Jane Manchun Wong, a well-known application researcher, took to her Twitter account to share new information about Twitter’s upcoming feature that will allow users to edit their tweets. Apparently, Twitter won’t just edit old tweets posted by users. Instead, it will create a new tweet with the modified content and keep the list or record of old user-created tweets. In a series of subsequent tweets, Jane explains that “tweets always stay the same.”

Twitter could keep track of edited tweets

Simply put, mutable entities or objects are those whose values ​​can be changed after creation. To understand this, one could consider the example of Instagram captions – they can be edited even after a post has been uploaded. On the other hand, immutable entities or objects are those that cannot be changed once created. Again, consider the same example where the post itself is an immutable entity – users cannot edit the photo or video they uploaded as a post.

Amid the Twitter-Musk dissension, famed mobile developer and reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi spotted the “edit” button on the platform. Earlier, Twitter announced it was working on the ability to edit tweets, followed by Elon Musk conducting a poll on the platform with his account which has more than 80 million followers.

First of all, it is important to know that the edit button can only be published for Twitter Blue users. With that out of the way, let’s discuss Twitter’s edit button. As shown in the screenshots shared by Paluzzi, users will be able to access the Edit Tweet function by clicking on the three-dot menu that appears on a tweet once it is posted. Once users click on it, the tweet will open in an editable space where users can make necessary changes. Once done, users will be able to post the tweet with an Update button.
