With a hefty 33.8 million following, Kim Kardashian is the 14th most followed person in all the Twitterverse, so when she tweets a lot of people listen. And that includes Twitter itself.

Turns out Kardashian is just as concerned with her image when it comes to grammar. On Friday night, she notified her followers that she had emailed Twitter to request an improvement to the social media platform: a new feature allowing tweets to be edited to correct misspelled words.

Perhaps Kardashian was inspired by the flak she received after misspelling designer Giorgio Armani's name in a tweet last month.

Kardashian's request garnered thousands of retweets, favorites and replies from supporters, one who actually has the power to grant it.

Twitter co-founder and interim CEO Jack Dorsey speedily replied to Kardashian's tweet, calling it a "great idea."

So if the day comes that you can easily fix your Twitter typos (twypos?) without reposting, you'll know who you have to thank.
