Twitter’s Jack Dorsey on edit button: ‘We’ll probably never do it’

www.theverge.com/2020/1/15/21066815/twitter-edit-button-jack-dorsey-says-no

Twitter users have been asking for the option to edit tweets ever since the service launched in 2006, but the company has always prevaricated, saying it’s looking into the problem, or considering it deeply, or a hundred other ways of saying “please stop bothering us about this, please.”

Now, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has given perhaps the most definitive answer on the question to date. During a video Q&A with Wired, Dorsey was asked if there’ll be an edit button for Twitter in 2020. He replies, with a faint smile: “The answer is no.” Watch below:

“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,” he says. “We wanted to preserve that vibe, that feeling, in the early days.”

Preserve that vibe? Jack thinks cell phone culture is punk rock. He’s right about one thing, Marcia Dorsey can’t take back the clit pics she sent me.

Don’t Text & Drive

www.donttextdrive.com

Here’s a scary statistic:
If you text and drive, you’re 23 times more likely to have a car crash.

Texting while driving has become the number one driving distraction for many people. Drivers need to be aware of the dangers and keep their attention on the road, not on their cell phones or other mobile devices. Parkview Trauma Centers have developed the Don’t Text & Drive campaign to help educate communities and stop preventable tragedies.

Educate yourself. Take the pledge. Share the message. Don’t Text & Drive.

Don’t text. If you’re a texter, you should text and drive to thin the herd.
