#095 - Elon Musk turns up the heat on Twitter
April 18, 2022
It's time to talk about the Twitter and Elon Musk soap opera. After becoming its biggest shareholder, Elon Musk has wasted no time making his Twitter feature priorities clear. The Tesla CEO has polled his 80 million followers about whether they'd like to be able to edit their tweets after posting them. Fab and Becca share their reservations about the edit button. On the one hand, users can clean up typos after publishing their tweets in an ideal world. On the other hand, the feature could be ripe for abuse, allowing users to change the meaning of tweets after being shared across the platform. The so-called "edit button" has been one of the most commonly requested social media platform features. After initially being invited late last week, Elon Musk decided not to join the Twitter board. Did he take Twitter's reaction to his suggested changes the wrong way? On a lighter note, we are pretty excited about new accessibility support for video on social. LinkedIn, now we are only waiting for you.
