How to Delete Tweets by Date (2024)

. 4 min read

Do you want to delete that one specific tweet that you posted last year?  

You can’t get enough time to delete all your tweets from 2021? Or whether it’s that one tweet you published last Valentine’s that needs to be erased? Or maybe you want to delete all tweets older than one year!

Delete Old Tweet By Date

If you feel the same way and need to clean up your personal or professional profile, we'll show you how to delete all of your tweets by date in this article.

Imagine a tweet that was sent years or even months ago; when you or someone else looks at it, it is no longer in context. It's impossible to say what subjects were popular, what the political atmosphere was like, or what everyone was pretending to be furious about when looking back at someone's timeline from years ago.

Whatever your reason to delete tweets by date, with the right tool, getting rid of old tweets is no longer a problem.

You can delete all tweets published on a specific date/month/year. Using Circleboom can let you delete all your tweets within seconds which might take hours to find on Twitter.

How to delete tweets by date

This article will walk you through the exact steps to delete tweets by date. We will follow two methods:

The first method is to delete all tweets using the Twitter archive when you want to delete all tweets by year or month, you define!

The second method is by searching and selecting the tweets you want to delete.

Method 1: Delete all Tweets from a particular date/month/year

With no exceptions whatsoever, when you are ready to delete all tweets in between a time period, you can follow the steps below:

Step #1: Log in to the Circleboom dashboard by authenticating your Twitter account.

It will take a few seconds merely.

Step #2: Once logged in, go to the Circleboom menu on the left, select “My Tweets,” and select “ Delete Twitter Archive” to delete old tweets by date.

You will be taken to a new page, click on Start here to begin.

Click on "Start here" to upload your Twitter archive file (tweet.js).

Step #3: Upload your Twitter archive and click on “Approve.” But first, you should know how to download your Twitter archive.

On the next screen, you will see the option to “Filter by Date.” Add the “start date” and “end date” to delete tweets by date.  

Tweets from the start date and end date and included when deleting tweets.

Apply filters to your tweets to delete old tweets by year.

By following the steps above, you will be able to delete old tweets by year. You can list your tweets from a particular date/month/year.

As I mentioned before, this method will make sure that all the tweets from the selected dates are deleted with no exceptions. ( You have no 3200 limit here!)

Further, for those who would like to follow these steps one by one through a video tutorial, here it is:

Method 2: Delete selected tweets from a specific date/month/year

This section is for you if you don’t want to delete all tweets blindly and go through them before hitting the delete button. To delete selected tweets, follow these steps:

  • Go to the Circleboom dashboard and select “Delete Tweets” from the “My Tweets” sub-menu.
  • If you want to search tweets of a particular date, simply enter the date (for example 3/4/2018) in the grid power search on the right. Circleboom will list all your tweets from that date, you can select the tweets you want to delete by year and click on “Delete Selected”.
  • If you want to delete retweets from a particular year, just enter the year (for example, 2018) in the grid power search, and you can delete tweets selectively.

Following the steps below, you can select each or multiple tweets before deleting them. When you list your tweets using this method, please note that only your last 3,200 tweets are shown by Circleboom.

That’s because Twitter allows any user to access only the last 3,200 tweets at a time. But you can always delete all your tweets, retweets, or replies by Circleboom Twitter Archive Eraser.
