Users of Twitter have never stopped asking for an edit button and despite the introduction of many features over the years, the company has stayed away from providing the feature. Which is why when Twitter said that it was prepared to provide an edit button, its users took notice. But its condition for providing the feature got laughs and inspired plenty of memes in response.

In a tweet on Thursday night, Twitter’s official handle wrote: “You can have an edit button when everyone wears a mask”.

The tweet got nearly 2 million likes in less than 24 hours and inspired all kinds of reactions. Some said Twitter is best without it, some were disappointed and others said it was the best reason yet to start wearing masks in public.

Plenty of people reacted with memes, and photoshopped images of themselves wearing all kinds of masks, to fulfil the company’s condition.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey had earlier said this year that the company would “probably never” introduce the feature as it may cause users to inadvertently spread misinformation.
