Twitter CEO explains how editable tweets would work


Twitter may set up a feature that could include a delay in posting a tweet.

For the highest time, Twitter fans have embraced putting out their points of view by the micro-blogging platform only to, at times, repent what they have put on the internet.

Presently, there is no alternative to amend what we have tweeted out but to pull it down.

In a new interview with Joe Rogan, which is posted on YouTube, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey talks about the idea of tweets which can be altered.

He recommends that a delay of 5-second to 30-second could be brought in. In that window, one could amend the tweet if they so choose to. This narrow a window might not be adequate for those who need the platform to react and not to reveal an opinion.

Dorsey thinks the real-time nature of the conversational flow will be impeded if the window is any higher than 30 seconds. The community is further considering into making the authentic tweet visible to users.
There’s also a probability of making the edit feature dependent absolutely on the context of the conversation.
