    Twitter might consider adding an edit button, says Jack

    Twitter is considering adding an edit feature to its service, co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey said in a town hall event held at IIT Delhi on Monday. A tweet edit feature has been one of the most requested functionalities on Twitter for years, although the company has dodged this demand until now. 1

    While Dorsey didn’t disclose any specific details on how the feature could eventually work, he provided some broader hints on the implementation. Dorsey is on his maiden trip to India since the last two days.

    “We have been considering edit (button) for quite some time but have to do it the right way. We have to make sure that we are actually solving the predominant reason why people do it first and not make something that takes away from the public record, because I think it is really critical that we preserve it” Dorsey said while responding to an audience query. He said a lot of people want the edit button because they want to quickly fix a mistake they have done, be it a misspelling or a wrong link. That’s a lot more achievable than allowing people to edit any tweet all the way back in time, he said. 


    The Twitter CEO who also heads Square, which facilitates payments for small businesses, also suggested that allowing editing of older tweets may lead to potential misinterpretation of user’s opinions. “If I tweet something that you agree with and you retweet that, then if I go and edit it into something that you disagree with, you have retweeted something that you disagreed with”

    Let us see how the stuff with the Twitter’s edit button works out in future. Apart from the Twitter edit button President of Indian National Congress Mr. Rahul Gandhi had a conversation with Mr. Jack regarding the issues with fake news on Social Media.
