For some selected users, Twitter has started rolling out a new feature but it is not an edit button. This feature allows them to schedule tweet for Twitter’s web app. The feature is not functional for everyone as currently its is a part of an experiment which means it is not live for everyone and is available for a few users.
Twitter Allows Some Users to Schedule Tweets on Desktop
On Wednesday, Twitter made this announcement on its own platform that it is testing a new scheduling feature on desktop. Because at the moment Twitter web users are using a third-party application or TweetDeck to schedule the tweets they would like to publish in future.
In the GIF below, we can see that how it will work. It looks very simple and pretty straight forward. You have to create your tweet, tap on the icon with the three dots, and select Schedule Tweet. Then, you need to choose the date and time you want the tweet to post online. Once you are all set then tap Continue followed by Schedule.

However, once the testing is complete, Twitter will definitely start a broader roll out of the feature that will allow all the users to schedule their tweets for a later date on this platform. It also to be expected that Twitter might release it for the mobile app as well, but as of now, there are no details available.
