4 tools to massively delete tweets

Now, if what you want are mass forms of deleting tweets, TechMarkup will present 4 applications that are usually very effective. But first, it is important to know that Twitter does not recommend the use of this type of tools, mainly due to the temporary blocking that they can cause in a profile during the process.

The network recommends to create a new account with a temporary user, change the old user and update the new account for the current user (although it’s not very practical, not to mention that you lose all the followers and direct messages). Now yes, these are the tools:

1. TweetEraser

If what you are looking for is a simple and direct way to delete tweets, then TweetEraser may be the solution. The tool allows all content that has already been posted on Twitter to be searched using hashtags, dates or keywords, as well as deleting one or more tweets together.

You just have to enter the site, enter with the Twitter username and password, allow the application to access the account and that’s it. The tool also works in a mobile version, in case you want to delete from a smartphone either Tablet.

2.TweetDelete

Another quite functional solution is TweetDelete, which allows you to delete all tweets instantly, as well as providing a schedule so that periodic cleanups are scheduled automatically.

For example, if you want to delete tweets every 30 days, just set that period in the tool. It is worth noting that the available period ranges from a week to a year interval.

3.Delete Multiple Tweets

This option is a little simpler, but still very effective. Through the tool you can see all the tweets and select those that you want to delete. Thus, they can be eliminated quickly all at the same time.

The app displays 100 tweets at a time by default and they appear on the front page. From there you can choose to mark only the ones you want to delete or mark all at once. If you prefer to delete larger volumes, you can select the option 500 or even 3000 tweets to have them deleted faster.

4. Delete All My Tweets

If what you want is simply to delete everything at once and without leaving traces, the ideal option is Delete All My Tweets. This tool is the most practical and its function is only one: delete everything at once. There are no options, cleaning schedules, or advanced searches here.

The steps are the same as for the other applications: enter the site, authorize Delete All My Tweets to access the account, confirm and delete all tweets from the profile. If you have more than 3,200 tweets, you have to repeat the process until they are completely deleted. But yes, keep in mind that once they are deleted, it will not be possible to recover them.
