How To Edit Tweets On Twitter

If you are wondering how to edit tweets on Twitter, then you’re not alone.

Most of us have made this mistake: We tweet something with a typo or a grammatical error and only realise it after it is live. At that moment, you wish Twitter had an edit button, so you could go edit your tweet, to save yourself from embarrassment.

Well, your wish has been granted. Twitter is working on adding an "edit" button to tweets. In this article, we will show you how to edit tweets on Twitter. Let's get started!

Can You Edit Tweets on Twitter?

It's safe to say that editing has been the most requested Twitter feature for many years. In contrast to Facebook or Instagram, which allows users to edit their posts, Twitter has been rather silent on the issue. That's all about to change, however.

Earlier in April, Twitter announced that it is working on a new feature that will allow users to edit their tweets after posting them. You will be able to correct typos without losing any replies, retweets, or likes that have already been accrued.

According to the announcement, the company plans to begin testing the feature with Twitter Blue subscribers in the "coming months."

As of June 2022, the editing feature is available for some users. Tipster Mukul Sharma took to Twitter to give a sneak peek at the latest feature. According to his tweet, the new feature warns the user to edit or delete the tweet if the algorithm finds the tweet potentially abusive, harmful, or offensive.

How To Edit Tweets On Twitter

Presently, the only way to fix our typos and other mistakes was to delete the tweet and start over. This is a huge waste of time and effort. 

With Twitter's new editing feature, you will be able to edit your tweets after the publication. You will save yourself a great deal of time and embarrassment. Here's how - we think - editing a tweet would look. 

  • First, find the tweet you want to edit.
  • Tap the three dots icon and select Edit Tweet.
  • Do the changes you want to make.
  • When you are done, tap Update and your changes will be reflected in the tweet.

We like to reiterate that the edit feature isn't available yet. Because the company hasn't announced the exact timeline, we don't know when it will be available. Anyway, it is obvious that Twitter Blue subscribers will have early access to this feature.

We will update this post as soon as Twitter releases the feature for all users. Keep checking back.
