Auto correct is a blessing and a curse. On one hand it helps us spell things we’d usually struggle with, but on the other hand, it’s too aggressive. Life keeps you busy, and nobody has time to proof read, so often that leads to you looking stupid on social media. You then have the choice of leaving the post or taking it down and reposting it with the correct grammar & spelling.
But what if there was the option to edit your tweet? That’s something that is on the table according to Twitter executive @Jack.
The only catch here is it’s just something that’s in consideration. It isn’t something that is necessarily in the works. The primary concern with editing tweets is security. Allowing people to edit the site makes Twitter more vulnerable. Some suggested allowing a 5-minute window to edit your mistakes to cut down on the security issues. I think that’s a fair idea, but you just never know with these things 100% of the time. I’d like to see this feature come twitter. I think it’s long overdue, but I’m just not sure how they should approach it. What do you guys think?
