Twitter update

Twitter will soon add a feature that will let users know if an embedded tweet has been edited or if there’s a new version of the tweet.

Application researcher Jane Manchun Wong has discovered that Twitter is working on a new feature that could be part of its extensive upcoming editing tool.

“Embedded Tweets will show if they have been edited or if there is a new version of the Tweet,” she posted on the microblogging platform.

“When a site embeds a Tweet and it’s edited, the embed doesn’t just show the new version (replacing the old one). Instead, it shows an indicator that there’s a new version” , added the researcher of the application.

If you embed the most recently edited version of a tweet, you’ll see a “Last edited” message below the tweet text.

But if the tweet has been edited since it was uploaded, you’ll see a message that there’s a newer version of the tweet.

As Twitter plans to give its users an Edit button, a user must tap a button called “Edit Tweet” in the drop-down context menu, and then he or she can edit the post.

At the moment, it looks like a user will have 30 minutes after posting a tweet to hit the edit button.

You can even replace the entire media (photo/video file) embedded in the tweet.

The microblogging platform will also keep a digital record of your previous tweets.

Initially, the edit button will be available for Twitter Blue users and will be extended to all later.
