Question:

How do I edit a tweet in Twitter once it's published?

Answer:

Once you publish a Twitter update (called a tweet), there is no way to edit it. Your only option is to delete it using the trash can icon to the right of the specific tweet in your Twitter stream. Then you can rewrite it and publish it the way you want it.
