If you’re wondering how the testing for the new feature is progressing, the news seems good — the Twitter Blue account has announced that the “test went well.” As a result, the social media platform will be rolling out the Edit Tweet functionality to more countries and expanding the range of the test. However, a massive chunk of Twitter Blue users will remain locked out from using Edit Tweet for now.

The testing will continue and now, Twitter Blue users in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to try it out. For the United States, Twitter only had a short message: “U.S. coming soon.” As for the rest of the world, we don’t know when that’s going to happen, but just expanding it to the U.S. will give the feature an enormous range. That’s exactly what Twitter needs in order to see how it is being used, or perhaps misused, and to try to remedy those issues (should they come up) before the global launch of the Edit Tweet feature.
Now, the real trial by fire is certainly going to happen when the beta test reaches non-Blue Twitter users sometime in the future. For now, with Elon Musk possibly once again choosing to buy Twitter after all, everything might change at a moment’s notice — although Musk was a fan of the edit feature, for the most part.
