update_attribute Update only specific attributes
Key for the first argument, value for the second argument

Usage pattern

The return value of the save method will be true or false, so it will be used when implementing the controller's create action.


def create    
  tweet = Tweet.create(tweet_params)
    #Processing when saving is successful
    #Processing when saving fails
