Following her role in gaining a pardon from President Donald Trump for low-level drug offender Alice Marie Johnson, Kim Kardashian West has embraced another cause — convincing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to allow users of his social media platform to edit their tweets.

Kardashian West recently addressed the issue with Dorsey at her husband Kanye West’s birthday party. On Tuesday, she tweeted to more than 60 million followers, “I had a very good convo with @jack this weekend at Kanye’s bday and I think he really heard me out on the edit button.”

Dorsey responded to Kardashian West’s message by tweeting, “Now I see why I was invited!”

According to Variety, Twitter has considered allowing users the option of editing their tweets, but the company has not announced if or when such a functionality might become available.

In December 2016, Dorsey posted a series of tweets in which he noted that Twitter was “thinking a lot about” introducing an editing capability, noting that “a form of edit is def[initely] needed.”

Twitter’s stock has been trading at three-year highs following the company’s addition to the S&P 500 index. Investors appear to have increasing confidence in Twitter following two consecutive quarters of posting a profit — a first in the company’s 12-year history.

Although things might be looking up for Twitter financially, there were mixed reactions to the idea of adding editing functionality to tweets.
