Maybe it was because you included a typo in it, or maybe it's far worse.

"Remove a message from a chat thread after it's been sent".

Mark Zuckerberg was caught out earlier this when it was found he, and other high-level Facebook execs, had the ability to erase messages they had sent to other people's inboxes.

Now, it remains to be seen when exactly Facebook will make the option to unsend messages available to everyone because "coming soon" doesn't tells us too much about that.

Users may now delete messages on the Messenger app but it only reflects on the sender's end and remains on the recipient's thread.

Facebook Messenger will soon roll out an unsend feature, which will give users a grand total of ten minutes to unsend a message, wiping it from your chat history. This was in the release notes for version 191.0 of the iOS version of Messenger. Gmail allows users the time intervals of 5, 10, 20, and 30 seconds to take back that drunk email you never should have sent in the first place.

It is going to introduce an "unsend" feature in an update to Messenger.

You'll have to notice the mistake pretty quickly if you want it erased from the digital world; but nevertheless, it's possible now.
