How to Easily Find Deleted Tweets on X/Twitter

November 21, 2023

Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, some tweets get deleted, without any trace anywhere. And many times, you can delete something important from your account accidentally. Now, your thoughts are gone forever. And you can’t restore them…

But is it really so? Can we find those tweets somewhere? Let's explore a few methods that can help in the retrieval of deleted tweets on X/Twitter.

The Wayback Machine

This web-based archive retains older versions of web pages, and it can also include deleted X posts/tweets. Follow these steps to see deleted tweets:

1. Visit the Wayback Machine website.

2. Input the URL of a specific X/Twitter page that wrote the X post/tweet, and specify the date range for the deleted tweet.

3. Click on "Browse History" to reveal archived tweets/posts. Sometimes the data on this website can even include deleted images!

However, it’s important to note that this archive page doesn’t save information on every X/Twitter account. Mostly, you can use this way if you’re searching for a deleted tweet/post written on a popular account.

Google Cache method

Google automatically creates backups of web pages, including X/Twitter posts. Here's how you can access deleted posts/tweets:

1. Open the Google search page in your browser.
2. Type "Twitter" along with the Twitter username.
3. View the search results and click the three dots at the end of the URL.
4. Select "Cached" to access Google's stored version of the tweets from the account.

Again, like with the Wayback Machine, this method will work for popular and active accounts that are regularly updated.

It's important to note that while the methods above may help in recovering deleted tweets, complete retrieval is not guaranteed. Tools like Google Cache or the Wayback Machine might not archive all accounts, especially those with limited activity.
