Twitter users, get ready to add that apostrophe or the correct form of "there" after you've pressed send, as the platform is now test-driving the long-anticipated edit button for some users.
Twitter announced that it would be testing the feature on Thursday, allowing fans of the social media platform to make changes to their tweets.
"If you see an edited Tweet it's because we're testing the edit button," the official Twitter account tweeted. "This is happening and you'll be okay."
For years users have been asking Twitter to make the edit button a possibility, and last April, the site said it would soon be adding the feature.
Today, Twitter posted on its blog that the edit button is first being tested by its team internally before the public can get its hands on it. However, it won't go to everyone right away.
"The test will then be initially expanded to Twitter Blue subscribers in the coming weeks," the company said.
The blog continued by noting, "even if you're not in a test group, everyone will still be able to see if a Tweet has been edited."
The purpose of the edit button is to "fix typos, add missed tags, and more," according to the company's post.
But users should make sure to read their tweets after pressing send as they will not be able to be edited after 30 minutes of publication, the company shared. Once they have been changed, a label marking them as edited will then appear for other users to see.
The edit also won't stop the original tweet from existing, as users will be able to tap on the edit label to see the tweet's past version before changes were made.
It has long been debated whether edits should be allowed on the social media platform that prides itself on the conversation curated on the site. But now the change is coming.
The company said the time limit and version history of tweets will "help protect the integrity of the conversation and create a publicly accessible record of what was said."
