  • Circleboom will list your most recent 3,200 tweets. You can only access the recent 3,200 tweets because Twitter allows only 3,200 tweets to appear on your timeline and that’s the default access third-party apps have over your Twitter account. 
  • If you want to delete all your retweets, then simply click on Delete all RTs and all your retweets will be deleted.

  • If you want to search tweets with specific keywords and delete them, then you can search them using the grid power search. The grid power search enables you to search for specific users or keywords to delete retweets and tweets. This feature is a big time-saver especially when you’re focused at deleting specific tweets.
  • You can follow the same process to delete tweets as well by simply selecting “Delete Tweets” from the sub-menu.

Before Deleting your Retweets and Tweets

Some points that you need to remember before deleting your old tweets:

  • Once deleted, your retweets and tweets can’t be recovered. Hence, if you’re not sure, you might take some time before cleaning your account completely. 
  • To be on the safe side, it’s advised to anyone deleting their tweets to first download their Twitter archive. Downloading your Twitter archive is a simple process that you can learn here. Twitter will email you a .zip file with all your tweet archive.
