Last week, we reported that Twitter was testing out one of its most requested features, the ability to edit Tweets once posted. The feature was set to be available to Twitter Blue subscribers at a monthly rate of $4.99, and the edits could only be made within 30 minutes after posting the tweet.

But new information regarding the same has surfaced as spotted by the folks over at TechCrunch. Previously, the feature was set to roll out to Twitter Blue subscribers but as per TechCrunch, it will be first rolled out to users in New Zealand and then gradually to Twitter Blue subscribers in Australia, Canada, and the U.S as they continue to study the user patterns.

What’s more, users will only be allowed to make edits on Tweets five times within 30 minutes after posting. The edited Tweet will also feature an icon, timestamp, and label. Users will also be able to trace back the original Tweet and view subsequent changes that have been made. All this is an attempt to control the use of this feature and prevent them from misusing it for malicious gain.
