It has been a problem for years. You write a carefully worded Tweet, post it, and then you see a grammatical error or misspelled word. Instead of having an easy "Edit Tweet" option, you had to delete your Tweet, rewrite it, and then post it again. Too many steps, right?

Twitter said that it has been working on this feature since 2021. According to former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, the inability to edit a Tweet is due to Twitter's origin as an SMS service. When you send a text, you cannot edit the SMS you sent. Once it is sent, that's it.

In addition, Dorsey believes that it could pose problems down the line. For instance, a popular Tweet that garnered thousands of retweets could be edited to say other things. This could then lead to misinformation and stat manipulation.

No words on when it will hit the current version of Twitter. The company did confirm that it is currently starting testing within Twitter Blue Labs.

What do you guys think?
