The new “Edit” button, which Twitter announced as a much-anticipated addition, would allow users to edit their tweets up to five times within a 30-minute window after posting.
Although this restriction appears plenty for fixing typos, uploading media assets, or adding a few tags, the firm may have instituted it to prevent users from abusing the feature by randomly modifying the content of a tweet.
Twitter informed TechCrunch that the current edit limit might be altered later after watching user behavior.
The new function won’t initially be made available to all paying users; rather, it will only be made available to Twitter Blue members.
The company declared that Twitter Blue customers in Australia, Canada, and the US will receive the feature after New Zealand members.
The social media platform wants to understand usage trends before introducing the feature to the final three nations.
The Edit button function has sparked worries that it would propagate political falsehoods and cryptocurrency frauds more widely.
The drawbacks of the function won’t become clear until after everyone can use it and it becomes commonplace.
Twitter’s security procedures, spam account detecting techniques, and child sexual abuse material (CSAM) identification have all been under scrutiny in recent months.
