I’d love a 5 to 15 minute window to correct mthspellings and omissions. But no more than that because I’d hate to “like” somebody’s Tweet and then have them completely change their Tweet to something hideous several hours later.

Yeah, the basic problem has always been:

1. Post “retweet if you like puppies!” (with adorable picture)
2. Get 100K likes/retweets.
3. Change text to “retweet if you like Hitler and Satan!”

They need a way to either allow only grammatical/typographical changes to text/links that do not alter the meaning (and AI just isn’t that good yet), or have all likes/retweets dropped if the original is changed (possibly with some sort of update pushed out to the clients of anyone who has liked/retweeted, saying, “old version pulled, click okay to apply your like/retweet to this replacement”), or have something that makes it really apparent that the change has been made (replacement tweet with original tweet below it in slightly smaller print? Something that favors the new text but presents the original prominently enough that anyone will notice the change… hard to come up with a happy medium).

Jack Dorsey is a piece of garbage, …

What’s with the picture? Is it you, or him, or some random image off the internet? Is it added to your post as evidence of something, or intended to sway people’s opinions in some way? Does spiky blue hair make a difference?

The only way I’d be happy about editable tweets is if it shows a changelog you can view the old versions in.

It is *very* important people can be held accountable for things they’ve said. The potential for trolling and abuse is insane if you can just change your targeting tweets after the fact.

The only reason not to allow editing is so that “gotcha” games can still be played. Is it sooo vital that a tweet be unaltered for historical reasons?
Edits invite bait & switch and other bad behaviors, imo.

If you make a mistake, delete the tweet… Not that complicated.

Jack Dorsey is a piece of garbage, you have this guy always challenging the first amendment. And secretly admires twitter being a vessel of hate and ignorance and people saying things they wouldn’t say in real life. And not talking about this article- in relation to this article, doesn’t really matter if twitter gets edit function, when it’s out there it’s out there. Can’t have people unsee deleted or edited or modified re-posts
