Twitter Edit Button Appears Again, Suggested Uncooked Version Media Replaceable

The Twitter Edit button has been discovered again. A seemingly uncooked version of the edit button suggests that Twitter users will not only be able to edit words, but will be able to completely change tweets along with the shared media content in them. Furthermore, there are also screenshots showing what an edited tweet and an old tweet edit look like on Twitter Web App. The previously discovered edit button for Twitter is also located on the web interface. The Edit Tweet option in both shown developments is in the three-dot menu.

In a series of tweets posted online, reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong showed how an uncooked version of Twitter edit button works. A short clip posted by Wong shows users being able to click the three dots, select “Edit Tweet” in the contextual drop-down menu, and edit a tweet. However, she says that the currently unreleased version of Edit Tweet reloads media (images, videos, GIFs, etc.) instead of reusing them. The engineer says that the video converted to an image could be a case of “media mishandling”.

In addition, in a Reply to a question, Wong confirmed that this also means that users can replace media while editing tweets.

The previous look at the Twitter Edit Button, discovered on the web interface by developer Alessandro Paluzzi, suggested a similar operation. The button will be coming to Twitter Blue users in the coming months.

Furthermore, in two separate tweets, she shows what the edited tweet as well as the edited old tweet is expected to look like on Twitter Web App. inside case on how an edited tweet should look, there will be a clickable “Edited” link next to the timestamp. It is assumed to show all previous versions of that tweet. inside second caseTwitter will tip users about an old, unedited version of the tweet by mentioning “There is a new version of this Tweet” below the original tweet.

Wong explains this with an example (via The Verge). Remember Donald Trump’s “covefe” tweet? So Trump’s original tweet “covefe” would get ID #1. Now, assuming Trump makes an edit in the tweet making it “coffee”, the edited tweet (technically a one) new tweet) will have ID #2. New tweet will show an “Edited” clickable button next to the timestamp and if you opened/embed the original tweet (#1) tweet it will show the indicator “ There is a new version of this Tweet.”
