Twitter has joked that it will be bringing its users an edit button as soon as everyone wears a mask.
The social media company tweeted “You can have an edit button when everyone wears a mask.”
Its communications account quote-tweeted the statement, adding “everyone means EVERYONE”.
The company’s lighthearted tweet wades into the debate currently being held in the United States over whether people should be wearing masks in public.
The president said he would not wear a mask because, reportedly, he believes he would look ridiculous.
In the United Kingdom, the government said that that face coverings must be worn in England on buses, trams, trains, coaches, aircraft and ferries in June.
The British Medical Association (BMA) in April recommends that people should wear face coverings where it is difficult to keep two metres apart.
Some users say the feature would be beneficial if there was a minute-long window after sending tweets, in order to allow them to amend spelling errors or broken links.
However, such a feature would delay tweets from being sent.
If tweets could be edited after posting, there are also concerns that they could be used to spread misinformation and disinformation.
