@CarterPaddy @johnb78 You can already do this by being patient. What you lack is not an edit button but self-control.

There is no point telling me what you think. You are totally wrong and that is the end of the matter.

@tomjd Example:
A: Do you like cake?
B: Yes, I love it.
[A edits]
A: Are you a rapist?
B: Yes, I love it.

This is not a thing you want.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@tomjd This is overthinking it, but a delete kills that tweet ID, so any new tweet is outside any reply chain. An edit changes the context.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to tomjd

Now piss off and fix something that really needs fixing.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Just learn to type properly, you twats. Or check before you send. Or don’t get so worked up over typos.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Also, you probably don’t want abusers making it look like victims are making up the abuse. People won’t check a version control.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

You do not want an edit button. You already hate politicians consigning their remarks to the Memory Hole. Don’t let them edit them.
