“Orange Is the New Black” star Ruby Rose knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: an edit button on Twitter so she can fix typos in her tweets. The Australian star isn’t the first celebrity to ask for this, but she’s one of the first to say that’s what she would like Santa Claus to bring her this year.
The actress, who plays badass Litchfield inmate Stella Carlin on the Netflix series, took to Twitter Wednesday to write her short Christmas list. “For Xmas I'd like Twitter to have an edit button.. So I don't have to delete and retweet every time I have a typo,” she tweeted.
It seems Rose, 29, isn’t alone. The message was shared more than 1,600 times and liked more than 3,000 times by her 1.07 million followers less than an hour after she posted it.
Other celebrities have asked for an edit button on the 140-character social media site. Over the summer, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian West said she would like to see the feature. “I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when u misspell something u don't have to delete & repost Let's see,” she wrote in July.
The reality star turned entrepreneur even received a response from Twitter’s interim CEO Jack Dorsey. “Great idea!” he tweeted Kardashian West. “We're always looking at ways to make things faster and easier.”
It’s unknown when, or if, such a feature will be configured. When BuzzFeed asked if an edit button was really underway, Dorsey said: “I want us to question everything to make it better.”
Maybe a little Christmas magic will help bring a Twitter update that most users would love? Here’s to hoping.
