The site even offers an option to delete your tweets every x days. To reduce your carbon footprint as much as possible, I invite you to use this option. Otherwise, you can return to the service regularly to delete your posts.

You also have a software called Twitter Archive Eraser: it allows for a much more precise deletion by selecting the months to delete.

Specifying months to delete

If you have posted legendary tweets, you can easily identify them by looking in the stats column. This tool allows you to delete posts that are less than 6 months old for free. However, to go back further, you will have to pay a few extra euros.
