Want to edit a tweet you've already sent? Twitter CEO Dorsey says it's 'definitely needed'


Twitter might begin allowing users to edit tweets they have already posted. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says the feature is "definitely needed" and "we're thinking a lot about it.

Other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram currently allow their users to edit posts, but Twitter has so far resisted. 

Currently, the only option is to take down a tweet and post a new one.

Dorsey floated the idea during a Q&A with users Thursday. 

The ability to edit tweets was by far the most popular suggestion.  

One big question is whether an edit feature would allow for edits anytime.

Some users suggested a revision history so that users can see the original tweet. 

Other suggestions for Dorsey included cracking down on spam and online harassment, as well as verifications for parody accounts

In the past year, Twitter has introduced new features, including 360-degree live video capabilities. It also stopped counting media and mentions as counting towards the 140-character limit for individual tweets.
