How to delete your tweets without losing your media!

. 9 min read

Wanna delete all your tweets without losing your photos and videos on Twitter?

Due to its nature, Twitter is suitable for sharing a lot and responding to a lot of talk and conversation about a topic. And even that must be the purpose of retweeting. Sometimes we can post many tweets about a news item on the agenda or a topic that has become a trending topic. However, as you go back in the timeline, this can feel uncomfortable and sometimes awkward. Do you feel this when you looked at your posts years ago?

And if these tweets do not reflect the new you, for example, if you have tweeted with your ex, if your political posts are at a disadvantage right now, or if you want to recreate your social media stance for a new job interview, maybe you need to delete all tweets.

If you are an active Twitter user, it will not be easy to delete old tweets one by one. Therefore, you need to delete tweets in bulk, yet Twitter itself does not provide a service like this or has a similar feature on the platform, as you can see below screenshot.

You can search by words or hashtags if you wish to delete tweets selectively

You can only view the most recent 3,200 tweets since Twitter only allows 3,200 tweets to feature on your timeline, and that is the default level of access third-party applications have to your Twitter feed.

After you finished your keyword search, just click on the red button to delete selected tweets

You can delete tweets by selecting them and then clicking the “Delete Selected Tweets” button at the top. The grid power search allows you to find tweets that you want to delete easily.
