4 min readJan 19, 2021

Has your tweet number begun to be trouble for you? Do you often ask yourself, “how can I change the tweet count?”

The Twitter tweet count represents the total number of tweets sent by a Twitter account. Some of us may worry about our accounts’ tweet count, especially once they want to make a fresh beginning.

There is no way to hide a Twitter tweet count, but we can change the tweet counter by deleting tweets. Twitter does not let you access and delete beyond the most recent 3,200 tweets. So, on your Twitter Timeline, neither you can view nor delete your old tweets manually to change the tweet counter.

That’s why many people may come with questions like;

  • “How can I delete tweets and change the tweet count?”
  • “How can I fix tweet count?”
  • “Why my tweet count is wrong?

However, the solution is quite simple. To delete your tweets and change the tweet number if they are more than 3,200, you will need a Twitter Archive delete tool like Circleboom’s. How to then? Let’s follow the steps below:

How can I delete tweets and change the tweet count?

Before beginning, request your Twitter archive to change the Twitter tweet count on your Twitter dashboard. If you don’t know how to download the Twitter archive, here, you can find the instruction: “ How To Download My Twitter History Archive”.
