Micro-blogging site Twitter is considering the possibility of adding support for editing tweets, but the original version of the tweet Could still be viewable.
“Maybe we introduce a 5-30 seconds delay in the sending of tweet and within that window, it is possible to edit since the issue with moving longer than that is it requires that real time nature of the conversational flow from it,” 9To5Mac quoted Twitter chief executive officer (CEO) Jack Dorsey as saying at a podcast interview on Saturday.
On the site lacks the attribute, Dorsey said the platform was constructed on the SMS format of text messaging.
“Once you send a text, then you can’t take it backagain. When you ship a tweet, it goes to the entire world immediately. You can’t take it back.”
Dorsey first addressed the possibility of incorporating an edit feature for tweets in December 2016, depending on the Twitterati’s suggestions.
Twitter was recently testing a brand new feature on Android that places news stories at the peak of the deadline to help users keep up with what’s going on across the world.
