crypto scams. However, these use cases can only be studied once the feature is available to a wider user base.

It has been confirmed that an edited tweet will be marked with an icon, label, and timestamp to indicate that it has been tweaked. Users will be able to check the edit history of the tweet along with the original post. Twitter has also unveiled the undo feature that allows users to cancel a tweet within thirty seconds of hitting the send button.
