What Is the Best Way To Post a Twitter Correction?

If you ever need to fix a Twitter mistake, Social Times has uncovered a few tools to publish a highly visible correction. Check it out:

You’ll find a tool for generating strikethrough text on Fsymbols.com. Simply copy and paste the text from your Tweet (or write it in manually) and then copy and paste the crossed out text that appears in a new Twitter post. Note that doing this will double the size of the characters in the post, so you’ll need to limit your Tweets to 70 characters instead of 140. Web developer Adam Varga also has a strikethrough generator tool on his website that produces similar results.
