Technology is always changing, and social media is constantly looking for ways to improve their platform.
One of the most desired changes on Twitter by many users is the ability to edit tweets. It’s like the tale as old as time. Why can’t we edit tweets?!
It’s always confused people as to why this wasn’t an option, but now it’s clear—because we needed Kim Kardashian to say it’s necessary.
The star tweeted, “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…”
And whaddya know? It looks like Twitter listened. Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, responded to the pregnant star’s tweet, writing, “great idea! We’re always looking at ways to make things faster and easier.”
Whoa, it was that easy?! (Hey Kim, can you ask Instagram to add hyperlinks in captions, please? Thanks.)
The need for the ability to edit tweets was extremely clear earlier this week when Kim accidentally got herself into the middle of Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj’s Twitter back-and-forth.
Kanye West’s lady wrote, “Imma let you finish but…” with a photo from a shoot she did where she was holding up a finger while on the phone. She later deleted the tweet and clarified that her message had nothing to do with the words being exchanged by the music superstars.
“Wait wait I’m in Paris it’s the middle of the night & I’m posting my Vogue Spain pics not having a clue what’s going on in the music world,” she wrote. “I’m not trying to shade anyone! That’s not my style! I just thought that caption was perfect for that pic! Changing the caption now! #ironic.”
Now, we gotta brainstorm: What else do we need Kim Kardashian to make happen for us?
