Jack Dorsey says now that Twitter doesn't let you edit messages

The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey has settled this Tuesday in an interview on the debate on the button to edit tweets after saying "the answer is not" to the question of a user. Has been for an interview for Wired, in which Dorsey responded to questions that asked the users of the application. When asked if the company would include an edit button in the year 2020, your reply was in the negative.

In February, Dorsey said in an interview with the popular podcaster Joe Rogan, the entrepreneur has admitted that Twitter “is working” on the possibility of editing a message, once written and published on the social network. That is, if one commits a typo, by the rush, in one of your posts, you would have the possibility to access the message and modify it corrected so that it is as well in your timeline.

At that time, Twitter was the alternative way of editing the message after between five and 30 seconds from sending, and after which, the message would be posted on the timeline. In fact, what is proposed by Dorsey is to add a small delay in the sending of the message so that the user can edit it before it is published (an operation similar to the undo shipments in Gmail).

Dorsey now explains that the decision not to include a button to edit the tweets should be the original function of Twitter. "We started as an SMS service, and as you know, when you send a message you can not withdraw," he declared, "we Want to keep the same feeling as the first day."

in Addition he explained that with the edit button, the users could give a wrong use of the application. Because if someone posts a tweet, other users 'retweeting' and the average time the user first edits the content could make the disclosure of a message totally contrary to that principle.

this is Not the first time that users ask Twitter this tool, although so far the company has never developed such a function. The closest thing was an idea shared by own Dorsey at the beginning of 2019 that were looking to incorporate a window of edition of between five and 30 seconds for the 'tweets', during which it would be possible to modify a message.

Dorsey has been re-referred to the role during the interview. "We have considered a window of a minute or 30 seconds to correct something," he said. However, it has ensured that its implementation is faced with the problem of the 'tweets' would take longer to be published.

For all this, Dorsey wanted to settle the issue of the edit button; "we have considered the idea but probably never will."
