Your quick reply:
- To see the deleted Twitter account or its Tweets, first, if you have the link to the tweet, search for it on Google.
- If you see any search results on this, just open the page from cached mode where the tweet page will be displayed.
- Also, if you don’t have the tweet link, you can search for the profile link on Google. Viewing the profile from cached sharing mode can also show recent tweets posted by the person, and if something gets deleted in real time, it will show the cached data that deleted the tweets there.
In case you need to see the tweets, there are some roundabout ways and this is only possible if a server grabs the cache of those tweets.
Normally, if you search all your tweets, probably 10% of them are in the Google cache and this percentage depends on the popularity or priority of the Twitter account to store.
You can view deleted tweets or account by viewing some most recent tweets about it using Cache.
This article will show you the best caching options that you can use to view deleted Twitter data, mainly tweets or accounts and their images.

How to view deleted tweets or Twitter accounts:
If you want to see deleted tweets or accounts, you have to do it using any caching server like Google or Wayback machine that keep link cache, where Google keeps it for a limited time or sometimes for a few weeks.
There are several ways to view deleted accounts that are removed from Twitter.
1. Google Cache to view deleted tweets:
Keep in mind that every time you post something on Twitter, whether it’s a tweet or just a photo or video, the app’s system automatically generates its URL. Not just through the app, if you perform the same function through your browser, your post will have a unique system-generated URL.
This allowed users to restore and view deleted Twitter tweets. Here are some steps that will make your job easier, let’s check it with Google cache.
To see tweets deleted from your device,
🔴 Steps to follow:
Step 1: Open Google on your device. Once the Google page is open, search for your Twitter page link from the Google search bar.
Step 2: The next thing you need to do is when the search results appear, tap the down arrow symbol next to the URL of your Twitter account as ‘cached‘.
Step 3: Then touch it’cached‘option. The moment you do, you can see your previous cached version of that tweet via the Google Webcache link.
One important thing to note is that the method can only work if the cached data has not been cleared/deleted by Google. If Google has cleared your cached data, it will be nearly impossible for you to view your deleted tweets or posts using Google cache.
Now you know that the URL provided by Twitter is an important way through which you can see your deleted tweets even if they are deleted.
2. Wayback Machine – Deleted Twitter Accounts:
The Wayback Machine is a tool that allows the Internet to store all data through the World Wide Web. It provides universal access to all forms of pages on the web.
And aside from that, you can retrieve your oldest data that you tweeted long time ago from your Twitter account.
The sole purpose of the Wayback Machine is to collect as much web data as possible that may have been lost or deleted when the website changes or is closed.
The Wayback Machine has allowed users to download and access web pages from around the world as well as other resources such as Twitter to retrieve and view deleted tweets and posts. If you don’t have access to the archive of the Twitter account from which the deleted tweet was sent, the Wayback Machine will be to your rescue.
While it doesn’t archive every tweet or page on Twitter, it does have screenshots of some or more pages. Here are the steps through which you can get back your old deleted tweets using the Wayback Machine.
To view deleted Twitter data,
🔴 Steps to follow:
Step 1: First of all, go to the online return machine.
Step 2: Once inside, in the URL bar, type the full URL of the tweet you want to retrieve and hit the ‘navigate historybutton ‘.
Step 3: Now choose the date you want to see the data for that URL from and you can see the full screenshot taken by the Wayback Machine of that Twitter page which is organized like a calendar.
You will be shown the screenshot of the tweet that is exactly the same as the tweet you previously tweeted.
Note: If the Wayback Machine has the data in its cache, only you can choose a date; otherwise it can’t show you the data. If so, you can look up the profile page URL on the Wayback machine and pick a date to see if there are any tweets on the profile page.
3. Screenshots of deleted Tweets:
The other way to see deleted tweets is through screenshots or images.
Some people actively take screenshots of tweets and save them for later, if you are among them then this habit can save you.
You can easily see deleted tweets if luckily your friend took a screenshot of that tweet. Having screenshots is simply based on factors as you don’t need to take a screenshot of the tweet.
Some users have a habit of taking screenshots of tweets from celebrities and personalities, politicians and actors, and sometimes even those that might have been controversial and provocative. Users upload these screenshots to various places that appear in Google image search results.
- You can visit Google and search for these tweets in the form of images from a Google image search.
- If it was based on a trending topic, someone may have taken a screenshot.
The same screenshot of that deleted tweet can be found in the comments or tweets of others.

This article explains the different methods of using cache options and the available options you can use to view those deleted tweets. There you can use the Wayback machine or, at best, you can see Google’s cached version of that page.
