Being Kim Kardashian is kind of a big deal every day, but lately she's been really making moves.
She met with the president to discuss prison reform (and actually got someone released!) and now she's taking her negotiation and activism skills to something of similarly high importance - getting an edit button on Twitter.
Kim apparently had invited Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey to her husband Kanye West's birthday party. And perhaps she had a hidden agenda for extending the invite, because she later tweeted about the conversation they had, alluding that she discussed the possibility of getting that sought-after "edit" button with him.
I had a very good convo with @jack this weekend at Kanye’s bday and I think he really heard me out on the edit button.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 13, 2018
Jack's tweet response was pretty hilarious and spot on, too:
Now I see why I was invited!— jack (@jack) June 13, 2018
I mean, think about it! How often do you think you've sent the *perfect* tweet, only to realize that your phone auto corrected "on" to "in" or that you misspelled a pretty significant word within the tweet and then it's just *close* to perfect.
An edit button would give us the power we NEED to fix these little mistakes and really up our social media game.
And the people of the internet are VERY here for it:
Holy crap, ok. You’re making moves. Can you go talk to Instagram and get them to go back to chronological feed? Please and thanks for your service.— Peri (@newyorkperi) June 13, 2018
yes, we need one!!! pic.twitter.com/aj4AQEX2PL— Meredith Eby (@nitemere11) June 13, 2018
But some people actually have their concerns about the use of an edit button, because it would allow people to change their entire tweets once it gained attention from others and give it a different meaning.
we honestly don’t need one because it would just be problematic. you could RT a tweet you thought was “funny”. then someone would just change it to something like “RT If you would eat my booty”. i’m not for it.— Not Ashley Joyner (@ItsAshleyJoyner) June 13, 2018
BUT Twitter user Mark R. Yzaguirre made a brilliant suggestion that I hope Jack will listen to:
If you do it, give it a short time limit like one minute. To do otherwise invites people to rewrite past comments to cover them up.— Mark R. Yzaguirre (@markyzaguirre) June 13, 2018
Sure, we could have an edit button that would help with the little typos here and there, but it wouldn't allow people to completely change a tweet long after it was written.
And by the way, Kim assured Jack that he was not invited to Kanye's birthday for this purpose alone, so don't worry about that friendship going under, people!
Hahaha never! Kanye loves you! But I had to bring it up 🤷🏻♀️ https://t.co/xZjDuw8LU3— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 13, 2018
I'm here for Kim K fighting for the things we deserve, like Twitter edit buttons.
