Twitter is testing an “undo send” function that would give users a short time to withdraw a tweet before it is posted.
App researcher Jane Manchun Wong, who discovers unannounced social media features by looking at the sites’ code, tweeted an animation showing a tweet with a spelling error where an ‘undo‘ button was available before a short timer ran out.
Twitter said the feature was being tested as part of the company’s exploration of how subscriptions could work on the platform. The company said it would be testing and iterating possible paid-for features over time.
Twitter has said it is working on paid subscription models, which would reduce its dependence on ad revenue, including a “super follow” feature to let users charge their followers for access to exclusive content which will launch this year.
CEO Jack Dorsey has previously said the site would likely never have an “edit button,” a feature users have long sought.
