She shares the exact weight of how Twitter is trying to persuade her to take an option of shit waiting and copy the link instead of the screenshot.

Later, Twitter officially confirmed to The Verge that it is a test given to a small group of iOS users and the pop-up will be a part of the update that is trying to increase the engagement of the users. There were various states that Twitter ran in August this year for the same reason.

 

Recently, it has a new edit button that is only available in the selected countries that will allow you to edit the tweet after publishing. Seems like Twitter is slowly moving towards more improvement and engagement to attract users on the microblogging platform. Stay tuned for more.
