After having closed the purchase of Twitter for an approximate amount of 44 billion dollars, Elon Musk not only made the decision to modify the structure of the company by firing the highest managers, but also decided to make changes in the services offered to users.

In principle, the current edition has a time limit of 30 minutes, period within which users can edit a tweet sent a maximum of five times. If a person exhausts all their opportunities before that time, they won't be able to make any more changes and the same happens if they make fewer changes in that time.

Also, as a way to prevent this feature is exploited to promote disinformation and spam in content, Twitter indicated at the time that editing tweets will include a change log, so that any user can see a kind of history of changes instead of previous messages being lost.

In that sense, the tweets that have been modified will appear with a label at the bottom of the post that indicates “Last edited” next to the time its content was modified.

New features in Twitter Blue

With the step of the tweet edit button to the free version of Twitter, users subscribed to Twitter Blue will have a change in the characteristics of the service they purchased. Elon Musk made public the list of changes he intends to make in this version of the social network:

First of all, he mentioned that the price of Twitter Blue will increase again to an amount of 8 dollars per month (it started costing $2.99 and then $5 per month). According to Musk, this rate will be varied and proportional to the purchasing power of each country, so it could be an indicator of the expansion of the service.

In addition, according to the new owner of Twitter, Blue users will also benefit from priority in responses, mentions and searches within the platform. He also indicated that subscribers will be able to post longer videos and audios in addition to receiving “half the number of ads”.

One ​​of The features that Twitter Blue users will have available is that their subscription will also arrive together with the verification on the platform. However, those who are currently verified and have not paid for a subscription will have a “multi-month grace period” after which they will have to make payments in order not to lose their verification badge. .

Because Twitter Blue is not enabled in most countries, the period to which Musk referred would be linked to the increase in the availability of the service throughout the world.
