Twitter’s upcoming editing feature can track tweet history

According to reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, editing a tweet using the next Twitter edit button can leave a digital trail of your tweet history. bee tweetManchun Wong explains that the editing feature appears to have an “immutable” quality, meaning that Twitter can create an entirely new tweet when it is edited, all while retaining previous versions of that tweet.

“Twitter’s approach to editing tweets appears to be immutable because instead of changing the tweet text within the same tweet (same ID), a new tweet is re-created with the changed content, along with a list of previous old tweets,” says Manchun Wong.

Like Manchun Wong comments:It’s unclear what, if any, users’ tweet edit history would look like. But if Twitter decides to make the history of the tweets public, it could be a way to allay concerns about potential abuse of the feature, as some critics believe it could be used in Change public record and mislead users.
