Twitter is one of the busiest social network with receiving thousands of tweets every second. If you are an active Twitter user you should be tweeting tens of tweets everyday for sure. I am having an average of 42 tweets per day on my Twitter account @shaanhaider and I have tweeted more than 76.5K so far which is really huge I think.

So if you are a heavy Twitter user then, chances are that someday you would like to clean up your Twitter profile and delete some or all of the tweets for whatever reason. Twitter does not provide the feature to delete all your tweets or Direct Messages aka DM. Deleting tweets manually one by one is really a boring and hectic task. And if you got few thousand tweets posted by you then, it will take days to delete them all.

Earlier I have shared how to delete all Twitter Direct Messages in just one click. And in this post I am sharing about a Twitter app called Twitter Archive Eraser using which you can delete all your tweets together fast and easily.

The best thing about the Twitter Archive Eraser is that it also gives you the option select a particular month, hashtag or type of tweets like ReTweets to delete them only which is really useful if you want to get rid of a particular type of tweets or a hashtag campaign in which you have participated earlier etc. So, have a look on the utorial below about how to delete your all tweets easily.
