A lot of users find it difficult to mass delete their tweets on Twitter. The main reason for this is the site’s lack of support for deleting multiple tweets. Therefore, the only way to delete a tweet is through clicking each post that you’ve posted on your account. Of course, this won’t be a problem if you are just deleting two or more tweets. It’s just that things aren’t that easy when it comes to cleaning your Twitter timeline. You cannot just delete every single tweet and waste your precious time.
Fortunately, there are a couple of reliable third-party tools that you can use to mass delete your tweets on Twitter. Through these tools, you don’t have to go through the hassle of deleting every single tweet that you’ve posted on your profile.
