Twitter users have been asking for the ability to edit tweets since the service was founded. As it is, you have to delete a tweet and start all over if you want to correct a typo or mistake. Over the weekend, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was spotted at Kanye West's 41st birthday party. Kardashian, who is married to West, says via her own Twitter account that she took the opportunity to lobby Jack Dorsey for an edit button, and that he was receptive. The lack of an edit functionality has been an infamous bugbear since Twitter first started: If you make a typo or a factual error, your only recourse is to delete the tweet and start again. For mega-popular users like Kardashian, where tweets can attract thousands of retweets and replies before an error is even noticed, it's a frustration. "Now I see why I was invited!" Dorsey quipped in reply. Twitter declined to comment when reached by Business Insider.
