Twitter no longer recommends Russian public accounts
Social media giant Twitter has announced that it is working on an edit button.
There have long been calls for the app to feature a button that would allow users to edit tweets.
Twitter says it’s testing the new feature as part of its “Twitter Blue Labs” program, to “learn what works, what doesn’t and what’s possible.”
Coincidence or simple fact, Elon Musk, who recently acquired a majority stake in Twitter, recently asked his followers if they would like to see an edit button on the platform.
Unsurprisingly, almost everyone was in favor of the feature, which should allow users to edit their tweets after clicking publish.
In the meantime, if you missed it, billionaire Elon Musk has officially joined Twitter’s board of directors.
The tech company’s announcement comes a day after it was revealed that Tesla’s CEO had taken a 9% stake in Twitter.
Twitter says it has reached a deal with Mr Musk that would give the billionaire a seat on its board, with the term expiring at its 2024 annual meeting of shareholders.
Mr. Musk, alone or as part of a group, will not be permitted to own more than 14.9% of the social media company’s outstanding shares while he is a board member, then for another 90 days after.
Therefore, this appointment effectively ends Musk’s ability to mount a takeover of Twitter.
