Hey guys, I know we’ve all been in the position where you posted something on Twitter and wished you could edit it due to a typo or grammatical error or you just provided the wrong information and you just want to delete the post altogether. This post is meant to help walk you through the steps to learn how to edit a tweet after posting it.
Well, you can’t. Technically you can’t edit a tweet after posting it. Once a tweet is uploaded and posted on Twitter, there’s almost nothing you can do about it.
For now, there’s no way to edit a tweet after posting it, your best bet is to repost the tweet, maybe copy the entire text you’ve already posted and paste it in a new post section with the necessary corrections, and post it again.
Before I show you how to edit a tweet after posting, let’s cover some basics.

How to Repost a Tweet
First, let me show you a quick way to repost your tweet when you made the corrections that made you want to repost in the first step. I suggest you use a computer for this process.
- Go to your profile and find the tweet you want to repost.
2. Select the full text with the cursor and copy it using “ctrl + C” or right click on the highlighted text.
3. Go to House screen and paste in new post ” What happened?” part.
4. Then, make the necessary corrections and post.
How to Delete a Tweet
After reposting a new post, you must delete the old one. You can’t have two posts with the same content on Twitter, that’s not true. Still using your computer, try these steps.
- Go to Profile screen.
2. Find the tweet you want to delete.
3. Click on 3 horizontal dots icon at the top of the tweet.
4. click on delete.
Soon, the tweet will be deleted and will no longer be seen by anyone on Twitter.
How to Edit a Tweet After Post Using the Covfefe extension
Basically, you can only use the Covfefe extension with a computer. A programmer in California named Corey Gwin decided to see what he could do to make tweets on Twitter editable.
So far, so good, the solution worked. Although, it requires you to add Covfefe to your extension in chrome. This is a chrome extension tool which, once added, will immediately display an edit button on your Twitter posts giving you the ability to edit your posts whenever you want.
- Add Covfefe chrome extension tool in your chrome web browser.
2. Go to Profile screen.
3. Find the tweet you want to edit.
4. Click on edit buttonand make the necessary corrections.
5. Click on Enter and save.
A good advantage about this extension tool is that it gives you 15 seconds to double-check your tweets before they are finally uploaded on Twitter.
For now, we continue to look forward to the possibility of Twitter implementing the edit tweet feature. Until an official from Twitter provides a response to a question about Twitter adding an edit button, nothing is guaranteed. This Covfefe extension tool is your best choice.
You can also decide to use the Grammarly keyboard for Android users, and it is available on google play store. You can also add the Grammarly extension tool to the chrome web browser on your computer and use it to fix all the grammar mistakes as you type.
Can you edit 2020 tweets?
The answer is no. You can’t edit tweets yet, and we still hope Twitter will put an edit feature in the next update to allow users to edit the tweet after posting. The best you can do is to tweet again, delete the old one, and repost the corrected version.
Now you know what you have to do to edit a tweet after posting it on Twitter. It’s up to you to use this extension tool or wait patiently for Twitter if they will add the edit button feature to the next update.
This extension tool is about 5.0MB in size, and it works. You can only use it on computers with the Chrome web browser for now. If you have any further questions on this topic, leave a comment below, and I’ll address them as soon as I can.
