A couple of months back, Twitter was seen testing its edit feature for select Twitter Blue users. Now, the popular microblogging platform is working on a specific edit option. Moreover, a new dislike button is also rolling out to some users.
Edit Option For Potentially Offensive Tweets
While Twitter users have been clamouring for an edit button, the new function spotted by tipster Mukul Sharma doesn’t work quite as expected. Unfortunately, this new edit option won’t be available for published tweets. It’s meant to function as a warning before a user publishes the tweet.
After the user composes the tweet, Twitter will give them the option to review the text if it has any offensive language. When the user selects the tweet button, the app will display the following prompt— “We’re asking Tweeters to review replies with potentially harmful or offensive language. Want to take another look before Tweeting?”

If the user doesn’t deem the tweet as offensive, they can go ahead and publish the tweet. Moreover, they can share their feedback regarding the tweet that was wrongly tagged as offensive. On the other hand, if the tweet did have abusive content, the user can either edit or delete the tweet.
New Dislike Button Within Notifications Panel
Twitter has been testing its downvote functionality for quite some time. The app will now let users like or dislike the tweet right from the notifications panel. Additionally, tweet stats will also be available in the notifications panel. This will allow users to interact with the tweet directly without having to fire up the Twitter app.
