Twitter introduced the much-anticipated 'Edit Tweet' feature earlier this month, allowing customers to edit their tweets up to a half-hour after posting. But now, it seems like the social media platform will restrict the variety of instances in which customers can edit the tweet.
In a report by TechCrunch, Twitter said that customers will most effectively be capable of editing their tweets as many as five times in a half-hour. While this is probably more than enough for those looking to correct typos and feature images, videos, or hashtags, it appears that Twitter is taking precautions to prevent humans from abusing the function.
The enterprise additionally stated that when observing a person's behaviour, it'd extend the restrictions and the time frame into the future. Currently, the ‘Edit Tweet’ function is being examined and is most effective for those subscribed to Twitter Blue. It went on to mention that the function will, to start with, be available for those residing in New Zealand.
Also, it ought to be noted that the edited tweets can have an icon, timestamp, and label, so customers can easily see what adjustments were made to the authentic tweet. Twitter says it's presently allowing the function for a handful of customers to test if and the way it is able to be misused.
