Twitter is considering an “edit” button

UNDATED (AP) — Twitter is about to do something it had long balked at doing: make it possible for users to edit their tweets. The company says it’s working on the idea — and will beta test it with some users in the months ahead. Many prominent Twitter users like Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and McDonald’s have begged Twitter to make it possible to fix a tweet after it’s been sent — but the company has been reluctant to do so. Another big fan of the edit button is Elon Musk, who is the company’s largest shareholder and now sits on the company’s board. Twitter denies the effort to make an “edit” button came after a Musk online poll that asked users if they wanted the feature.
