now that everyone is asking…
yes, we’ve been working on an edit feature since last year!
no, we didn’t get the idea from a poll 😉
we're kicking off testing within @TwitterBlue Labs in the coming months to learn what works, what doesn’t, and what’s possible.

Many took to Twitter to speak on the new addition, some have criticized the company for taking to long for this feature. One Twitter users said: “You make a simple edit feature sound like astrophysics”.
