How to Delete Saved Searches on Twitter [Quick Tips]

It’s easy to overlook the “Save Search” feature in Twitter, but it’s pretty useful. It allows you to save things you search for on Twitter so that whenever you click the Search bar in the corner, you’ll see a list of your favorite Twitter topics that you can click through.

You can save a Twitter search by entering the term, then clicking the three-dotted menu icon at the top-right corner of Twitter followed by “Save this search.” Simple.

But what if you want to delete your saved Twitter searches? Tastes change, after all, and maybe you’ve concluded after extensive research that you don’t want to follow what people have to say about the “flat earth society” or “gaming memes.”

Luckily for you, it’s fairly simple. All you have to do is log into your Twitter account, and click the search bar at the top-right corner.

Alternatively, you can click through on your saved search entry, then click the three-dotted menu icon at the top-right corner. Click “Remove this saved search” to delete that term from your saved searches.

  1. for what it’s worth, this is for the legacy version of Twitter .. the newest version dosn’t have a “save search” option on their website, or in the app.
