Twitter is definitely having a busy week, as the company has announced it is working on one of its most requested features. It has also gained a new large shareholder.
On Tuesday, the company revealed it has been working on a long-requested edit button, and would begin testing within Twitter Blue labs "in the coming months". Head of consumer product Jay Sullivan said the feature will require time limits, controls, and transparency about what has been edited.
"Protecting the integrity of that public conversation is our top priority when we approach this work," Sullivan said.
"Therefore, it will take time and we will be actively seeking input and adversarial thinking in advance of launching Edit. We will approach this feature with care and thoughtfulness and we will share updates as we go."
Twitter said the edit feature did not come from a poll, referencing a tweet made a day earlier by Elon Musk.
