Twitter could let you remove your tweets – but only if you pay up

We may never get the Edit Tweet button we’ve all been waiting for, but it looks like that Undo Tweet feature will be going out soon for members of the upcoming Twitter membership service.

On Friday, tech researcher Jane Manchun Wong removed a screenshot from the membership options homepage that shows the button unknowingly as one move a writer could make. Earlier this month, Wong had also figured out what the undo button would look like in use – in fact a progress bar noting how long you have to pull the tweet back.

As Wong said before, the feature is a bit different than the “delete tweet” button that all Twitter-today has for free. The unsubscribe button stops a tweet from being posted at all, while the delete button only removes it once it’s already on the page.

The feature – which Twitter confirmed to CNET is something the company was working on – is just one of the paid tools that Twitter is considering as part of a potential membership plan. In addition to a right-away button, there are some other options that can include custom badges or colors to spruce up your profile, or face creation tools like Super Follows that allow Twitter users to charge the fans for accessing banned content.
