Twitter is one of the most popular social media platforms, with more than 350 million active users monthly. Basically, it allows you to post and interact with messages known as "tweets". Twitter has long been a reliable platform for both celebrities and politicians who want to share their ideas with their supporters. However, the social media platform has been criticized for its harassment and racism posts in recent years despite the company's endless efforts to make its social media more user-friendly.
If you are now being buried by a harassment campaign or you simply do not want your previously published tweets visible to the world. While you have always been able to delete your individual tweets, the company does not offer the option to delete all of your tweets in a single click. That does not stop third-party apps and services from springing up that promise to help you make that possible.
In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to delete Twitter message history for good on Android device. Before we begin, make sure you now have the latest version of Twitter app on your device.
How to Delete an Entire Twitter Conversation within Twitter App
As mentioned above, Twitter does not allow you to delete all of your tweets or messages at once, but it actually lets you remove the entire conversation. This approach is not recommended to everyone as it will wipe every message within a conversation and there is no way to recover it.
Step 1: First off, launch Twitter app on your Android device and then locate the conversation you wish to delete
Step 2: Tap and hold that conversation until you see the pop-up menu. From here, tap on "Delete conversation".
Alternatively, you can tap the information icon and then select "Delete conversation" from Conversation info page.

All you need to do is to connect your Twitter account, and it will delete your tweets on the time frame of your choosing.
Download Jumbo from Google Play Store and then hit the a "start cleaning" button. Jumbo will start removing all of your tweets while moving them to an archive that's accessible within the app. This gives you the second chance to recover all of your deleted messages.
Note:. Make sure you have already linked your Twitter account to Jumbo. If the process fails, try re-connecting your account and repeat the process above.

If you switch to another app, it may stop working. This could be a little bit annoying if you plan to go multitasking. Here are the steps.
