Twitter and its missing edit button
Twitter is one of the fast growing social network in the internet world! In fact twitter is fast moving towards the first position in the Social media sector. This micro sharing social site’s growth in the recent past is one of the frequent discussions in the technology world. Yes, no doubt it looks like in the near future twitter will achieve that. But sad to say, though there are many new developments happened in twitter, there is an important option missing or yet to be implemented since its inception. It is indeed a pleasant surprise to many! Why twitter is not providing an edit button for their millions of users. Thus this post under the title: Twitter and its missing edit button.
The New York Times in its recent edition talks about the latest developments in this micro social site and the need for an urgent edit option for its users.
In July Kim Kardashian West posted a tweet in this regard to one of twitters co-founders, and the twitter official praised the Kim’s idea. But some other top officials of twitter find it on a different line and says if we provide such an edit option ‘the nature of tweets could change’
Though in the recent past twitter made lot changes in its functions and introduced some wonderful user friendly features (Read few posts on this subject published elsewhere in this blog pages -Related Posts) but the request for an edit option is still a pending case with twitter. In fact it is indeed an inevitable need in relation to the fast tweeting age. If it change the nature of the tweet let the edit option be provided only for few minutes, immediately after posting a tweet like the one Google provide for its Gmail users (the Unsend tool).
The NY Times report says that: Though the EditTweet debate continued on Wednesday, Twitter itself did not respond to a request for comment.
Anyways let us wait and watch for the company’s favorable response!
Its recent extension of using more characters in sharing messages is a tremendous change in this wonderful micro social site. They removed the option of 140 character limit in sending inbound messages to its users, That is no doubt one of the latest developments in the recent past.
