How to See Someone’s First Tweet

In this post, you’ll see:

How to Find the First Tweet on Twitter

You can find the first tweet of yours or others.

Check out the steps to complete this task on Twitter. Remember, the steps are the same for the Twitter desktop version (PC) and app (Android and iPhone).

Go to your profile or someone whose first tweet you’d like to find. Note down their Twitter handle and profile created month and year.

In the Twitter search box, you need to search like this one: (from:Technologyhint) until:2015-09-01 since:2015-08-01

This search shows all the tweets posted by Technologyhint in August. As per your chosen profile, you need to change the above search.

Example: Your selected profile’s Twitter handle is example80 and was created in January 2015. You need to search like this: (from:example80) until:2015-02-01 since:2015-01-01

This one shows all the tweets posted by example80 in January. I hope you got my point. That’s all. Use the search I said above, and you’ll see that profile’s first tweet.

Notes

  • If the above steps don’t offer any results, then the profile owner doesn’t tweet at that interval or has deleted the old tweets. Here, change the since and until in the search, and you can find the first tweet.
  • Remember, if a profile owner has deleted his first tweet, that profile’s oldest tweet will be shown as the first tweet.

How to Delete Tweets on Twitter

Here, you’ll see the steps to delete a single tweet and all tweets simultaneously. Let’s begin.

How to Delete a Single Tweet

PC

Sign in to Twitter. Click on “Profile” on the left side of the screen.

Find the tweet you wish to delete and hit the “Down arrow” at the top.

Hit the “Delete” option above the “Pin to your profile” option.

In the confirmation popup, hit the “Delete” button.

Android or iPhone

Open the Twitter app.

Tap your profile picture at the top.

Hit the “Profile” option.

Find the tweet you want to delete.

Hit the “Down arrow” at the top of that tweet.

Tap on the “Delete Tweet” option.

In the confirmation popup, tap “Yes.” If you’re on an iPhone, tap “Delete” in the confirmation popup.

Notes

  • You can only delete your tweets and not others.
  • When you delete your tweet, the retweets of that tweet will get deleted. If someone retweets your tweet with their comment, that tweet will not get deleted when you remove it.

Delete All Tweets at Once

Twitter only allows us to delete tweets one by one. It doesn’t have the bulk delete feature.

So, if you’ve had hundreds or thousands of tweets, then manually deleting all those tweets is time-consuming.

Here are a couple of things to note:

  • Deleting tweets is permanent, and there is no way of getting them back.
  • I suggest you take a backup of your Twitter account before proceeding.

Let’s see the steps to delete all tweets at once.

Steps

Go to tweetdelete.net.

Hit the “Sign in with Twitter” button.

Give the login credentials of your Twitter account. Click on the “Authorize app” button.

Here’s an important thing to note: TweetDelete has a limit of 3200 tweets. Because of the Twitter API function. You can read that here.

Open the drop-down list under “Age of tweets to remove.” The options are:

  • All my tweets
  • Tweets older than one week
  • Tweets older than two weeks
  • Tweets older than one month
  • Tweets older than two months
  • Tweets older than three months
  • Tweets older than six months
  • Tweets older than one year

Select the one you prefer. Here, I’m choosing “All my tweets.” Remember, the one I’ve chosen is for deleting all tweets.

There are two more options available, and they are:

  • Only tweets containing this word/phrase
  • Run this task (You can set this task to run once or automatically every few days)

Use these options if you prefer. I left these options intact.

Select the checkbox. Hit the “Delete my tweets” button.

How to See a Twitter Timeline in Reverse Chronological Order

By default, Twitter shows the best tweets at the top of your timeline instead of the most recent tweets.

If you prefer to see tweets in reverse chronological order, here are the steps:

Open the Twitter app (Android or iPhone) or Sign in to Twitter on your PC.

Hit the icon at the top right. On a PC, you’ll see an icon beside the search box.

Hit the “See latest Tweets instead” option.

Note: To go back to default, hit the icon at the top beside the “Latest Tweets.” Hit “Go back Home.”
