How to take back control of your Twitter account

How to take back control of your Twitter account

You may have created a twitter account in haste or had a great idea or simply wanted to to try it out. Whatever your reason for creating a Twitter account you may now be having second thoughts about that decision. It maybe because your thinking has changed or the direction of the account needs updating or simply you want to take back control of your data. Although your Twitter account will forever stay available for others to see you can still control your public profile of your account. It is a lot harder than most would think. Trying to read your twitter feed from the start is a task in itself as Twitter limits 3,200 tweets on your public profile. There are other routes to reading your older tweets if you have more. You may have forgotten your old tweets but Twitter does not. Removing likes or retweets becomes even more problematic. Twitter does not make it easy to remove your data in bulk. There are ways to delete your tweets, likes and retweets in bulk. Below are the steps that I found to work the best.

There are many paid services that are very reliable however below are working solutions that do not cost a penny.


  1. Go to:{username}/likes
  2. Open the console and run the following JavaScript code:

setInterval(() => {

for (const d of document.querySelectorAll(‘div[data-testid=”unlike”]’)) {


window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)

}, 1000)

Tweets, Re-Tweets and Media:

Below are my choices in preferences. Options 2 and 3 offer paid services and their free options

are limited

TwitWipe : Deletes tweets, likes and retweets. It takes a few goes but does work.

TweetDelete :Very easy to use and works the first time. However limited to 3,200 free tweets to delete.

CircleBoom :Fairly easy to use. It is a powerful tool. The free version is limited.

Take back control of your data.
