Twitter has confirmed that Twitter Blue subscribers in Canada, Australia and New Zealand will soon be able to edit their Tweets for up to thirty minutes after posting them. Subscribers in the United States should get the feature "soon".

The highly sought-after "Edit" button for Twitter is now rolling out to Twitter Blue subscribers in New Zealand, Canada and Australia. Subscribers in the United States could get it "soon", with no word about availability in the rest of the world. While the platform wasn't specified, one can expect it to roll out on both Android and iOS versions of Twitter.

The official Twitter Blue handle also detailed what the feature would look like in the app. One gets thirty minutes to edit any Tweet, after which a little icon will appear next to it, indicating that it had been modified. Users can also see an edit history; something that is important as Tweets can be posted to elicit a certain reaction and then slyly edited to portray something else.

Twitter's decision to lock the edit feature behind a paywall is an annoying one and is already drawing flak from frustrated users, more so when competitors such as Facebook and Reddit have had it for years. However, making it free will result in more chaos as paying Twitter Blue subscribers may feel cheated. That said, Twitter Blue isn't available in many parts of the globe either, so many users will have to suffer through typos for months, if not years.
