Kim Kardashian West has told her social media followers that she has lobbied Twitter boss Jack Dorsey to introduce an edit button for tweets.

The reality star made her pitch when she invited Dorsey to her husband Kanye West's birthday party on June 8. 

"I had a very good convo with @jack this weekend at Kanye's bday and I think he really heard me out on the edit button," Kardashian West tweeted to her 60 million-plus followers.

"Now I see why I was invited!" replied Dorsey.

"Hahaha never!" said Kardashian West. "Kanye loves you! But I had to bring it up."

In May, Kardashian West met US President Donald Trump at the White House to discuss prison reform and the sentence of a great grandmother, Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving life for a first-time, non-violent drug offence.

President Trump said he had a "great meeting" with Kim Kardashian West about "prison reform and sentencing"

Last week, President Trump commuted Johnson's sentence.
