That’ll offer you extra alternative to catch any errors, with a doubling of the time accessible to contemplate your message, or to answer suggestions from individuals who learn your tweet.
Which may very well be helpful, however it’s nonetheless solely accessible to Twitter Blue subscribers, which make up less than 0.3% of Twitter’s total user base, and it’s seemingly not accessible to everybody simply but, with some Blue options nonetheless being rolled out to all.
Living proof, within the above instance, it states that the Twitter Blue subscriber size restrict is 4,000 characters per tweet, although Twitter truly expanded it to 10,000 again in April. Appears that not all customers have this growth as but, or the wording hasn’t been universally up to date – which is reflective of Twitter’s quickly evolving system updates, that generally result in bugs and inconsistencies.
That, as a consequence of shifting sooner, is probably going not a significant concern for Twitter customers, particularly while you additionally think about that the corporate’s working with 80% fewer workers. But it surely does result in some variances in person expertise and have availability.
So should you’re a Twitter Blue subscriber, you could now have an hour to edit your tweets. Or not – and should you don’t, it’ll doubtless be coming quickly.
Might that assist to spice up Twitter Blue take-up?

It nonetheless looks like a really area of interest providing, interesting largely to Elon’s high followers, whereas the elimination of legacy blue ticks has carried out nearly nothing to extend Blue take-up, in accordance with evaluation.
Possibly, by forcing all advertisers to sign-up, that’ll change, but it surely does seem that the blue checkmark didn’t maintain the worth that Elon and Co. as soon as thought.
Possibly, then, they’ll want to return to the drafting board for an additional answer to handle bot swarms and income consumption.
