Change Last Commit Message

We can use git commit --amend command to change the most recent commit message.


For Local Commits

$ git commit --amend -m "{NEW_MESSAGE}

For Already Pushed Commits

In this case, we can only edit the most recent commit message and force push it to remote -

$ git commit --amend -m "{NEW_MESSAGE}"
$ git push --force

Note: Force Pushes can break things, so warnings ahead!
