The Twitter new edit option might come under the three-dot menu next to a tweet. However, there are no details on how the feature will work.
This feature will let you edit the tweet which is already posted, but we don’t know if there will be any time limit or not. Also, there are no details on how the edited retweets will be shown.
Twitter confirms this feature after Elon Must posted a poll of asking people if they want an edit button. The result was positive in that poll, a majority of people wanted it. So, Twitter also confirmed that the decision of bringing the edit option was not taken because of Musk, they are already testing it since last year.
