The evidence is installing that Twitter will be adding an “reverse tweet” function, however that those who desire it will need to pay: app scientist Jane Manchun Wong has actually found a membership screen connected to the function. The ability to reclaim tweets has likewise shown up on a survey asking Twitter users about features they d be willing to pay for, as well as in the code for the app, and CNET received verification today from Twitter that it is, in reality, being tested.
When it will become extensively available is unidentified, however its understandable why Twitter could be considering reserving the feature for its possible subscription service: whats a better lure than a “keep yourself out of problem” button?
For its part, Twitter hasnt stated if the function will be restricted to paying customers– its possible its not far enough along in advancement for that decision to have actually been made.
Its also worth keeping in mind that the buttons design suggests that it works likewise to the “undo send” button in Gmail, where the site merely waits a few seconds prior to actually sending the message. Simply put, its not truly the edit button that individuals demand, but it might a minimum of get you a few of the method to that performance (albeit minus the part where another person can tell you that youve made an error).
If Twitter is open to ideas for the reverse button, heres one: have it pop up if someone blasts through the offending tweet warning, offering them a couple of more seconds to reassess. Whether that would fix the general atmosphere on Twitter is tough to say, but its probably a minimum of worth a shot, right?
