As you possibly can see on this instance, shared by social media professional Matt Navarra, some Twitter Blue subscribers now have an hour to edit their tweets, up from the half-hour initially allotted when tweet modifying was first launched final October.
That’ll provide you with extra alternative to catch any errors, with a doubling of the time out there to think about your message, or to answer suggestions from individuals who learn your tweet.
Which may very well be helpful, however it’s nonetheless solely out there to Twitter Blue subscribers, which make up lower than 0.3% of Twitter’s complete consumer base, and it’s seemingly not out there to everybody simply but, with some Blue options nonetheless being rolled out to all.
Working example, within the above instance, it states that the Twitter Blue subscriber size restrict is 4k characters per tweet, although Twitter truly expanded it to 10k again in April. Appears that not all customers have this enlargement as but, or the wording hasn’t been universally up to date – which is reflective of Twitter’s quickly evolving system updates, that generally result in bugs and inconsistencies.

It nonetheless looks as if a really area of interest providing, interesting principally to Elon’s prime followers, whereas the removing of legacy blue ticks has accomplished virtually nothing to extend Blue take-up, in accordance with evaluation.
Possibly, by forcing all advertisers to sign-up, that’ll change, nevertheless it does seem that the blue checkmark didn’t maintain the worth that Elon and Co. as soon as thought.
Possibly, then, they’ll want to return to the drafting board for an additional answer to handle bot swarms and income consumption.
