Want to delete all tweets on your Twitter account? In this article, we will be teaching how to do just that.
Twitter is an online news and social networking service on which users interact with messages known as “tweets”. This is not to be confused with the Direct Message which is private and can only be seen by the two people involved unless someone screenshots it.
Tweets, on the other hand, can be seen by everyone, except your account is locked then only your followers will be able to see your tweets. There are so many reasons why someone would want to delete all tweets he or she has ever tweeted.
Maybe a fresh start is needed or he/she doesn’t want something he/she tweeted in the past to come back and hunt them. However, this can still happen if someone has already taken a screenshot of your tweet(s). But that’s highly unlikely except you are a public figure but even at that, I doubt someone somewhere has taken a screenshot of all your tweets.
Whichever reason you might have for wanting to delete all tweets, you can simply use the steps below to do just that.
How To Delete All Tweets On Twitter
There are numerous services that can delete all your tweets on your Twitter profile.
