Retweets are one of the most interesting features of Twitter. It’s the feature that sets Twitter apart from all other social media platforms.

However, if you’re a regular Twitter user, you might retweet way more than you actually want to.

And, often, when you look back, your Twitter account is filled with too many irrelevant retweets.

The good thing is that you can delete all retweets with the same ease as you posted them.

Tools like Circleboom have made it much easier to delete old retweets or tweets at once.

By following simple steps, you can get rid of all the old retweets effortlessly.

In this article, we will demonstrate the exact steps that will help you delete retweets in bulk from your Twitter account.

If you want to delete all retweets that you’ve ever posted on Twitter, then you will need to download your Twitter archive and upload it on Circleboom. Circleboom’s Twitter archive eraser can delete all retweets. Here are the steps to do so:

  • Login to the Circleboom dashboard by authenticating your Twitter account.
  • From the Circleboom menu, select -> “My Tweets” -> “Delete Old Tweets.”
