Is there a way to edit tweets with the 6WC bot? I know you can #undo and it undoes whatever data was added from the last tweet from you that it recorded, but is there a command to just edit the language or the activity, like with the Super Challenge bot?

The bot is weird like that. I think it might be something with Twitter's anti-spam features. But try adding some other text to a new tweet to differentiate it more from past tweets. That is why I'll add something superfluous to my tweets like "@6WCbot 30 minutes #fr #listening livre audio etc" because if my tweets start being too similar to each other the bot stops counting them.

I got some errors saying "There was a problem calculating your time spent. All time must be expressed as full hours and/or full minutes." but they were minutes and from what I can see they were counted. Anyone else experience this error?

No, there's no edit function. You can also #undo a specific tweet by listing the exact duration and tags, for example #undo 10 minutes #german #music. no subtraction, if there's no such tweet then it won't undo.

Thank you. I will try this.

Edit: It worked! Cool beans!

I guess I should've said no such item btw. If the tweet has been deleted that's no problem. The super challenge items are tied to specific tweets, the 6wc ones aren't (back when it was developed, it wasn't possible to tag someone under a tweet in order to show them which tweet you mean).

I looked at your tweets. It looks like some of them have two spaces after the number and before “minutes”. Maybe that is confusing the bot.
