Is Twitter going to allow us to edit posted tweets?
If yes, we’ve got Kim Kardashian to thank! Kardashian tweeted to her 33.8 million followers on July 23rd (Thursday), that she emailed Twitter suggesting the company add an edit feature to tweets that have already been posted. Her tweet read: “I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when u misspell something u don’t have to delete & repost Let’s see…”
Kardashian’s tweet suggestion comes after the Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift Twitter feud regarding Minaj’s VMA nomination snubs. After Swift called out Minaj for “pitting women against each other”, Katy Perry joined in and indirectly tweeted that the “Bad Blood” singer “capitalises on the takedown of a woman”. Unfortunately for Perry, her tweet was filled with grammatical errors which can’t be edited because Twitter currently does not have a feature for editing tweets.
Whether related to the tweet was or not, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey is considering Kardashian’s suggestion. He swiftly tweeted back to her saying, “great idea! We’re always looking at ways to make things faster and easier.”
Kardashian’s request also comes just months after she misspelled fashion designer Giorgio Armani’s name in a tweet. Personally, we really hope Dorsey takes this into serious consideration and actually add the editing feature to Twitter because, God knows, we all need it.
What do you guys think about this? Should Twitter have an edit tweet feature? Let us know in the comments section.
