New Delhi, September 14
Several Twitter customers had been left thrilled once they had been in a position to delete a tweet reply, edit and repair the error within the deleted textual content because it reappeared, and retweet it once more.
The Verge’s Tom Warren first noticed this, and tweeted that Twitter appears to be testing a neat strategy to edit tweets.
“If you delete a tweet when you reply to someone and then go to reply again it brings the old text back so you can correct your typo,” Warren mentioned on Sunday.
A Twitter person commented: “OMG I think I just edited a tweet?? I wrote a tweet, noticed a benign single-letter typo, deleted the tweet and pressed “reply” once more and located the total textual content of my earlier tweet accessible to edit and ship once more. If this actually is the characteristic take a look at I believe it’s I’m SO HAPPY.” Later, a Twitter spokesperson replied to Warren: “Unfortunately, we’re not testing this. It’s a bug and we’re looking into it”.
Twitter customers have been asking for an Edit button to keep away from embarrassment once they by accident ship tweets with typos and spelling errors.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has mentioned the Edit button will “probably” by no means occur.
“We started as an SMS, text message service. And as you all know, when you send a text, you can’t really take it back. We wanted to preserve that vibe, that feeling, in the early days,” Dorsey had mentioned.
Dorsey mentioned final 12 months that the micro-blogging platform is contemplating a “clarify” characteristic for its customers. — IANS
