Jack Dorsey crowd sources Twitter's new year resolutions: an edit-tweet button is in the works

Jack Dorsey looks to Twitter's future

Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey is embracing the ideas of the social network's users as the company looks to right its course in 2017.

Amid ad and user growth stagnation - and with no viable buyer seemingly on the horizon - Dorsey took to the platform to crowd source ideas that will improve the core product.

The following tweet emulated a similar question posed by AirBnb chief executive Brian Chesky earlier in the week.

Dorsey stated that edits would harm the company's reputation as a "public record".

Some users suggested that the edits be made visible. Others stated that a time limit on edits could help replace broken links and typos.

He concluded that the ability to edit tweets was one of the most requested features.
