The statement took a dig at prolific Twitter user and critic Elon Musk, who asked his followers Monday whether the site should have an edit button — “yes or on,” he joked.

No, we didn’t get the idea from a poll,” the company said.

Tuesday’s announcement came after Musk, ranked the world’s richest person in the Bloomberg Billionaire index, bought about a 9 percent stake in the company and Twitter’s CEO said Musk was joining its board.

Musk promised “significant improvements” to the company.

Twitter’s head of consumer products, Jay Sullivan, said Tuesday that users have long wanted to fix embarrassing mistakes and typos, a problem they’ve worked around by deleting and tweeting again.

However, he stated the button could be misused to alter the record of a public conversation.

Sullivan further stated;

Therefore, it will take time and we will be actively seeking input and adversarial thinking in advance of launching Edit. We will approach this feature with care and thoughtfulness and we will share updates as we go.
