Twitter has confirmed it's been working on a long-awaited edit feature since last year. 

The news follows new Twitter board member and stockholder Elon Musk asking users in a poll Monday whether they want an edit button. A Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Monday revealed that Musk has taken a 9.2% stake in Twitter.

The edit button will be tested later this year on Twitter Blue, a $3-a-month subscription service that lets you undo tweets and read ad-free articles.

Users of the social media platform have been asking Twitter for an edit button for years, though co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey said in 2020 that Twitter would "probably never" add one.

The announcement also comes just days after Twitter joked about adding an edit button on April Fools' Day.
