If you are an active Twitter user, it is likely that you have accumulated a large number of tweets over time. Sometimes you might feel a little concerned about some of these tweets as they longer represent an accurate depiction of who you are today.
Or maybe you simply want to clean up your Twitter profile and get rid of old tweets that are irrelevant & inappropriate to your current brand identity. Whatever your reason may be, you probably know that you can delete a tweet manually.
Officially, Twitter doesn’t provide a way to bulk delete tweets. In case you have multiple tweets to delete, it can be a bit daunting to sit there, tapping, clicking, and deleting each tweet one by one. You don’t have to test your patience anymore because there are quick ways to delete many tweets at once. These methods make the process much easier and faster than manually deleting each tweet.
In this article, we will explore different ways to quickly delete tweets in bulk on Twitter and guide you through each method step by step.
Understanding Twitter’s Tweet Deletion Process
Before we delve into tweet deletion methods, it’s important to understand how the process works. When you delete a tweet on Twitter, it will be removed from your profile and no longer visible to anyone. However, it might still appear in Twitter search results for a few days, even after deletion.
If your tweets have been retweeted by other users or are located on other websites, they may still be accessible through those channels even after being deleted from your profile.
You can relax, as deleting your tweets will not be affecting your Twitter account in any way; all your followers’ profile information and other data will remain intact. The most prime thing to remember is that tweets cannot be recovered once deleted. So, make sure you’re okay with this before you proceed to delete tweets permanently.
How to Delete Your Twitter Tweets in Bulk
Say goodbye to cluttered Twitter timelines by grabbing the power of these remarkable independent applications.
TweetDeleter is one of the most popular and useful services that help users delete multiple tweets at once. This powerful tool comes with different filters like keywords, date, type, and media to make it easier for users to manage and delete their tweets.
And with its advanced search engine, users can search for all their tweets and likes, get access to their tweet archive, set automatic tweet and like removal, and even save deleted tweets privately in the app.
Here’s how to use TweetDeleter to delete tweets in bulk;
First of all, you need to visit their website by clicking on this link.
Once you’re on their website, you need to click on the “Sign in with Twitter” button, as shown in the screenshot above.
When you click on the “Sign in with Twitter” button, you will be taken to Twitter’s page, where you will be asked to allow the app to access certain details. These are;
- It will be able to view your Tweets, Lists, and collections, see your account details and settings, and see who you follow, mute, and block.
- The app can also follow or unfollow accounts, update your profile, post or delete Tweets, and engage with other Tweets on your behalf.
- Additionally, it can manage your Lists and collections, mute, block, and report accounts, and view your email address.
Once you understood this access, click on the “Authorize app” button to authorize access to your Twitter account. And after you authorize the app, you’ll be redirected to TweetDeleter’s user dashboard.
As you can see from the image I shared above, I’m on their “FREE” plan.
In their free plan, the limit for deleting tweets in bulk is five. But if you wanted to delete more tweets in bulk from your Twitter account, you need to subscribe to one of their plans.
The pricing for these plans is as follows;
- Standard Plan: This is a basic plan from TweetDeleter that helps you delete up to 500 tweets per month.
- Advanced Plan: This plan has all the features of the “Standard” plan, but you can delete up to 3,200 tweets and 1,000 likes.
- Unlimited Plan: This plan is best for agencies and people who tweet a lot. It allows you to delete an unlimited number of tweets and likes.
Once you’re subscribed to their paid plans, you need to select the tweets you want to delete by clicking on the “checkbox” showing before every tweet. If you want, you can also select all tweets by clicking on the checkbox showing above the tweets.
TweetDeleter is a paid tool, and you will need to purchase a subscription to use its bulk deletion feature. The cost of the subscription varies based on the number of tweets you want to delete.
And if you want to delete more than 3,200 tweets at once, you need to upload your Twitter archive file.
Tweetdelete is another incredible tool that offers bulk deletion of your Twitter tweets, so you can maintain a clean and organized Twitter profile with no extra effort. It offers a convenient solution for users who want to manage their tweet history and ensure their Twitter persona aligns with their current preferences.

First of all, to use TweetDelete, you need to visit their official site by clicking on this link.
Once you’re on their website, you need to click on “Sign in with Twitter“. This step is very similar to the TweetDeleter step, we’ve shared above.
When you click, it will ask for permissions like we gave to the “TweetDeleter” app. Check them carefully and then click on the “Authorize app” button.
After you authorize their application, you’ll be redirected to their pricing page. Here you’ll see four different pricing, and these are;
- Free Plan: This plan is perfect for those who have very few tweets. With this plan, you can delete up to 100 tweets and likes per month.

- Premium Plan: This plan is great for those who tweet a lot. It has everything from the “Pro” plan, plus some special features like deleting all your tweets from an archive file and a few other things.
You need to choose the pricing which is best suited to your needs. As I’m just signing up with them for writing this article, I’ll continue with the “FREE” plan, which allows me to delete up to 100 tweets monthly.
After you choose the plan which is best suited for your needs, click on the “Tweets” option on the TweetDelete website and then select the age of the tweets you wanted to delete.
Here, I’m selecting to delete “Tweets older than one year“, so I’ll select this option and then click on the “Delete my tweets!” button, as shared in the screenshot above.
Once I press the “Delete my tweets!” button, it will begin collecting my tweets that are more than a year old and start removing them from my Twitter account.
This is a very helpful and easy-to-use tool, and it is extremely convenient for individuals who wish to delete all their tweets in bulk.
