You can now edit your tweets if you’re a Twitter Blue subscriber

Over the course of last month, Twitter internally tested a function that would let you edit tweets, and today this is finally live, but there is some small print.

First off, you can only edit your tweets if you’re a subscriber to Twitter Blue. That much was known from the first time the company teased it. However, you should also note that currently, editing tweets is only available in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

The functionality will roll out to the US soon, but so far there’s been no mention of it becoming available to those who don’t subscribe to Twitter Blue. It may eventually get there, but for starters it will be an added perk for the subscription service.

Interestingly, a version history is viewable for every edited tweet, so you know exactly what’s changed. It’s definitely taken Twitter a long time to introduce this feature, one that’s pretty much been a staple of a lot of other social media services – it may just be a case of ‘better late than never’.
