Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has started a poll for his Twitter followers seeking wisdom on the features they would like the social media network to introduce in 2017. Dorsey in a tweet has talked about the possibility of bringing editing functionality to tweets, adding that ‘a form of edit’ was needed.

In a tweet on Thursday, Dorsey asked his followers about the changes they wanted to be made on Twitter. “Following the footsteps of Brian Chesky: what’s the most important thing you want to see Twitter improve or create in 2017? #Twitter2017,” Dorsey had tweeted.

The most common request aimed at Dorsey was the demand for an edit button for tweets that would quickly allow users to edit them in case of a typo or grammatical error, instead of deleting the message and tweeting again. Dorsey in his response one such request had said that there is a big difference between editing a tweet ‘quickly’ as opposed to ‘anytime’ after being posted. He explained how there is a big difference between the two, with the latter requiring a change log as the company is “off the public record”.
