Pretty rude. Just got this email from

I don’t want to tell them how to do their job (even though they’re comfortable telling me how to do mine) but the instance has already *been* upgraded lol

also I don’t think Mastodon (or Twitter) should have an Edit button :dont_at_me:

🤔 To me it's the nature of how twitter used to be when you'd SMS a tweet. Plus there's the question of likes or boosts. The nature of a post can change depending on how it's edited. At the moment I know if I delete and repost it feels a bit rude to those who boosted. Like a breaking of that trust. So if there was an edit option, you'd want to know it was or have version history.

@otfrom @ashfurrow
Also as someone who has on occasion felt the need to screenshot when people delete and then redo the tweet in reply, I think that it's better to not have that edit functionality. It don't think it's added anything to sites like FB.


@onepict @otfrom yes, it adds both technical and interface complexity that IMO outweigh the benefits
