Not only do Twitter Blue subscribers get to edit their tweets, but now they will have up to 60 minutes to do so.
Edits are still only allows on original tweets, not replies.
The upgrade from 30 minutes to a whole hour window to edit tweets was announced via the official Twitter Blue account.
Blue subscribers now have up to 1 hour to edit their Tweets.

Twitter’s support page for Blue was updated shortly after the post went up on Twitter to reflect the new one-hour time limit. It shows that Twitter is getting more confident about letting users change the content of tweets after they have been published, which was the number one reason why an Edit button was never really released prior to Elon Musk acquiring the platform.
When Twitter first launched the edit feature as part of its paid subscription last fall, David Pierce, editor-at-large for The Verge explained that “Twitter is being as careful as can be on this one, and seems to have landed in the right place.” So far, the availability of editing hasn’t been a source for major issues that I’ve seen, and direct access to the history of edited tweets generally makes changes easy to spot.
The ability to edit tweets remains the most looked for feature and Musk hopes it will continue to drive more users to subscribe to Twitter Blue. The subscription also allows users to get a blue verified checkmark, sharing longer and higher quality videos, writing longer tweets (up to 4,000 characters) as well as text-formatting (bold and italic.)
