What you need to know

  • Twitter could let you know if an embedded tweet has been edited soon.
  • The platform is said to be found testing the new feature.
  • This new feature could probably work only after we see the ‘edit Tweet’ option.

Embedding tweets is quite essential when it comes to sharing content. They can include a viral tweet, a political tweet, a celebrity tweet, or a hypothetical tweet from Elon Musk stating that he would repurchase Twitter. Amid Twitter’s work to introduce the capability to edit tweets, it seems the company is working on preparing embedded tweets for this new feature.

Jane Manchun Wong, a security researcher who first spotted the company testing the new feature, has shed some details regarding the same on her Twitter post. The embedded tweets “will show whether it’s been edited, or whether there’s a new version of the Tweet,” says Wong.
