Surely you are still eating some publication on Twitter that you are not very proud of. The early days of social networks were turbulent and their operation has changed over the years, as have the users themselves.
Twitter only allows you to find the last 3,200 tweets of a user by scrolling
It is common for many people to wonder how to delete published tweets around 2010, when the social network had not yet outlined its potential.
The problem that these regretful users face is that the social network only allows them to find using scroll the last 3,200 tweetsa figure that many meet in just six months of activity.
For this reason, here we are going to explain how to access those archaic tweets that you do not want anyone to see and that do not exactly bring back good memories:
First of all, if you intend to carry out this “Delete Operation” from the desktop, all you have to do is type https://twitter.com/search-advanced in the navigation bar to access the advanced search. Another way is to carry out any search and click on “Search filters” at the top left of the screen and, from there, access the advanced search.
Once inside, a filter menu will appear in which you can establish some search parameters based on the words used, exact phrases, dates, hashtags and other options.
To access our entire personal account, you must write your username in the “From these accounts” section and set the date from which you can no longer see tweets by scrolling. This is how you access those “hidden” tweets and you can delete the ones you want.
To delete these tweets using a mobile terminal you have to do it through the search section of the application. Once in the section you have to write in the search bar “from: username since: yyyy-mm-dd until: yyyy-mm-dd”. The temporal reference is established in the Anglo-Saxon format, so it corresponds to: year-yyyy; month- mm; day- dd.
This selection establishes a time range in which to search for tweets, so if you know that a few years ago you had a time of hatred for the world or in which staying up late and tweeting was your way of life, it is recommended that you delimit the months in those who lived in a state that is not recommended for social networks to access them more easily.
