One of the basic feature of Twitter is Direct Messages, popularly known as DM in short. If you use Twitter DMs a lot to communicate with your friends on Twitter then, you may a have lots of messages in your DM Inbox. Though it does not affect your Twitter account in any way, chances are that you would like to delete your Twitter DMs and clean your inbox someday.

Twitter does not provide the facility to delete the Twitter direct messages in bulk. If you want to delete Twitter DMs then, you will have to delete the messages manually one by one.

Though the official Twitter mobile app let you delete a bulk of messages of a conversation with a particular user, it does not let you delete all DM together with one click. But now there is a nice and useful Twitter app is available using which you can delete all your Twitter direct messages in one click.
