Twitter tests edit button, will roll out to paid subscribers🖊️
Twitter is internally testing a widely requested edit button, a feature that will be rolled out to paid subscribers in the coming weeks, the social media company said.
For years, Twitter users have demanded the ability to edit their tweets after publishing in order to fix errors like typos. Soon, those demands will be met. Users will be able to edit their tweets “a few times” within 30 minutes of publication, Twitter said in a blog post.
Edited tweets will have an icon and timestamp to display when the post was last edited. Users will be able to click on the label of an edited tweet to view the edit history and previous versions of the post, Reuters reported.
Twitter has experimented with versions of an edit button. Subscribers of Twitter Blue, the company’s paid subscription product, currently have access to a feature that holds tweets for up to one minute, allowing users to review the tweet and “undo” it before the post is published.

These products, sold only on Dabur’s own webstore called DaburShop and marketplace platforms like Amazon and Flipkart, include diapers, talcs, moisturisers and soaps, hair care and face wash under the Vatika brand, and cold pressed oils and superfoods under its Real brand.
“We are rolling out a series of new digital-first products this year. Our strategy is to use ecommerce as the launch platform for many new-age formats, build up scale here and then roll them out in other channels,” Malhotra said.

Meta to set up new group for more paid features on Facebook, Insta🤑
Meta is setting up a new group that will focus on creating paid products and features for Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, a company spokesperson told Reuters.
The group, called ‘New Monetisation Experiences’, will be led by Pratiti Raychoudhury, who was previously Meta’s head of research, The Verge reported.
The move would put Meta on the same course as companies including Snap and Twitter that have launched paid tiers to unlock additional features.
The company has no plans to let users pay to turn off ads and is committed to growing the ads business, John Hegeman, Meta’s head of ads and business products, said in an interview with The Verge.
In the long term, Meta sees paid features becoming a more meaningful part of its business, Hegeman said.
