How to Edit Tweet After Posting

Let’s face it – None of us truly likes to send tweets with typos. Imagine writing, “What’s up people?” instead of “what’s up people?” on the account! 

Oh, the only thing you can truly do is wait for your doom because there’s no way your followers and friends are going to leave this! And, well, you can always delete the tweet, but why not edit the tweet instead? 

Who wants to delete the entire tweet for a little typo that can work with some changes, isn’t it? However, how are we supposed to edit tweets after posting on Twitter? Do you think it is possible? 

Well, we know multiple questions make their way into your mind, and there’s no one to answer them for you. But you need not worry about them because we are here! 

We will answer these questions for you, and hopefully, things will make more sense to you by the end of the blog! So, what are you waiting for? Dive right in and read the blog until the end!

How to edit a tweet after posting on Twitter?

Did you know that Twitter has finally added an edit button on the platform? We know you are just as surprised as we are, but we are telling the truth.

Now, you may ask why can’t you see the edit button anywhere on your account! It’s true some or most of us can’t see it! However, it is solely because the feature is still not available in most countries. The feature, as we know, is still in the beta phase now. 

However, Twitter Blue users from several countries have gotten access to the edit feature. The countries that are included in this list are Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. The citizens of these countries can edit tweets. 

According to Twitter Blue, the edit tweet is also expanding and is now available to Twitter Blue members in the US.

So, if you still cannot find and use the feature by the end, there’s a strong possibility that it hasn’t rolled out in your country yet. Besides, you need to understand more than one thing about the editing feature on the app. 

You can only edit from the device you sent the tweet from. For instance, if you are using your mobile app to tweet, then you need your mobile app to edit those tweets. You cannot use the desktop mode to edit. 

You cannot edit your tweets more than five times because that is the maximum limit. Hence, those of you who can access the feature can use it, while the ones who don’t have access to it can wait until it reaches your country. We know you are excited to use the feature, so we will tell you how to use it in the section below. 

How to edit tweets after posting: A step-by-step guide to follow 

Editing tweets is possible, and everybody is rejoicing in the news. The feature was well-received by Twitter users! However, there are things that you should remember while using the feature. 

You can only edit tweets within half an hour (30 minutes) of the time of posting. Note that you can edit a few times during those minutes. 

Besides, you cannot really escape the situation entirely. Your edit history is shown, which might be a little odd because nobody among us would like it when people know that we are editing our short tweets. 

However, Twitter is not the only place that alerts us that we have edited something. Other social media platforms support this feature. 

You should also note that Twitter also displays the engagement of each version of the tweet. Thus, a version history that is made available on every edited tweet can tell you what exactly has changed.
