Topsy: Instant social insight

How do I delete my tweets on Topsy?

August 19, 2012

Topsy indexes all public Twitter accounts. We can only remove your page on Topsy if your Twitter account is set to private or has been deleted. To do so, follow these instructions:

  • Protect your tweets in your Twitter account settings or delete the account.
  • Go to your Topsy profile page: and click the SYNC button on the right.
  • Your page should now be deleted. After a few moments, refresh the page to verify.
    The sync should take effect within 15 minutes. However, sometimes it can take longer: please be patient! 

If your sync did not work after a few hours, please contact us.

If your account is not protected or deleted, even if we manually delete the current tweets, it will get reindexed and show up again. Click below for more info about Twitter, private accounts and search indexing from Twitter:
