Kim Kardashian West asks Twitter boss for an ‘edit’ button

Kim Kardashian West claims she personally lobbied the chief executive of Twitter to introduce an edit button for tweets.
The mother of three invited Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and CEO of Twitter, to her husband Kanye West’s birthday party after the rapper turned 41 on June 8th.
During the festivities, Kardashian West – who boasts more than 60 million followers on the social media platform – asked Dorsey to allow users to edit their tweets.
She tweeted about the conversation and Dorsey replied quipping about the real reason he was asked to attend.
Now I see why I was invited!

Kardashian West responded to Dorsey saying “I had to bring it up” and that “Kanye loves you”.
It is not the first time the 37-year-old reality TV star has tried to use her influence.
Last month, she met with President Donald Trump at the White House to ask for leniency in the case of a great grandmother who was serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offence.
Alice Marie Johnson, 63, spent more than two decades behind bars and was not eligible for parole but last week Mr Trump commuted her sentence.
