Is there any way to recover deleted tweets?


I deleted about 3,000 tweets using third-party software, and I deeply regret it. All of my tweets from 2015-2020 are gone. I know this is my fault, and I should've thought it through, but I am desperate and need the Internet's help. Is there NO way to retrieve these? Nothing you post online is ever ACTUALLY gone (or so I think), so if anyone has any advice on how I could get these tweets back, please let me know.

Twitter is one of the most popular social networking platforms. Users can get the latest news and entertainment and communicate with friends. Have you ever accidentally deleted tweets? It could be a real pain if they are essential. You may lose some crucial images while deleting tweets.

You must be wondering how to see deleted tweets and recover deleted Twitter photos. Fortunately, there are some available ways to retrieve deleted tweets. This post will help you efficiently view deleted tweets and restore deleted Twitter photos/images.

How to see deleted tweets for free?

How to see deleted tweets? Users can easily download and access their Twitter archive, including accidentally deleted tweets, to view deleted tweets. There are three different ways to see deleted tweets. It’s possible to recover tweets you deleted weeks or months ago. You can choose one to restore deleted tweets and others.

Method 1. Recover deleted tweets via the Twitter archive

Using a Twitter archive can be a comprehensive way to view every tweet you’ve ever posted, which means you can get your deleted tweets from your Twitter account. You can download a copy of your Twitter archive by following the steps.

Step 1. Log in to your Twitter account.

Step 2. Click on “More” on the left sidebar. And then select “Settings and Support” > “Settings and Privacy”.


Step 3. On this page, click on “Your Account” > “Download an archive of your data”. Then Twitter will verify your account by asking you to input a password and send a code to your phone for confirmation.


Step 4. After you confirm to download the archive of your data, you will receive a mail from Twitter Team and get a ZIP file that contains all your tweets posted before.

Step 5. Open the folder and click on “index.html” with a web browser. And then, you can see all your deleted tweets in the same format as the Twitter web.

Tips: The mail will be valid for only 30 days, so please take action quickly to recover deleted Tweets. Within 30 days, you can’t make another downloading request. Besides, you have no access to tweets when opening the Html file.

Method 2. Find deleted tweets using the Wayback Machine

Compared with method 1, this method is easier to get the specific deleted tweet back. But it requires the URL of the deleted tweet or your Twitter page. If you have shared the deleted tweet with others before, it’s easy to get it via the WayBack Machine.    

The WayBack Machine, created by the Internet Archive, records the Internet and takes screenshots of web pages. It’s a free online tool to check the previous state of a specific page. You can’t access total tweets because the WayBack Machine couldn’t capture all screenshots. But it’s a workable method to see the deleted tweet from a deleted Twitter account. Follow the steps to find the screenshot of deleted Tweets.

Step 1. Go to the WayBack Machine and then type the URL of the Twitter page you want to view.

Step 2. Click “Browse History”. If the WayBack Machine has crawled it before, it will show the screenshots by date.

Step 3. Select the year and day of the deleted tweet page; then, you can view the deleted tweet.


Method 3. See deleted tweets with Google Cache

If the two methods above can’t help you recover deleted tweets, you can also view the deleted tweets via Google Cache. The problem of “how to see deleted tweets” can be solved in only two steps.

Step 1. Open your Chrome and search for your Twitter page on Google Search.

Step 2. Click the three-dot menu and select Cached.


Then you can see the cached page of the Twitter account. This method also can be used to find others’ deleted tweets. If you want this method to work, you need to ensure that you haven’t cleared your Google Cache.
