Add an edit button!
This petition had 17 supporters
Too many times in the past, me, and plenty of others have clicked "Send" on a tweet only for us to notice an embarrassing typo on it. Then we have to either reply to the tweet correcting the mistake (which still looks awkward since it's not in the first tweet), or take down the tweet and tweet it again, corrected.
Adding an edit button would be so much easier. Then we could easily fix the typo without having to awkwardly reply to the tweet fixing it or having to take down the tweet & typing it out all over again.
And if you say, "Read it over before you read it," uh... this is the Internet. Most people don't do that. And people will still make typos if they do that. I don't understand why Twitter hasn't added an edit button yet! Twitter probably makes millions of dollars, so adding one probably wouldn't cost much.
Thank you for your consideration, Twitter. And even if you don't add an edit button (which you seriously should), well, you're still a heck of a whole lot better than Facebook!
