“Anyone on Twitter can see the edited label for the updated tweet, and anyone can click on the edited tweet to see the previously published version,” the company said. says.
According to the social media company, the label was essential because the post history helps “protect the integrity of the conversation and create a publicly accessible record of what was said.”
