Run Script to Destroy Tweets Containing Media


#1

I was able to delete my tweets using Python without any tweets showing on my TL. However, all of my tweets that have pictures or videos are still there!

Is there a script code to destroy all tweets containing media? I want a fresh start and I would really appreciate some help!

There is no official way to do this. The Tweet delete endpoint is only something to delete some amount of Tweets and it is not intended for a complete wipe, so If you use it for this case (which is quite card, since there are rate limits), you might end up still seeing some of the Tweets as it might take a while until the servers fully updated/synced. But after some time, all Tweets should be gone, which were successfully deleted with the delete API endpoint. If not, this could be a possible API bug and some more information would be great.
