For a long time, Twitter has been flirting with the idea of adding an edit button and has finally committed to launching a beta test.

According to the Wall Street Journal,

" The long-awaited feature is now being tested internally, and in the coming weeks, it will become available for testing to a select group of users, including subscribers of the company’s $4.99-a-month Blue service."

“Since this is our most requested feature to date, we want to make sure we get it right,” the company said in a statement.

How do you think this will play out for Twitter? Should this be rolled out to a select group if it's a highly requested feature? Why or why not? And as a PM at any company, how would you handle a user request that's highly polarizing yet greatly in demand?
