Twitter announced Thursday that it is testing what is perhaps its most anticipated feature: an edit button.

The social media platform said it would begin testing an “Edit Tweet” feature internally before rolling it out in the coming weeks for users of Twitter’s paid version, Twitter Blue, which costs $4.99 a month in the U.S.

“Since this is our most requested feature to date, we want to make sure we get it right,” Lauren Alexander, a Twitter spokesperson, wrote in an email to USA TODAY. “From testing, we hope to quickly understand how this new feature is being used and its impact on the way people read and write Tweets.”
