Twitter announced on Monday that users of its Blue service in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand would soon be able to edit tweets.

The eagerly anticipated editing tool’s long-awaited test “went well,” the San Francisco-based software company announced in a tweet, adding that it is “coming soon” to the United States.

“Edit Tweet is a feature that lets people make changes to their Tweet after it’s been published,” the company said on its blog. “Think of it as a short period of time to do things like fix typos, add missed tags, and more.”

Within 30 minutes after the first posting, the feature will allow users to edit a tweet up to five times, according to Twitter.

When a tweet has been modified, a slanted pen or pencil icon will appear, and a “version history” will be available to show what was altered, according to Twitter.

The cost of a monthly Twitter Blue subscription is $5 (about Rs. 400), according to the business’ website.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is currently involved in a legal battle with Twitter over his attempt to renege on a $44 billion (roughly Rs. 3.5 lakh crore) purchase agreement to acquire the popular social media platform. He had previously supported the addition of an edit button before Twitter announced in April that it was looking into the idea.

Twitter Blue subscribers”receive early access to features and help us test them before they come to Twitter,” the company said.
Twitter Blue is a subscription service that is currently offered in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

An aim of the tweak is that “Tweeting will feel more approachable and less stressful,” Twitter said while testing the feature.
