According to a report, Twitter will soon let users know if an embedded tweet has been edited or a new version of the tweet is available. Currently, Twitter displays the edited version of an embedded tweet without informing users. However, the company is working to change the way these tweets are displayed after they are edited. When the most recently edited version of a Tweet is embedded, users will reportedly see a “Last Edited” message below the text of the Tweet. Users will also get to know if there is a new version of the tweet.
as discovered Twitter is working on a new feature related to editing embedded tweets, by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong.
According to Wong, “Embedded Tweets will show whether it has been edited, or whether there is a new version of the Tweet”. This simply means that if a user embeds the most recently edited version of a tweet, Twitter will notify them by displaying the text “Last Edited” under the tweet. And if the Tweet has been edited since it was embedded, it will display that the Tweet has a newer version.

However, it is worth noting that the microblogging site is yet to start testing the editing feature for embedded tweets. Therefore, the implementation of this feature may vary if it is live and when.
Also, in April, Twitter was seen hiding tweets that were embedded on websites if the tweet by the original author was removed. Because of this change, deleted tweets embedded in blogs, news websites and elsewhere on the Internet were displayed as blank boxes.
Also, recently, Twitter has been seen working on a new status feature among some users in the US and Australia. The new feature, which is currently under development, allows Twitter users to assign one of several preset labels to their tweets. Twitter confirmed to a publication that the company is testing the feature on the microblogging platform for a limited time.
