Tweet Cleaner for iPhone allows you to quickly search and delete Tweets

Tweet Cleaner is a new iPhone app that lets you easily delete Tweets from your Twitter account. You can also easily search your timeline by keyword or date, making it easy to find the exact Tweet you may be looking for. Furthermore, Twitter only allows you see your last 3200 Tweets, but Tweet Cleaner will store older Tweets, allowing you to have your own personal archive. The first time you use it, Tweet Cleaner will load your last 3200 Tweets, then keep adding more Tweets every time you launch it.

What's great about Tweet Cleaner is its simplicity. It consists of primarily two different views: your timeline and the filter options. To delete a Tweet, you simply tap edit, then tap the Tweets you want to delete (you can choose select all if you wish to go nuclear), then tap Delete.

Although Tweet Cleaner allows you to delete your viewable Tweets, it's worth mentioning that Google's cashe may still pick a few of them up for awhile. Also, don't forget that deal Twitter made with the U.S. Library of Congress -- undeleted Tweets that are more than 24 weeks old (6 months) get sent to the Library of Congress for archiving, so even if you delete them from your stream (after 24 weeks), they will forever be in the hands of the US Government. To exclude individual tweets from this archival process, just include #noloc in your Tweet.

If you're looking for a way to easily delete all your Tweets and start fresh, check out Tweeticide, also made by the same developers.

Do you have some Tweets you need to delete? Perhaps anything that mentions an ex, or some drunken Tweets you now regret? Or perhaps you're getting ready to apply for a job and just want to make a good impression. Let us know!

Tweet Cleaner for iPhone allows you to quickly search and delete Tweets


They're charging for this thing? And almost $2? forget it. There are online desktop versions that do the same for free.

If you have hundreds or even more tweets that you want to be deleted, deleting them one by one isn't really an option.
