Twitter has announced via an official Tweet that it has started working on the edit tweet option and users will soon be able to edit any typos or errors on their tweets after posting the tweets.

This feature will initiable be available for the Twitter blue subscribers first in the coming months, the company announced.
now that everyone is asking…
yes, we’ve been working on an edit feature since last year!
no, we didn’t get the idea from a poll 😉
we're kicking off testing within @TwitterBlue Labs in the coming months to learn what works, what doesn’t, and what’s possible.

The company’s VP of consumer product, Jay Sullivan said in a tweet that editing a tweet has been “the most requested Twitter feature for many years”. He also said that the platform is working on how to introduce this feature “in a safe manner” since last year.
He further said,
“Without things like time limits, controls, and transparency about what has been edited, Edit could be misused to alter the record of the public conversation. Protecting the integrity of that public conversation is our top priority when we approach this work.”
2/ Edit has been the most requested Twitter feature for many years. People want to be able to fix (sometimes embarrassing) mistakes, typos and hot takes in the moment. They currently work around this by deleting and tweeting again.

Elon Musk who now owns the majority stake in Twitter posted a poll a few days back asking users whether they want an edit tweet option or not. And guess what, the majority of the users responded “Yes” they want that option. After that, the company has confirmed that they have been working on that option for quite a long time.
Now, it is interesting to see how the company will implement this option as it can be misused in certain situations. It can be misused as someone can post fake news on the platform and later edit it with the correct information. So, there are might be chances that the platform will tell other users that this tweet is being edited if it is edited.
However, everything aside, it is the most requested feature on the platform and now it is on it’s way. As of now, it is in development and it takes quite some time for this feature to reach every user globally.
