Understanding how people are 'hiding' tweets


Ok. TBH, i dont know what category this falls under. Basically, I have a friend who is using twitter, and it says he has 5599 tweets, but only FOUR show on his profile… How… Someone just tell me… I’ve been trying to figure this out for years lol.


As far as I know even deleted tweets count, there is no way to get deleted Tweets using the API though, that’s intentional.
There is no way to “hide” Tweets except by protecting your account.
