Twitter implemented the highly anticipated edit button outside the United States for its premium subscribers.

The social media company announced Monday that it was rolling out its edit button feature for subscribers to its premium service, Twitter Blue, in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The feature has been highly anticipated by Twitter users for years and will allow users to edit a tweet a few times within the first 30 minutes. The company also said it intended to release the option in the United States but did not say when.

“Test went well, Edit Tweet is now rolling out to Twitter Blue members in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand!” Twitter said on Monday. “US coming soon.”

The social media giant confirmed in a September blog post that it tested the edit function with a small group of users.

While not every user will have access to this function, all users will be able to tell if a tweet is edited. “Given that this is our most requested feature to date, we wanted to both update you on our progress and give you a heads up that, even if you’re not in a test group, everyone will still be able to see if a Tweet has been edited,” the company wrote.

The edit function will only be available for the initial 30 minutes after a tweet is published. It will also include an icon, a time stamp, and a label so users can tell if the original tweet was modified. If a user clicks on the label, they’ll be able to see past versions of the tweet.
