Kim Kardashian wants edit option on Twitter

Did Kim Kardashian Just Convince Twitter to Make a Dramatic Change?.

The 34-year-old pregnant star, who is an avid social media user, said that she had pitched the micro-blogging site a feature that would allow users to edit their messages after they had been posted, reported Us magazine. “I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when you misspell something you don’t have to delete & repost Let’s see,” Kim posted on twitter. If you’ve ever sent a tweet and then noticed an errant typo or a bad link, you might be able to do something about it soon — and you might have Kim Kardashian to thank for it.The stars are just like us, at least when it comes to sending out typos on Twitter and then having to debate whether or not to delete and re-tweet, or let your typo live on forever while followers from around the world reach out to helpfully point out that it’s actually spelled “the,” not “teh.” Unlike us mere mortals, though, Kardashian has some sway with the tech giant, thanks to her 33.8 million followers.

The “Keeping Up With The Kardashian” star immediately captured Twitter’s attention, and within thirty minutes the website’s co-founder Jack Dorsey responded directly to the reality star. Unlike Facebook, Instagram or Tumblr, Twitter doesn’t allow you to change anything after hitting send, a problem for those who might be a bit too quick to Tweet.

Earlier in the day, Kardashian shared an adorable photo of the pair and their daughter, 2-year-old North West, from a photo booth at Kylie and Kendall Jenner’s graduation party. While many of us tweet into the void (usually begging for verified status), Kardashian actually got a response—and not from a low-level customer service representative at the site (the kind who usually ignore requests for verified status), but from Twitter founder and interim C.E.O.Jack Dorsey.

He called her suggestions a “great idea” adding that the social media network is “always looking at ways to make things faster and easier.“ To Kardashian’s credit it is a great idea, but it’s not exactly a new one. Back in 2013, which is pretty much a millennium in the tech world, Twitter employees told The Desk that they were working on an editing feature—and many other people have suggested it before 2013 and before Kardashian. Now that Dorsey has publicly weighed in, it may mean that tweet editing capability could be coming soon—at least for those with the little blue check marks.
