    Is there anything out there that will mass delete direct messages sent to you at twitter?
    Also, does it matter if you delete them or not?

    Regards

    hey dvdvids,
    socialoomph[dot]com offers the possibility to delete all DM´s. (Direct Messages --> Purge DM Inbox). I would have reccommended you another site, but as far as I know this is the only site that deletes DM´s.

    I think I deleted 150 at one time, and wasn´t banned or so, but honestly I don´t even delete my DM´s anymore... waste of time ;-) especially when you have several accounts.

    My guess would be he spams DM's to others and wants to delete all the replies at once. :)

    The only reason I want to delete them is because maybe when they reach a certain ammount something could happen to the account, maybe?

    If you read them at all, it gets to be tough once they pile up in the 100s. But I've also seen speculation that it's a red flag on accounts when they just pile up.

    Sign up for free account with SocialOomph, register you Twitter account with them and select to Purge DM's.
    They provide several options of whether you want to purge all DM's or DM's over 7 days old or DM's over 30 days old (something like that).
