Two weeks after meeting Trump to discuss prison reform, Kim Kardashian West is back fighting the good fight, this time trying to fix Twitter.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Kardashian said she had a “very good convo” with CEO Jack Dorsey about the oft-requested feature at Kanye West’s birthday on the weekend.
“I think he really heard me out on the edit button,” she wrote.
Twitter remains stubborn on arguably the most requested feature on the platform, although the case for and against editing tweets suitably has valid points on both sides.
Kardashian first asked Twitter for an edit feature back in 2015. She argued that it’s preferable to deleting tweets that have typos in them, a common complaint among users. At the time, Dorsey said it was a “great idea.”
There hasn’t been much progress since. Questions have arisen about how long after a tweet you should be able to edit it, how many times you can edit a tweet, and whether only verified users should have the ability to edit.
Then there’s the influence of figures like Trump on the platform, with Twitter taking a view that the service helps to make public figures and policymakers accountable. Just imagine if Trump was able to edit his tweets.
In response to Kardashian’s latest tweet, all Dorsey could do was laugh it off.
And by the way, Dorsey really was there at the party.
