Step #6: You can use the Circleboom filters to ensure that you only delete old tweets that you wish to remove. To begin, you can choose whether you wish to remove all tweets, all replies, or all retweets.

If you wish to get rid of them all, tick the box next to each one. Uncheck the checkboxes if you want to keep any of these.

Pro Tip: Before you delete your tweets, be sure you have filtered them.

If you want more filters, select them from the drop-down menu next to more filters. After that, you can filter by:

  • You can select your tweet dates in your Twitter archive file, and you can delete old tweets from a certain period by selecting the “Start Date” and “End Date.”
  • You can use the free text search field to find tweets that contain a specific hashtag, mentions, or text.
  • You can also delete tweets from a certain language that are no longer relevant. To filter it, select the one you wanted in the language box.
