This tutorial explains how to automatically regularly delete old tweets from your Twitter timeline.
TweetDelete is a free service for Twitter to automatically remove tweets that are older than a month, six months, one week, two weeks, one year, etc. It provides preset options to monitor your Twitter timeline and delete tweets based on the option selected by you. It monitors your Twitter timeline once in a day to delete old tweets.
It also lets you delete all tweets from your Twitter timeline. However, when your account has more than 3200 tweets, then only the most recent 3200 tweets can be deleted by this service. Tweets that have been archived by Twitter won’t be deleted.
In the screenshot above, you can see the interface of this service where you can select one of the available option to delete old tweets.
Note: This service doesn’t provide an option to preview tweets that will be deleted after applying the settings. In order to preview or search old tweets, you will require some other some third-party service, like Twitario. You can also use advanced search of Twitter to search for old tweets and then use this service to delete them.
