Twitter has increased the time limit to edit a tweet to one hour
Twitter Blue subscribers can now edit their tweets for up to an hour after posting, twice the previous time limit of 30 minutes. The feature was initially available to Twitter Blue subscribers when it was official last year. It only allowed changes to original tweets, not replies.
The update comes after Elon Musk expressed interest in buying Twitter, but before he actually did. Even after Musk’s revamp of Blue and the installation of new CEO Linda Yaccarino, the edit button remains a key feature of the subscription package, which also offers a blue verified checkmark label and the ability to write posts with up to 4,000 characters.
Twitter Blue Subscribers Can Now Edit Tweets for Up to One Hour After Posting
Twitter’s support page for Blue got an update to reflect the new one-hour time limit. But many blue-checked tweeters have complained that various parts of the package aren’t working for them. The feature of reduced ads, which has been advertised since the November relaunch, still hasn’t been rolled out. In addition, some Twitter users are still waiting for the ad revenue split that Musk promised in February. He recently said is still in the works and will be backdated to his original announcement.
Despite these issues, the availability of editing hasn’t caused any major problems. And direct access to the history of edited tweets generally makes changes easy to spot. Twitter has been cautious with the feature, and seems to have landed in the right place. However, the slow signups for Twitter Blue may be a cause for concern. As well as reports of Twitter not paying rent and other fees. The company is now worth only one-third of the price Musk paid for it last year. And ad sales for five weeks this spring were reportedly down 59 percent from the same period last year.
In conclusion, the new one-hour editing window for Twitter Blue subscribers is a welcome update. But Twitter still faces challenges in rolling out other features promised in the subscription package. The company’s financial struggles and slow user adoption may also hinder its ability to deliver on these promises and remain competitive in the social media market.
