Breakthrough on WhatsApp, you will finally be able to edit a sent message

As of now, WhatsApp will allow the editing of messages once they have been sent. This news was confirmed directly by Mark Zuckerberg, via a post on his Facebook page.

An obvious example is the change from 'Beast of luck' to 'Best of luck', where a simple change of a letter can significantly change the meaning of a sentence.
