If you need to delete tweets which are tweeted a loooong time back?

How could you search your twitter account for tweets and delete them?

Well, this is where you take help of a feature called “Twitter archive”

This feature let you create a backup of your Twitter history, that you could download. You could use it for multiple purpose, but in this case, we will use it to search and select either all of our Tweets, or selected tweets from our account.

Here is a video shared by Circleboom team on how you could use the delete old tweets from archive feature.


What I liked the most here is, option to find tweets based on dates. Which is very useful, when you wish to delete all updates from a specific timeline of your profile.

Note: Depending upon the age of your Twitter profile, this could take a while (Couple of hours) to generate the archive of your Twitter data. You will get an email as soon as the data is ready for download.

  1. Hi Harsh, what else does Circlebloom do with Twitter? I haven’t used that tool. I don’t often need to delete tweets but change my pinned tweet and profile from time to time. I’ve been noticing more people using 2 links on their profile and I may add one soon 🙂 Thanks for the info.
