The Twitter edit button is already in test and this is what it looks like | Digital Trends Spanish

The long-awaited Edit Button Twitter It seems to be very close to materializing, since the specialist in the “little bird” social network and leaker Jane Manchun Wong, uploaded a video where you can see how the aforementioned element works.

To activate it, a button called “Edit Tweet” must be pressed in the dropdown context menu, and then you can edit a tweet. Currently, it looks like you’ll get 30 minutes after posting a message to hit that button; will open a window with all its original content, and you can publish whatever you want: delete everything and start over if the user wants that. It’s not just because of typos.

Images and videos or gifs that are being attached can also be corrected.

the current unreleased version of Edit Tweet reuploads media (images, videos, GIFs, etc) instead of reusing them. an inefficient use of the bandwidth and media processing power, might be lossy too. plus it turns my video into an image (mishandling media type)

Other Twitter users will also be able to see when a tweet has been edited, as there’s a little “Edited” button that will appear next to the timestamp, and you can click it to go to an Edit History page that theoretically it should display all previous versions of that tweet.

But there is more, since Twitter will also warn you when there are new versions of a tweet, when you are looking at the old version for some reason.
