Twitter edit button not a priority

Twitter's edit button is not their "top priority".

The micro-blogging site's product lead, Kayvon Beyjpour, has claimed that whilst they may allow users to update their posts in the future, it's not likely to be added anytime soon.

According to TechCrunch, Kayvon said at a press conference in San Francisco: "Honestly, it's a feature that I think we should build at some point, but it's not anywhere near the top of our priorities. That's the honest answer."

However, they are going to work on ways of "correcting a typo or clarifying what they [users] meant to say".

Meanwhile, Twitter is reportedly testing a new 'Snooze' button which enables the silencing of push notifications.

According to top tech blogger Jane Manchun Wong, the firm have started trialing the new update on some accounts.

Wong has explained that it works by shutting down notifications for three set times of one hour, three hours and 12 hours, ideal for those who want to take a small break from social media.

Twitter has only just launched it's "shiny" new desktop site.

As well as a new "updated look and feel" and the introduction of Dark Mode, the micro-blogging site also has a Bookmarks feature and they've moved Trends to the right hand side of the page.

You can also change the display colours around and an Explore feature has been added which has videos and local content defined by the user's location.

They said: "We are starting to roll out a new - a refreshed and updated website that is faster, easier to navigate and more personalised.

"The site has an updated look and feel that is more consistent with the Twitter you see on other devices."
