How to Delete Twitter Search History on PC and Android

Your search on Twitter can be classified into two forms:

Normal Search

Saved Search

Let’s see both of them in detail.

Normal Search

As the name indicates, it is the search you made on Twitter.

When you place the cursor in the Twitter Search Box, you can see the normal searches under the “Recent searches” section.

Keep in mind that your normal searches will not be available to you on all Twitter platforms. For example: if you have searched for “Android” on the Twitter app, then it will not be shown in the web version of your Twitter account. It will be shown to you on the Twitter app only.

Saved Search

Saved searches are searches that you have saved on Twitter.

Each Twitter account is allowed to have up to 25 saved searches.

When you place the cursor in the Search Box, you can see the searches you have saved under the “Saved searches” section.

Your saved searches are available to you on all Twitter platforms. For example, you saved a search on PC. However, that search will be shown to you on the Twitter app.

How to Save a Search on Twitter

Once you see the search result, just click on the Overflow menu (three vertical dots) on the right side of the screen.
