Twitter said Thursday that the company will add an edit button if everyone wears a mask, prompting widespread tomfoolery on social media.

What’s happening:

The official Twitter accountshared a tweet that encouraged everyone to wear a mask.

Twitter said: “You can have an edit button when everyone wears a mask.”

Social media reacted to the news with hilarity, jokes and retweets. Twitter users have long called for an edit button since you can’t edit your typos or hot takes once they go live.

Is this real?

  • Well, Nick Pacilio, senior communications manager at Twitter, said this probably isn’t a joke “since multiple reporters are asking, this is not a joke.”
