In this post, we’ll see:
How to Find the First Tweet on Twitter
You can find the first tweet of yours or others.
Check out the steps to complete this task on Twitter. Remember, the steps are the same for the Twitter desktop version (PC) and app (Android and iPhone).
Go to your profile or someone whose first tweet you’d like to find. Note down their Twitter handle and profile created month and year.
In the Twitter search box, you need to search like this one: (from:Technologyhint) until:2015-09-01 since:2015-08-01
This search shows all the tweets posted by Technologyhint in August. As per the profile you’ve chosen, you need to change the above search.
Example: Your selected profile’s Twitter handle is example80 and was created in January 2015. You need to search like this: (from:example80) until:2015-02-01 since:2015-01-01
This one shows all the tweets posted by example80 in January. I hope you got my point. That’s all. Use the search as I said above, and you’ll see that profile’s first tweet.
- If the above steps don’t offer any results, then it means that the profile owner doesn’t tweet at that interval or has deleted the old tweets. Here, change the since and until in the search, and you can find the first tweet.
- Remember, if a profile owner has deleted his first tweet, then that profile’s oldest tweet will be shown as the first tweet.
How to Delete a Retweet on Twitter
What is a Retweet
A retweet is a repost of a Twitter user’s tweet. You can retweet a tweet of yours or others. Remember, you can retweet with or without comment.
How to Retweet
Log in to Twitter on PC. Or open the Twitter app on Android or iPhone.
Find the tweet you want to retweet.
Hit the “Retweet” icon, which is between “Reply” and “Like” at the bottom of the tweet.
You will see two options: Retweet and Retweet with comment.
If you want to retweet without comment, then hit on “Retweet.” You’ve retweeted.
If you want to retweet with the comment, then:
Hit on “Retweet with comment,” enter your comment, and then hit the “Retweet” button. You’ve retweeted with your comment.
Steps to Delete a Retweet
Go to your profile. Find the retweet you want to remove.
Hit the “Retweet” icon at the bottom of it. Hit on the “Undo Retweet” option.
Note: The steps to delete a tweet and retweet with comment are the same.
How to Delete Tweets on Twitter
Here, you’ll see the steps to delete a single tweet and all tweets at once. Let’s begin.
How to Delete a Single Tweet
Sign in to Twitter. Click on “Profile” on the left side of the screen.
Find the tweet you wish to delete and hit the “Down arrow” at the top of it.
Hit the “Delete” option, which is above the “Pin to your profile” option.
In the confirmation pop-up, hit the “Delete” button.
Android or iPhone
Open the Twitter app.
Tap your profile picture at the top.
Hit the “Profile” option.
Find the tweet you want to delete.
Hit the “Down arrow” at the top of that tweet.
Tap on the “Delete Tweet” option.
In the confirmation pop-up, tap “Yes.” If you’re on an iPhone, tap “Delete” in the confirmation pop-up.
- You can only delete your tweets and not others.
- When you delete your tweet, the retweets of that tweet will get deleted. If someone retweets your tweet with their comment, then that tweet will not get deleted when you remove your tweet.
To Delete All Tweets at Once
Twitter only allows us to delete tweets one by one. It doesn’t have the bulk delete feature.
So, if you’ve had hundreds or thousands of tweets, then deleting all those tweets manually is a time-consuming task.
Here are a couple of things to note:
- Deleting tweets is permanent, and there is no way of getting them back.
- I suggest you take a backup of your Twitter account before proceeding.
Let’s see the steps to delete all tweets at once.
Go to tweetdelete.net.
Hit the “Sign in with Twitter” button.
Give the login credentials of your Twitter account. Click on the “Authorize app” button.
Here’s an important thing to note: TweetDelete has a limit of 3200 tweets. Because of the Twitter API function. You can read that here.
Open the drop-down list under “Age of tweets to remove.” The options are:
- All my tweets
- Tweets older than one week
- Tweets older than two weeks
- Tweets older than one month
- Tweets older than two months
- Tweets older than three months
- Tweets older than six months
- Tweets older than one year
Select the one you prefer. Here, I’m choosing “All my tweets.” Remember, the one I’ve chosen is for deleting all tweets.
There are two more options available, and they are:
- Only tweets containing this word/phrase
- Run this task (You can set this task to run once or automatically every few days)
Use these options if you prefer. I left these options intact.
Select the checkbox. Hit the “Delete my tweets” button.
How to Delete All Likes on Twitter at Once
How to Like a Tweet on Twitter
If you like a tweet, then it means that you appreciate that tweet.
Let’s see how to like a tweet (it can be yours or others).
Remember, the following steps apply to the Twitter desktop version (PC) and app (Android and iPhone).
Find the tweet you want to like.
At the bottom of the tweet, you can see the “Like” icon, which is beside “Retweet.” Hit it.
To see your likes, go to the “Likes” tab on your profile.
To Remove a Like
Go to the “Likes” tab on your profile.
Find the tweet for which you want to delete the like.
Hit the “Liked” icon.
Refresh the page if you’re on a PC.
Steps to Delete All Likes
Go to tweetdelete.net.
Hit “Sign in with Twitter” button.
Provide your Twitter account login credentials. Hit “Authorize app” button.
Hit “Likes” at the top.
You’ll be notified that you can delete up to 3200 recent likes. You can read more about it there.
Beneath the “Twitter account,” you see your Twitter account.
Beneath “Age of likes to delete,” you see a drop-down list. Open it and you will see these options:
- All my likes
- Likes older than one week
- Likes older than two weeks
- Likes older than one month
- Likes older than two months
- Likes older than three months
- Likes older than six months
- Likes older than one year
Choose the one you prefer. I’m choosing “All my likes.”
Agree to the terms by selecting the checkbox.
Click on “Delete my likes” button. That’s all.
How to See a Twitter Timeline in Reverse Chronological Order
By default, Twitter shows the best tweets at the top of your timeline instead of the most recent tweets.
If you prefer to see tweets in reverse chronological order, here are the steps:
Open the Twitter app (Android or iPhone) or Sign into Twitter on your PC.
Hit the icon at the top right. If you’re on a PC, you’ll see an icon beside the search box.
Hit the “See latest Tweets instead” option.
Note: To go back to default, hit the icon at the top beside the “Latest Tweets.” Hit “Go back Home.”
