((TakeAPK)) – Elon Musk recently became Twitter’s largest shareholder, buying a reported $2.8 billion worth of stock and taking a 9.2% stake in the company.

Shortly after the news broke, Musk released a poll asking users if they wanted an edit button. These options are misspelled as a humorous way of explaining why the feature is needed.

opinion polls at the time Retweet Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal added: “The results of this poll are important. Please vote with caution.”

Twitter users have been asking for an edit button for over a decade, but we doubt anyone expected it to come from Elon Musk.

Twitter founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey said the site “probably never” Wired Q&A Back in 2020.

He explained that the site started out as a text message service, and once it was sent, it couldn’t be retrieved. The company has maintained this aspect, with the sole exception of Twitter Blue’s timed undo button.

Since Twitter relies heavily on the retweet feature, the edit button can cause many problems. For example, if you repost something you agree with, the original author may edit it after changing the mood.

It’s unclear how Musk envisions the edit button working, but so far, polls have been very supportive of adding the feature. So, maybe we’ll find out soon.
