Delete All Tweets - Find, Filter, and Delete Your Tweets
Looking for a tweet deleter, you can rely on? You can delete all your tweets in bulk or selectively via Circleboom’s tweet delete features!

Now, let’s start our operations on Twitter clean up and guide you in each step.

How to clear all tweets?

If you feel a need for a tweet deleter and need to clear the Twitter timeline of your personal or professional profile, we’ll show you how to delete all tweets at once in this section of the post.

Before we get into how to delete tweets with Circleboom, let’s look at how Twitter outlines the process for iOS and Android devices.

According to Twitter, there is no mechanism to delete Tweets in bulk, and you can only do so one at a time.

The Circleboom Delete Tweets tool will show you the last 3,200 tweets in a single dashboard if you wish to delete any of your Tweets, Retweets such as those containing a specific word, or those from previous years.

How to delete tweets and retweets?

To delete your retweets and tweets, follow the steps below:

Step #1: To receive access to the Circleboom dashboard, sign in with your Twitter account.

Follow the prompts.

Circleboom Twitter

Step #2: When you are signed in to your Twitter account, go to the Circleboom left-hand menu on the dashboard. Click the drop-icon next to “My Tweets.”

Select “Delete Tweets” from this submenu. You can also delete Retweets from the same menu.

Circleboom will list your most recent 3,200 tweets.

Because Twitter only displays 3,200 tweets on your timeline. Hence, third-party apps with default access to your Twitter profile will only see the most recent 3,200 tweets.

Step #3: Filter the results using a certain word, hashtag, or keyword.

For example, you can use the grid power search if you want to delete all of your election-related tweets.

Search the tweets you want to clear by keywords or hashtags

Step #4: Now that you’ve finished filtering terms, click Delete Selected.

Alternatively, you can delete tweets manually using the Delete button on the right side of each tweet.

You can clear old tweets based on your selection or clear all of them.

Click Delete All Tweets to delete all of your tweets at once; this is another option.

How to delete tweets by date?

To delete tweets by date, insert the date into the grid power search on the right to find tweets from that period.

Circleboom will display a list of all your tweets from that date, and you may delete the ones you don’t want by clicking “Delete Selected” again.

With Circleboom, filter your tweets by date and pinpoint the exact tweets you wanna clear.

For those who would like to follow these steps in a video tutorial, we have a quick hands-on video:
