In this tutorial, I will explain a simple method to bulk delete tweets with specific words. With this method, you will be able to get tweets that contain a specific word and then you can select multiple tweets to delete them at once. The best part is that if the number of tweets is large, then you can also delete all of them at once.
Do note that if a selected tweet is deleted, then there is no way to restore it back. Also, if the deleted tweet has an attached media i.e. photo, video, or GIF then it will also be deleted.

How to bulk delete tweets with a specific word:
In order to bulk delete tweets that have a specific word, I will use a free website named Cardigan. You can use it to search tweets that contain a specific word and then delete them selectively or all of them at once.
Let’s see the steps to bulk delete tweets with specific words:
Step 1: Visit the link at the end of this tutorial and then login with your Twitter account. After that, Cardigan will fetch your tweets and display them on its interface as shown in the screenshot below.
Step 2: Now, search for a word to retrieve tweets that contain the specified word from its search box at the top. Specify a word in the search box and hit the “Enter” button to see the tweets which have that words. You can now select tweets to delete or simply delete all of them at once. In order to select tweets, click on them and the selected tweets will then appear a little lighter in color than before.
Step 3: After selecting tweets, click on the “Delete Selected” button. Now, you will see a warning box, click on the “Delete” button to confirm the deletion of tweets.
As I mentioned, it will also delete the media tweets if its caption text contains the specified word. I recommend you to carefully select tweets before deleting.
This website makes it pretty easy to delete tweets with specific words. If you also have such a need, then this website is a good solution for that.
