Twitter might actually take note of Kim Kardashian’s suggestion to launch a feature to edit posts. In a tweet, which got positive response from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, Kardashian told her 33 million followers on Friday that she has asked the social media giant to allow editing of posts for any spelling mistakes and so on.
Kardashian suggestion a “great idea”
“I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when u misspell something u don’t have to delete & repost Let’s see…” she wrote. In reply, Dorsey, who called it a “great idea,” said Twitter is “always looking at ways to make things faster and easier.”
Kardashian is the 14th most-followed person on Twitter, and hence she is too big of a celebrity to be ignored by Twitter. Just a few days before, Kardashian found herself in an embarrassing situation when while asking the fashion brand Armani to resume selling her favorite foundation on Twitter, Kardashian misspelled the designer’s name as “Georgio” Armani, which is actually spelled “Giorgio.” Later, she was corrected by the brand’s Twitter account representative.
Meanwhile Kardashian, who is preparing for her upcoming beauty workshop The Master Class, took to Twitter to share her old photos. In on photo, Kardashian is seen sitting, and her loyal makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is doing her makeup. Kardashian praised Dedivanovic on his makeup skills and stated that the pics are almost ten years old.
Twitter wants more users
Twitter has added many new features recently, and if it adds the one Kardashian is asking for, it will be no surprise. The micro-blogging platform has not posted any profit yet but is expected to grow its second quarter revenue by 54% to $481.7 million. For Twitter, user expansion is declining, hampering its capacity to increase sales growth. So the micro-blogging firm is trying everything to win back investors’ confidence.
Most recently, Twitter released a feature for marketers who advertise mobile apps on its platform, allowing them to showcase their apps with videos before installation. The company is looking to modify its pricing model by offering advertisers choices on how they pay for ads. Until now, marketers had to pay when an ad was clicked on, but with the new policies, they will be able to choose to be charged only when the new app is installed after bidding for the ad.
