Unlike BirdSite, your TOOTS CAN BE EDITED on Mastadon! Follow this simple 3-step process to start using this valuable feature:
1. Tap on the 3 dots under the toot you want to edit for options
2. A new dialog box opens. Select 'Delete & re-draft'
3. Confirm the edit by selecting 'Delete & Redraft'
4. You can now edit BOTH the text & privacy setting for your Toot! When satisfied w/ the changes, select 'Toot'! 😊💁♂️
@Lord_VoldeMaut but it is a new toot and you will lose any boosts and favorites. Also if any one has already replied to your toot, those replies will be orphaned.
I explained the same here:
@Lord_VoldeMaut this doesn't edit the toot in place, it just deletes it and takes it back to the editing screen. So any interactions (replies, boosts, or favorites) will be gone
@Lord_VoldeMaut just a warning. if anyone liked or boosted it editing it will delete those actions and you are back with a post that has no interactions
