How can I delete a lot of my tweets all at once?

I want to delete a bunch of my tweets but not all of them. Is there a way I can do that without manually deleting each one?
I don’t have anything bad on my twitter. I just have way to many tweets and want to delete the ones that don’t matter.

If you want to clean up the exterior image of your twitter, you’re going to have to go in and manually delete one at a time, unless you’re able to "select all" and then deselect the ones you want to preserve before pressing "delete". That said, You’re just deleting what you and the average joe sees when they look at your account. Forensically and for purposes of search engines and what not (when that job you apply to looks you up)… pretty much everything you put online since about 2002 and didnt take down before 2002 is going to be there for as long as the internet exists… and that my friend, could be an awfully long time! So if you don’t want to post it, dont post it! Luckilly at least nowdays MOST jobs will just look at the profile as is if they even bother, not reverse-search your posts to see forensically what youve put there (which would happen if you were getting jobs of higher security like executive positions or certain government positions).
