Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Twitter rolling out ‘Edit’ button for Blue subscribers, but only if you live in these countries”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Earlier this year, Twitter confirmed that it is finally working on the long-awaited “Edit” button. After a brief public demonstration of how this feature will work, Twitter is now rolling out the option to Twitter Blue subscribers to edit tweets – but only in select countries.

As announced by Twitter, Twitter Blue members located in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand will have access to the “Edit Tweet” feature starting today. With this option, users can edit the content of a tweet after it has been published. This means that users will no longer have to delete and repost a tweet because of a typo.

The company says that the “test went well” and that the new option will be made available to Twitter users in the US “soon.” However, no schedule has been detailed.

Last month, Twitter told 9to5Mac that the company took its time to get the new feature right. Now, Twitter will pay attention to how people are using the new feature and its impact on the way users read and write tweets before making the “Edit” button available to everyone.

It’s worth noting that the new feature to edit tweets has some limitations. For example, users cannot edit tweets 30 minutes after they’ve been published. There’s also a limit to the number of times each tweet can be edited, and Twitter will show a history of previous versions of that tweet. Third-party Twitter clients using the new API v2 will also have access to the metadata of edited tweets.
