Do you often find yourself amid heated political discussions on Twitter? Does a large army of trolls follow you and always create Twitter storms against your political views? If so, this is a must-read article for you.

Reasons to Delete Your Old Tweets

There are many reasons to clear your Twitter profile and start tweeting from scratch. We’ve compiled some of the major ones below:

Don’t Let Trolls Weaponize Your Old Tweets Against You

Are you a social media influencer with a very huge number of followers? If so, there’s a solid reason to delete your old tweets. Your enemies and trolls could weaponize your old tweets against you. There’s no denying the fact that it is difficult to understand the context of the old tweets you posted years back.

Get Rid of Old Tweets with Low Engagements

Undoubtedly, Twitter is a large platform with approximately 450 million monthly active users as of 2022. But let’s admit it: it’s difficult to get engagements especially if you don’t have a large fan following on Twitter. In the early period of our Twitter journey, we all started tweeting somewhere between zero followers and zero engagement rate. A vast majority of the tweets are still unseen.

Employment Opportunities

Are you planning to get out of your virtual Twitter world and apply for a real job? If so, you wouldn’t want your new employer to judge you by your instant crazy reactions to random news events and political discussions. After all, social media is a place of often ill informed people with fickle opinions.

Don’t Mess Up Your Personal Relations

Anyone can follow you on Twitter — your family members, relatives, neighbors, coworkers, business partners, old school friends, or even strangers. There are endless possibilities. Don’t let your heated political discussions on Twitter affect your personal relations. Regularly clear up your Twitter profile to save yourself from the embarrassment of explaining that crazy political tweet.
