We scroll through our newsfeed, read inspiring tweets, and wind up retweeting a lot. When we check our Twitter profile, we often find it loaded with all the tweets we regret that we had retweeted.

When you find yourself in such a situation, a spring cleaning for your Twitter account may sound appealing. However, once you begin looking for the retweets you no longer want on your profile, you quickly realize that it will take a long time!

But what if I told you that you don’t need to worry about this at all? Because you can delete retweets on iPhone quickly with the new Circleboom Twitter App.

How to delete retweets on iPhone?

By clicking on the highlighted Retweet symbol in the tweet, you may undo a Retweet manually. The Retweet will be removed from your timeline, but the original Tweet will remain.

Even though this action is simple as it requires only one click or tab, the challenging and time-consuming part is to find the retweets you don’t want anymore.

Circleboom, one of the most user-friendly and comprehensive Twitter management tools, has released an iOS app that allows users to manage their Twitter accounts from their iPhones and iPads.

On your iOS devices, you can effortlessly view your account analytics, follower insights and manage your tweets with the Circleboom Twitter App. The Circleboom Twitter App has various useful features and a user-friendly design, but meanwhile, let’s concentrate on how to delete retweets on iPhone.

Circleboom Twitter offers you two easy ways to delete retweets on iPhone; you can either use the Delete Twitter Archive tool to delete all retweets at once or delete retweets selectively with the keyword search function.

#1 Delete retweets on iPhone selectively

If you want to see a complete list of your retweets and cherry-pick the ones you want to delete, you can follow the guide below to delete retweets on iPhone selectively.

Step #1: Go to the App Store and download the Circleboom Twitter iOS App.

The Circleboom Twitter iOS App allows you to access all of Circleboom’s built-in features on your mobile device through a well-designed, user-friendly interface.

Step #7: If you prefer to delete retweets on iPhone one-by-one, you need to swipe left and click “Delete.”

Or you can delete all your RTs by clicking the “Delete all RTs” button on the top right corner. Keep in mind that this function will only delete your last 3,200 retweets; if you want to delete all your retweets, check out the guide in the following section.

Step #8: If you want to delete multiple retweets at once, you should long-press on the retweets you want to delete to activate multi-selection.

Once you activate this feature, you can bulk delete your retweets at once. When you complete your selection, click “delete selected RTs.”

That’s easy to delete retweets on iPhone!

We have also prepared a video tutorial to delete your retweets with Circleboom Twitter if you prefer to do it on a desktop:

#2 Delete all ReTweets

If you want to delete all your retweets (not only those in your last 3,200 tweets), you can use Circleboom’s Twitter Archive tool. This tool comes with many different sorting and filtering options like filter by date, keyword, user, or hashtag and filter by media type.

You should log in to your Circleboom account on your preferred web browser on your iPhone to use this tool.

Below, you can find a detailed step-by-step guide to delete all retweets. But before moving on to the guide, you need to get your Twitter Archive from the Twitter app itself. Don’t worry; it isn’t a complicated process, and we have prepared an easy how-to guide for you. Follow the steps in the guide to download your Twitter Archive.

Step #1: Log in to your Circleboom Twitter account on your web browser.

If you don’t have an account yet, it only takes a few clicks to sign up.

Step #2: Open the left-hand menu by clicking the three lines symbol on the top left corner.

Then, select the “My Tweets” feature.

Step #3: Once you click it, a dropdown menu will open.

Here, select the “Delete Twitter Archive” option.

Step #4: On this dashboard, click the “Start here” button if you have already downloaded your Twitter Archive.

Ensure that you have your “tweet.js” file on your iPhone before moving on to the next step.

Step #5: Click on the “drop files to upload” box to select your tweet.js file.

As you click it, a new window will open. Here, find and select the proper file.

Step #6: Now, you are on the dashboard where the magic happens! First of all, select the “delete my retweets” option at the top of the page.

If you don’t want to delete all your retweets, you can use the filters.

Enjoy various filtering options while deleting retweets on iPhone!

You can filter your retweets by;

  • Date: In your Twitter archive file, you may choose dates and delete retweets from a specific period by selecting the “Start Date” and “End Date.”
  • Specific keyword: To find retweets that contain a particular hashtag, mentions, or keyword, use the free text search box.
  • Language: You can also delete retweets in a specific language. You should select the desired language in the language box to filter it.
  • Media Type: You can use this filter to delete retweets with or without media attached to them.

Step #7: After you’ve chosen your filters, Circleboom will show you the total number of retweets in your Twitter archive file that fit your filters.

After your approval, Circleboom will delete all your retweets matching your criteria.
