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

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

What I liked the most here is, the option to find tweets based on dates. This 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 (A 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.

How to automatically delete Retweets done by your profile?

A good strategy on Twitter is to retweet other powerful profiles or tweets of like-minded people to build connection. And, later on you can delete those retweets to keep your profile clean.

    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.
