People really want an edit button for those social media mistakes
2016 might sound like the future but there’s still a techie wish people have for the new year – an edit button for those social media faux pas.
Who hasn’t ended up deliberating between leaving up one tweet with an error or reposting only to lose any traction the original had gained?
Yes, a definite first world problem but with #Its2016AndWeStillDont riding the Twitter trends, we got to see the earnest reasons people want the power of the edit.
