How to search by tweets, retweets, or tweet replies

Searching for something is always a hassle. And we want to help you as much as possible.

With this feature you'll be able to browse your Twitter history based on type of content – be that by tweets, retweets, or replies. On top of that, you can filter that content by popularity and engagement – how many retweets, likes, or comments received. 

Select “my tweets” to only see tweets that you've published on Twitter. Select “only retweets” to see what you've retweeted, and perhaps – inherently endorsed. This is a useful tool to identify any potential discrepancies of opinion that you might not share anymore. Select “only replies” to see the commentary you've offered on Twitter. Identify which beef you might not want to be available online anymore, select what doesn't meet “today you's” standards, and delete the chaff with one click.

Can I also search tweets that I have liked (favourited)?

Absolutely! That's a different feature, you can learn more about it here. You can use the same powerful search tool to filter out the tweets you've liked (aka favourited) and unlike what you want to. You can unlike tweets in bulk, and even set up automatic Tweet unliking for an extra layer of protection and privacy.

Can I choose to delete only less-popular tweets and retweets?

Yes! You can use our advanced sorting options and filter tweets based on engagement they received – how many retweets, comments, and likes they received. Select the ones you don't want to keep and delete them with a few clicks. Curate your Twitter profile and put your best foot forward. Not to mention, it's just plain fun to take a scroll through your most popular tweets and bask in the warm glow of social media acknowledgement.
