Raza Ali Kazmi
There might be several reasons why you would want to delete your old tweets. Maybe you were obsessed with Big Time Rush’s music ten years ago but detest it now. Or maybe your colleagues have started following you on Twitter and you wish to keep it professional. As time passes by, personalities and opinions change.
Manually scrolling down and deleting old tweets one by one sounds like a tiresome task. In such situations, you might struggle to find a good tool to automatically delete your tweets. In this guide, we’ll introduce you to 7 handy applications that can be used.
If you want to wipe off all your old tweets in one go, TwitWipe is there to help you out. Considering that TwitWipe has been featured on renowned platforms like C|Net, CNN, and Mashable, we know that it is a reliable tool. All you have to do is log in to TwitWipe using your Twitter account and begin the deleting process with a single click.
The only downside is that deleting tweets via TwitWipe is not instant. Depending on how many old tweets you have, wiping them off might take some time. This happens because of several people using the application at the same time (almost always). Nevertheless, the wait is worth it. Note that once you have deleted your old tweets, you cannot recover them.
- Easy Tweet Deleter
Unlike TwitWipe that simply mass deletes everything on an account, Easy Tweet Deleter additionally allows users to search and delete old tweets based on different time frames and keywords. Not just text tweets, ETD works well with media links (e.g., images, videos, websites, and blogs) as well. The best part is that it is compatible with retweets as well! All you have to do is follow these simple steps given below:
- Connect Easy Tweet Deleter to your Twitter account by signing in to Twitter through ETD.
- Download your Twitter archive file and upload it to ETD’s server. Wait till the program has processed the file.
- Now, you can search for tweets/retweets based on time frames or keywords.
- After sorting out all the unwanted tweets, simply remove them via the ETD.
If you are looking for a reliable way to delete multiple tweets by date or tweets with certain words, Easy Tweet Deleter is an ideal choice.
TweetEraser is another simple web-based tool that allows users to easily filter and mass delete Tweets. You can delete up to 3200 tweets in one go. The limit is set to 3200 because of Twitter’s API. If you opt for their Premium Eraser plan, you can even retain your deleted data.
Using TweetEraser is a cinch.
- First, head to TweetEraser’s website and log in to your Twitter account by granting the necessary permissions.
- Then, import your Twitter data zip file into the application.
- Search for tweets using various filters. With the free plan, you can use a maximum of 3 filters but with the Standard Eraser plan, you can use up to 10.

Another easy-to-use tweet deletion tool is TweetDelete. It allows users to delete up to 3200 tweets at once. The best part is that unlike many other similar tools, TweetDelete is completely free.

Next, you will see an option to delete old tweets from one week to one year ago. Once you have selected the unwanted tweets, you can simply click on Activate TweetDelete to let the deletion process start.
Typically, after the cleaning, TweetDelete posts a tweet on your Twitter account notifying your followers that you have used the application. However, you can prevent this from happening by unchecking this option before activating the deletion. Note that the deletion cannot be undone so make sure you do not delete any important tweets!
TweetDeleter is not just famous for its amazing functionality but is also recognized for its creative and user-friendly web interface.

TweetDeleter has a free plan that allows users to delete 5 tweets per month and use 5 keyword searches as well. However, this might not be very helpful if your goal is mass deletion. In this case, you can consider looking into other plans, which cost very little anyway. With the Standard plan, you can use TweetDeleter to delete up to 500 tweets per month. With the Advanced plan, you can delete up to 3200 tweets per month. Moreover, with the Unlimited plan, there’s no deletion limit and it has several additional benefits as well.
