A couple of days ago, Michael Sayman who is a product lead at Twitter asked two questions from his profile on the platform. The first question was asking people to say the feature that they wish Twitter had. This was a straightforward question and people poured down their feature wishes for Twitter.
It got a lot of reactions and became a source of what Twitter needs to fulfill people’s demands. Three days later, Sayman asked another question. This time, he asked people to say the feature they wish that Twitter didn’t have. Although he insisted that he wrote “didn’t have”, again people listed their wishes for future improvements and features for Twitter.
7 Twitter features and improvements that people asking for
In our article, we listed the most requested 7 Twitter features according to the responses that came to Michael Sayman’s questions.
#1 Ability to mass delete tweets
That feature request has come from many individuals and made it the number one requested feature for Twitter. A remarkable amount of people want to delete all their tweets and have a fresh start on the platform.
This is one example. Some other individuals elaborated on their needs. They want to mass delete tweets from a period of time, before and after a date.
Yes, it isn’t possible to mass delete tweets on Twitter. However, you can still use some other third-party tools to remove all your tweets, retweets, replies, and likes from your accounts and clean your Twitter account.

#2 An edit button
Interestingly, on the same day when Michael Sayman asked people their wishes about features on Twitter, Elon Musk created a poll on the platform asking “Do you want an edit button?” More than 4 million people participated in this poll and 73.6% of them voted in favor of an edit button.
We don’t know related or not, the same request was in high demand under Sayman’s questions. People on Twitter definitely want an edit button.
Then, we all learned that Twitter ‘has been working on an edit button since last year. They made an announcement on the platform just a day later from Musk’s poll and Sayman’s question.
The solution on the Twitter side seems to wait for a while. But, the question is still here: How can we edit tweets?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to edit tweets on regular Twitter accounts once sent. But, you can edit your scheduled tweets before sharing them. You can schedule tweets by using some third-party tools and Circleboom Publish is the most comprehensive but the simplest one at the same time.

#3 A better verification system
Verification on Twitter is symbolized by a blue tick. Sometimes it is argued that not real people and accounts who deserve verification get the blue Twitter tick. And sometimes, Twitter gives a blue verification badge to fake accounts, mistakenly.
Under Sayman’s tweet, many people expressed this verification issue. They want Twitter verification more systematized. Here is one example of these suggestions:
Regarding verified Twitter accounts, users can filter their and someone else’s Twitter followers and friends by their verification status.

#7 Bot/spam/fake account detection
We don’t know how many bot or fake accounts are there on Twitter. Research indicated that between 9% and 15% of all tweets are coming from bot accounts. This is a huge number. Sometimes, they are organized on specific topics. For example, during the Covid pandemic, there was a big movement on Twitter about the subject. Another research claimed that almost half of accounts that are tweeting about Coronavirus are fake and bot profiles.
This is an important problem. So, naturally, people are asking for a feature or improvement from Twitter to detect and eliminate bots and fake accounts.
