Twitter Archive Eraser is a free software to delete old tweets from your timeline, your Favorites, and DMs. Unlike other tweets erasing websites, it doesn’t fetch tweets from your Twitter timeline. Instead of that, it uses your Twitter archive saved on your PC to fetch old tweets (including the retweets) and bulk erase selected or all tweets. The effect also reflects on your Twitter timeline and your timeline is cleaned of unwanted tweets deleted by this software.
This software also provides option to delete tweets of a particular month and year only. So you have a complete choice which tweets you want to delete and the same goes for Favorites and DMs. Apart from this, you can also filter tweets by entering the text, using the regular expression, or by username.
