Delete location data from old tweets on Twitter


Location feature on Twitter allows you to add and display your current geographical location information along with your tweet messages. By default, location feature is disabled for all Twitter accounts. However, if you have enabled this feature for your account – then you can show your followers the location you are tweeting from as part of the tweet. Over period of time, if you decide to remove location data from all your previous tweet – you can do this easily with a single click.
