Twitter CEO considering user input
Twitter has had some rough times lately, with stagnating user growth and criticism over the handling of how users treat eachother dogging the company.
However, nobody can say that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey isn’t trying to right the ship.
Dorsey took to Twitter (no shock there), and asked users how Twitter could change or improve:
Following in the footsteps of Brian Chesky: what's the most important thing you want to see Twitter improve or create in 2017? #Twitter2017

Dorsey’s tweet got a big response, and the ability to edit Tweets came up often:
@jack enable Tweet editing!

@jack Ability to edit tweets and organize Twitter lists.

One user responded with an idea on how it could work:
The case for editing tweets:
– You make a typo
– You can only edit within 60 seconds of posting
– Twitter should show the edit history

Dorsey deserves credit for listening to Twitter users.
He seems to be taking the feedback to heart, as he recently said he’s “thinking a lot about” adding tweet-editing functions, and also said “a form of edit” is needed.
I wouldn’t be surprised if an edit-tweet feature shows up pretty soon.
