People are always asking me or asking on Twitter of a quick way to bulk delete DMs, as its rather tedious to delete them one by one. I’m always giving out the link, so I this maybe more helpful.
What you need is DM Whacker.
DM Whacker is a brilliant little bookmarklet that deletes all of your direct messages from your profile.
It definitely works in Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari, not sure what others.
There are various options
- All DM’s
- All sent
- All received
- DM’s from a certain user
Or in advances features
DM’s containing a certain text.
Note – It will also delete all the DM’s in your recipients inbox (so they will know you have deleted them)
Here are the instuctions from the site http://dcortesi.com/tools/dm-deleter/
Drag the link below to your bookmarks bar (or right click and save in bookmarks) and then open your Direct Messages page in Twitter. Click the bookmarklet you created and select whether you want to delete all direct messages, or just direct messages from a specific user (No @ in front of their name).
Please note that when you delete a message from your Sent mailbox, it will delete it from the recipient’s Inbox. The same applies for messages you have received.
Bookmarklet: DM Whacker
There is also a link to donate on the website if you like this, as it is free tool.
