Sound’s good? Let’s get started.

Reasons to Delete Twitter Messages from Both Sides?

Perhaps, you were frustrated with your friend and you sent a message that you would otherwise never send. Perhaps, you sent a drunken text that you regret later. Whatever the reason is, what we all know is the fact that we regret it later.

Imagine waking up to a weird text from your friend, which is their response to the text you sent when you were drunk. If you had sent the message through SMS or email, we are sorry to say that it’s too late. There is nothing you can do to delete the message from your friends’ inbox.

However, if you had dropped a message on Twitter, you can simply delete it. The best part about Twitter is that it deletes messages from yours as well as the recipient’s inbox. Basically, you can delete the text from your Twitter inbox to get the message erased from your and the recipient’s inbox.

Important Note: Before we discuss the ways you can delete Twitter messages from both sides, make sure that there is no way to find out if the person has read the text or not.

Some people activate push notifications for Twitter DMs. So, if the recipient has enabled that option, they can read the message from their notification bar easily.

Of course, there is a good chance they don’t have this option turned on. After all, people receive hundreds of texts on Twitter every day. They may not want to be disturbed every time they receive a text from a certain person.
