When did you jump on the micro-blogging bandwagon? Do you remember your first tweet?
In the past the only way to get your achieve of past tweets was to download them on the backend of your own personal Twitter account. Now, Twitter has indexed all public tweets since 2006.
The benefits of this is knowledge and information. Tweets have captured every day experiences and major historical events. You can find comprehensive results for many live events, conferences, industry discussions, trending hashtag conversations and more.
The downside? You may have not made the most valuable tweets during your early twitter years.
If you are searching for indexed Tweets, they may appear in the “All” tab of search results on the Twitter web client and Twitter for iOS & Twitter for Android apps.
If you are looking to delete old Tweets, you have a few options:
1.) Be Drastic – Delete Your Account (we don’t recommend this)
2.) Manually delete each old Tweet (time consuming)
3.) Discover your #FirstTweet
4.) Advanced Search Yourself (you can delete Tweets after searching from:username)
