  • On the next screen, you will see three checkboxes to select all tweets, retweets, and replies. Click on the checkbox next to retweets and uncheck others to delete just retweets.

How to Delete Retweets with Specific Keywords/Usernames/Hashtags

Using the Twitter archive, you can also delete tweets that contain certain keywords, usernames or hashtags.

  • Follow the steps above, and go to “Any keyword/username/hashtag search.”
  • Enter your keyword in the search box.
  • Circleboom will delete all the retweets that contain the keyword from your Twitter account.

How to Delete Selected Retweets

When you delete tweets using the Twitter archive, you can’t see each tweet before it gets deleted. But, with Circleboom’s delete retweets feature, you can look at each retweet before erasing it.

  • Go to the Circleboom menu on the left of the dashboard. Click on the drop-icon next to “My Tweets.”
  • Select “Delete RTs” from the drop-down.
  • Circleboom will list your most recent 3,200 retweets. You can only access the recent 3,200 tweets because Twitter allows only 3,200 tweets to appear on your timeline and that’s the default access third-party apps have over your Twitter account.

But no worry! On Circleboom, you don't have a 3200 limit. You can delete more than 3200 tweets, retweets, and likes with Circleboom's amazing delete tools.

How to delete more than 3,200 tweets at once? Solved!
I’m sure you already noticed Twitter allows neither bulk tweet delete. However, some reputable third-party tools allow you to bulk delete all of your past tweets. And Circleboom Twitter is by far the best tool on the list.
  • You can select tweets you want to delete and select “Delete Selected Retweets” at the top. The grid power search helps you quickly search for retweets you want to erase.

If you want to follow these steps in our video tutorial, here it is:

What is the difference between a quote tweet and retweet?

A retweet is a feature on Twitter that allows users to share someone else's tweet with their own followers. When a user retweets a tweet, it appears on their profile and in the timeline of their followers. A retweet can be done by clicking on the "Retweet" button under a tweet.

A quote tweet, on the other hand, is a tweet that includes a previous tweet with an added comment or message. When a user quote tweets a tweet, the original tweet appears embedded in their tweet with their added comment or message. A quote tweet can be interpreted as a "retweet with comment"

The main difference between a retweet and a quote tweet is that a retweet simply shares the original tweet, while a quote tweet allows the user to add their own thoughts, opinions, or commentary to the tweet. A quote tweet can also be used to provide context or add additional information to the original tweet.

Another difference is that when you retweet a tweet, the original author receives a notification that you retweeted their tweet, while when you quote tweet a tweet, the original author only receives a notification if you tag them in your tweet.

Can I see who retweeted my tweet?

Yes, you can see who retweeted your tweet on Twitter by viewing the "Retweets" section of your tweet. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Twitter profile and find the tweet that you want to see who retweeted it.
  2. Click on the number next to the "Retweets" icon, which looks like two arrows forming a circle. This will bring up a list of all the users who have retweeted your tweet.
  3. The list of users who have retweeted your tweet will include their Twitter username and profile picture. You can click on each username to visit their profile and see their other tweets and activity.

Note that if your tweet has been retweeted many times, you may not be able to see the full list of all the users who have retweeted it. In this case, you can use a third-party tool or service to view more detailed analytics and data about your tweet's retweets.
