    Twitter to add edit button in bid to curb harmful content


    Social Media

    To soon control usage of disturbing words

    Twitter is planning to finally add a new feature allowing users to edit harmful/ disturbing content rather than delete them completely. It has been a long wait for Twitter users to finally get what they wanted.

    Techie Mukul Sharma took to Twitter giving a sneak-peak on the latest feature. Here’s what he said:

    Twitter Edit button is here, but only for potentially abusive/harmful/offensive tweets for now.
    Plus, Twitter is testing a like/dislike feature, which lets you view the stats (likes, comments, RTs) in the notifications section itself and lets you engage with the tweet right there

    How does it work?

    When someone types offensive/disturbing content on their tweet box, the Twitter algorithm will automatically send a pop-up suggestion to review the text before the user hits tweet button, along with options like deleting the post or posting tweet. In addition, Twitter is also testing a like/dislike mark in the notification tray itself.

    Earlier this year, Elon Musk, conducted a Twitter poll asking users whether they would like an “edit button”. Later, he struck an acquisition deal with Twitter for $44 billion.

    Do you want an edit button?
