Twitter says it is testing a feature that would let users edit their tweets after they have been published.

It is understood that before Thursday, an edit button has been the most requested feature on Twitter.

In a tweet, the microblogging platform said it is giving users what they have been asking for.

“If you see an edited Tweet it’s because we’re testing the edit button,” the social media platform wrote. “This is happening and you’ll be okay.”

In a blog post, the firm said edited tweets are being tested internally and that the feature would expand to subscribers of its paid Twitter Blue service later this month.

It added that users outside the test group will also be able to see edited tweets on the platform.

“The feature will allow users to make changes to fix typos, add missed tags, and more,” the company said.

The edit label will include a complete edit history with past versions of the edited tweet.

The development comes a few days after the social media platform launched a feature allowing users to share tweets with selected people.

In April, Twitter said its more than 237 million users will soon be able to tweak their tweets with an edit button.

The microblogging company added that the feature has been the most requested for “many years.”
