SunstarTV Bureau: Twitter has confirmed to CNET on its testing procedure of an undo tweet feature as millions of its users demand an Edit button to correct spelling errors in their tweets, which could first be rolled out to paid customers via a subscription service.
First it was discovered by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong of the subscription screen tied to the feature.“Twitter is working on app subscription for paid features like ‘Undo Tweet,” she said in a tweet along with a screenshot on Friday.
The feature is different from deleting a tweet which its available to all users at the moment, as undoing a tweet will eventually stop it from being sent. Along with that it has a progress bar, showing how long you have to undo a tweet before it gets sent.
The `Undo Send` button is likely to provide a 30-second window for users to recall or withdraw a tweet with typos and other errors before anyone can see it. This will, however, be only an alternative to ‘Edit’ button users have been demanding for years.
CEO Jack Dorsey futher states “a paid subscription service is another move to achieve the goal as it aims to double its total annual revenue to over $7.5 billion in 2023 with at least 315 million mDAU (monetisable daily active users).
