A Twitter feature idea

Just thought of a new feature for Twitter (for the web interface) - command history and editing:

Implement history for the Twitter web UI's tweet entry box. Like in the bash shell on Linux or DOSKEY on Windows.

With this feature, users could use the up and down arrow keys to recall and edit previous tweets and commands (before resending them as new ones).

Could use that feature for both the commands and the actual tweets and DMs (Direct Messages) and @replies. Haven't tried out other Twitter clients yet, so don't know if that feature (command and tweet history) is there in other Twitter clients or not. But even if it is, it still might be useful to have it in the native web UI.
