How to search tweets by date?

It is possible to search and find tweets you never even expected to dig up. TweetDeleter's powerful search tool makes a variety of time-based searches possible from any time in history. Choose from a specific date, a range of time, a specific time of day, or even entire years. 

Say, for example, you want to take a look at the tweets you published during your college years, when frustration and youth abound. No problem - simply choose the date when you enrolled in college and set your graduation date (since:yyyy-mm-dd until:yyyy-mm-dd) to have an overview of all of the tweets from that precarious time. Then select the tweets you want to delete and they'll be gone with a couple of clicks.

How to search and delete old tweets?

Off the bat, Twitter only allows us to retrieve your 3200 most-recent tweets – this is a technical limitation defined by the Twitter API. What isn’t possible for Twitter’s advanced search is possible for TweetDeleter. To access older tweets, you'll have to download your twitter Tweet Archive, which can be found in your Twitter account settings under “Your Twitter data”, and upload it in TweetDeleter.

After your Tweet Archive is uploaded you can also easily search and browse all of your tweets and replies from the day your account was activated.

How to find both old & recent tweets based on the time of the day they were posted?

A couple of late night drinks may have resulted in some controversial tweets on your Twitter timeline. Or maybe you desperately need to find and get rid of your old, embarrassing very first tweet? We get it. It happens. Don't worry, we can help. Our smart search allows you to filter out tweets based on the time of the day when you made those tweets - Morning, Midday, Evening, Night. Filter out tweets that you published at night and we bet you'll find some fun gems. Go ahead and explore our search tools. Meanwhile, if you remember the content of the tweet, but can’t remember the date, try our keyword search!
