It’s not exactly the news we’ll continue to wait for, but it’s something.
Twitter is testing an “undo send” feature for tweets, which isn’t exactly an edit button, but it’s part-way there.
The news comes via app researcher and tipster Jane Manchun Wong, who posted a tweet with a GIF of how the feature would work. By the looks of it, a timer comes into play once a user hits send on a tweet, and for around five to six seconds, you’re able to hit ‘undo’ on your tweets.
A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to Mashable that the feature is being tested.
The feature looks like it’ll come in handy if you notice a typo or error in a tweet and want to fix it ASAP. But, from the GIF, it doesn’t look like you can see a preview of the tweet while the undo button timer is active, which might make spotting a typo a little tricky.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has previously ruled out the prospect of an edit button, stating, “We’ll probably never do it.” But we’ll take this as a compromise.
UPDATE: March 5, 2021, 3:09 p.m. GMT Updated with confirmation from Twitter spokesperson that this feature is being tested.
