  • Have you ever sent out a tweet and immediately regretted it?

  • Well, Twitter is exploring and quote, "undo send function" that would allow tweets to quickly be withdrawn before others are able to see it.

  • But you'll have to pay for it.

  • A Twitter spokeswoman on Friday confirmed to Reuters that the popular Social Media platform is testing out a quick tweet recall function, but only as it explores ways to launch and differentiate a paid subscription version.

  • The spokeswoman also went on to say that Twitter will be testing out and putting in place other features for a paid version over time.

  • Testing for the possible new feature was first revealed by an APP researcher who discovers unannounced social media features by looking at the sights codes.

  • She then tweeted an animation showing a tweet with a spelling error where and quote, "undo button" was available before a short-timer ran out.

  • Twitter is looking for ways to make money beyond its reliance on just ad revenues.

  • The idea of a paid subscription model is something Twitter has said it is working on, including a quote, "super follow feature" that would allow users to charge followers for access to exclusive content.

  • That feature is expected to launch later this year.

  • One thing, however, that's not likely to change the inability to actually edit tweets after they are sent out.

  • Even though users have long clamored for an edit button, CEO Jack Dorsey has stood firm that that will never happen.
