01. Searching for Tweets

How can I find the tweets I want to delete?

It's really simple. The most convenient way is to search tweets based on certain keywords included in the tweet text. You can also sort tweets based on tweet type, media attached or based on the time period when tweets were published.

Can I search through all of my tweets?

You can search for and delete your last 3,200 tweets, due to Twitter API restrictions. If you want to delete older tweets you have to use our Upload Archive functionality to upload all of your tweets to our system. In this case you will be able to search through all your tweets.

Can I search for a tweet even if I do not want to delete it?

Sure. :) Our system is the most powerful tweet search tool in the Universe. You can also use it to just find tweets. It's always fun to step back and take a look at what you’ve tweeted a few years ago. Use our service to review your tweet history.

Can I find a tweet from last Christmas?

Sure! Simply use our feature to search through tweets based on certain dates. You can look up certain date or you can choose a time period you want to filter.

Can I find a tweet that I have already deleted?

No, we can search only tweets that are currently active. All tweets from our system are deleted permanently and cannot be restored.

02. Deleting Tweets

How long does it take for tweets to be deleted from my Twitter feed?

Tweets are usually deleted in couple of minutes but sometimes it can take up to several hours, as our system is based on Twitter API functionality and we depend on their ability to process all our requests.

Why should I care to delete old tweets?

Sure about that? Did you know that Google indexes your tweets and others can find them by a simple Google search. TweetDeleter is a tool to keep you safe - to make sure there is nothing on your Twitter account that you might regret later.

Does it delete tweets permanently?

Hell yeah! Like, for eternity. We love taking care of your privacy so every tweet you delete in TweetDeleter will be gone from your account.

How do I delete all my tweets at once?

Glad you asked. :) We have a secret Full Delete feature that will allow you to delete all your tweets with one click. But be careful - those tweets will be deleted permanently and it will not be possible to recover them. Even Chuck Norris won’t be able to recover them. Please take into account that due to Twitter API restrictions we can import and delete your latest 3,200 tweets. If you want to delete older tweets you have to use our Upload Archive feature. This will allow our system to access all your tweets and afterwards Full Delete will be able to delete all your tweets without any limitations.

Why there is a daily delete limit?

Unfortunately there are many restrictions insending a large number of requests through Twitter’s API functionality. Accordingly, we cannot offer to delete an unlimited amount of tweets for all our clients that are using a Free account. If you want to delete a higher number of tweets please upgrade your account to our Premium or Unlimited pricing plans.

How does Auto Delete work?

This is actually a really cool feature if you don’t want old tweets to stay in your Twitter feed. Auto delete allows you to schedule the TweetDeleter system to continuously monitor you profile and delete tweets if they exceed your defined limits. You can delete tweets based on two options: automatically delete tweets that are older than certain number of days and/or delete tweets that are above certain tweet count. Use this feature to keep your Twitter profile clean from old tweets.

Why don't I see all my tweets in your system?

Due to Twitter’s API restrictions we can import only 3,200 of your latest tweets. If you want to see, search and delete older tweets you have to use our Archive Upload feature to import all tweets from your Twitter feed.

Why do deleted tweets still show up in my Twitter profile?

Sometimes it takes a while to update deleted tweets on your twitter profile. Usually it will take couple of minutes but sometimes it may take up to two hours.

I deleted tweets but the Twitter tweet count on my profile hasn’t changed.

Unfortunately this a problem on Twitter’s side as in many cases they do not update the tweet count number,even if the tweets themselves are deleted. We have informed Twitter about this issue but it has not been fully resolved.

I Deleted something I wanted to keep, is there a way to recover it?

No, TweetDeleter doesn't store copies of your tweets, it deletes them permanently.

How did you come up with this idea?

It all started with the simple understanding that we do a lot of damage on social media when we are young and we do not think about the consequences each time we post something on Twitter. When we tried to clean our account on Twitter we understood that there should be an easier way to find tweets we want to delete. That's why we created Tweetdeleter - a project started at Garage48 two day hackathon. Our moto is “Have fun on Twitter - TweetDeleter will Keep you Safe!”

Privacy – is my account safe with you?

100% safe - we use authorized access to Twitter database to manage all interactions with Twitter. All tweets you delete are deleted permanently and cannot be restored.
