Twitter at this point realizes, it can’t keep going on losing money forever. Hence the company has taken a lot of initiatives lately to raise revenue from the service. They recently introduced Super Follows on the platform, where users can subscribe to someone for a fee, and can also access and see bonus Tweets created especially for them.
I think we knew this, but now we have confirmation that Twitter's #EditButton is going to be the gem of @TwitterBlue — if you want to edit your tweets, you'll need to pay up!#NewTwitter pic.twitter.com/NKU4XbiUM9

It seems the company is also considering some kind of a subscription service called Twitter Blue, and now it is confirmed the subscription will also allow users to edit tweets. Twitter users have long asked for a edit button, but Twitter has always been very evasive. It seems Twitter now wants to capitalize on the demand and sell more Twitter Blue subscriptions.
We’re exploring ways to make the Twitter experience next level—and Twitter Blue is just the beginning. This opt-in, paid monthly subscription offers exclusive access to premium features that let you customize your Twitter experience.
As of now, Twitter Blue is only available in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Twitter Blue also offers some other benefits, including Ad-free articles, custom navigation, Bookmark folder and undo tweet among other things.
Twitter Blue is available for in-app purchase on Twitter for iOS and Android, or on twitter.com through our payment partner Stripe.
