 Twitter tests the “sorry button”.  But you have to be quick

One of the most desired features ever on Twitter is that the social network will be able to let you edit a tweet after it has already been published. The idea is popular with users because it allows the correction of a grammatical or only a typo error.

The social network led by Jack Dorsey is not a fan of that edit button that we see on other social networks. The claim is that it could promote that tweets already on a large scale could be edited, promoting things completely different from what was originally written.

Now, thanks to engineer Jane Manchun Wong, it is known that Twitter is testing something that is in between. As you can see below, the social network is testing a button that allows “undo sending”.

Undoing a tweet for a few seconds is being tested

Imagine that you just launched a tweet and in a fraction of a second you realize that you were wrong. During the time that appears to be 5 seconds, you can undo this sending and correct any error.

This is a feature that will certainly be well received by many. However, it is worth mentioning that, judging by the GIF, we cannot see the tweet while the undo button is active. That is, finding a possible error becomes difficult if it does not happen in the final version.

It is important to recall the statements by Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO at the beginning of last year to Wired. The CEO stated categorically that “The answer is no. (…) We made some practical considerations, but we will probably never do it ”. You can see the statements to date in the video below.
