You can delete any of your own posts from X at any time. If you delete a post, we will reflect your updated content on X.com, X for iOS, and X for Android. Please note that you can only delete posts you have posted, you cannot delete posts from other accounts on your timeline. Learn about what actions you can take to control your X experience.
If you repost a post and later want to remove it from your profile, you can undo your repost.
How to delete a post
In the top menu, tap your profile icon.
Locate the post you want to delete.
Tap the icon located at the top of the post.
Tap Delete post.
Tap Delete to confirm.
In the top menu, you will either see a navigation menu icon or your profile icon. Tap whichever icon you have.
We do not provide a way to bulk-delete posts. You can only delete posts manually, one by one.
If you're looking to get a fresh start on your X account without losing your username, the best way to do this is to create another account with a temporary username, and then switch the username between your current account and the new account. Please see our article on changing your username for more info.
What happens to posts I delete?
When you delete a post, it is removed from your account, the timeline of any accounts that follow you, and from X search results on x.com, X for iOS, and X for Android.
Reposts of the deleted post will also be removed on x.com, X for iOS, and X for Android.
Once a post has been deleted, the post contents, associated metadata, and all analytical information about that post is no longer publicly available on X.
If other people have copied and pasted part or all of your text into their own post, their posts will not be removed.
If other people have reposted your post with a comment of their own, their posts will not be removed.
Posts may be cached or cross-posted on third-party websites, applications, or search engines. We cannot remove posts that are not on x.com, X for iOS, or X for Android.
