CEO Jack Dorsey this week asked for suggestions from Twitter users on how the microblogging platform could be improved.

And he got them.

The No. 1 request was an editing tool to fix typos in tweets. Other suggestions included finding new and better ways to deal with abuse, bookmarking, blocking of topics or words, topic channels, turning off replies and giving a tweeter’s influence more weight than his or her number of followers.

Here’s a look at what Twitter users may see this year:

    I like the suggestion of having the ability to edit a tweet but with a 30-60 second window.I know that I have made many, many typos as well and would of liked to have the ability to make a change. However “editing can be abused to a degree by promoting bad behavior” as one of the suggestions above tweeted.

    This change in twitter will definitely improve the micro blogging and make it user friendly.

    How about allowing free speech?
