How to delete Twitter data

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)

This post does not longer reflect the reality of Tweet Binder data. We are Twitter compliant and we always follow Twitter’s guidelines regarding data download. We will be updating the content of this post, so when you read it keep in mind that the content will not be updated.

Tweets and hashtags are all around us. Because it is so simple to share a tweet, we frequently do it without giving it any thought. There are tweets on every imaginable subject. Additionally, Twitter analytics statistics are available to monitor every element. Twitter is so real-time that it might be challenging to stay up with the latest trends. Twitter never stops, even if you only follow a small number of accounts.

Sometimes, though, we wish we hadn’t clicked “Tweet” at that very moment. Perhaps it’s because our opinions of the tweet at this point have changed. It can also be because we need to improve our timeline (remember that if your online presence if open can be easily tracked). Or, just because the tweet we just tweeted contains a typo. There are many good reasons to delete a tweet. Because of this, we will explain how to remove Twitter data in this post.

How to delete Twitter data

We must first understand that we are alone responsible for our own Twitter account. This implies that we have control over the data we have. Therefore, sorry but it is not possible if you are reading this text with the intention of learning how to delete Twitter data that was referred to by another Twitter user or that you had not uploaded. However, you can change any aspect of your Twitter profile. For instance, you can delete any Twitter data you wish by selecting “Edit profile” on the account page.

How to delete Twitter data from your Tweet Binder report

There are less drastic ways to delete tweets even though we now know how to do it. For instance, by creating a Tweet Binder Twitter report. Let’s learn how to accomplish it:

  1. We create a Twitter report and get the tweet count
  2. Then we generate the report for that hashtag and we click the “Dashboard” option:

    tweet binder twitter report
    Enter the tweet in your Tweet Binder report though the ‘Dashboard’ option
  3. This gives us complete access to the tweets in the report. There we can create binders and we can easily delete tweets by selecting them and clicking the “Delete tweet” option.


We hope you find this content to be helpful. As soon as you start doing it frequently, deleting a tweet becomes simpler. To prevent having to figure out how to delete a tweet, we do, however, strongly advise that you consider your tweet before you send it. We advise you to remove and manipulate the tweets in your Tweet Binder report as a result. Since tweets can be recovered and added back into the report, it is private.
