Twitter to add “Edit” option to tweets


Giving more controls to the users on the Social Media site, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey declared that the company was thinking to bring edit function to tweets.

As per the report on the Variety on Thursday, Dorsey made these remarks as part of an impromptu public town hall with Twitter users, asking them for review on how to enhance the service.

In a tweet, Dorsey asked its users what changes they wanted to be made in their site, Twitter.

“Following the footsteps of Brian Chesky: what’s the most important thing you want to see Twitter improve or create in 2017? #Twitter2017,” Dorsey asked in a tweet.

Users made repeated requests to include edit function to the micro-blogging site.

“The request for an edit button for tweets came up multiple times, and Dorsey seemed to signal that the company is gearing towards a time-limited window to allow for the correction of typos right after a tweet was sent,” the report stated.

Dorsey argued that permitting users to edit tweets they sent hours or days after the fact would lead to a more complex solution, “including the need for a change log to give users the ability to review different versions of the same tweet.”

Twitter users also requested Dorsey to fight hate and harassment to which the CEO reacted by saying that bringing transparency to Twitter was a “big priority”.
