It’s 2019 and, in two months, Twitter would be 13 years old.A lot has changed since it launched in 2006 but one thing has not: its inability to edit tweets.Knowing too well the can of worms it could open, the social networking giant has tread carefully on how to implement that feature.And CEO Jack Dorsey has a few ideas that sadly still remain unimplemented.It had to do with it being built on SMS, where there are no take-backsies.There is, of course, a deeper reason behind that fear.
