With Twitter's web UI, it is very hard to see all my Twitter posts / tweets, especially the oldest ones. I have to manually scroll down until the bottom and wait for Twitter to load the next set of tweets. If I want to reach my oldest tweet, this could take forever.

Is there a way to easily select a group of tweets including the oldest ones, and then delete them? I would like to be able to select which of my tweets will be deleted, and not mass delete all of them, if possible.

I think this question aims to be a bit more selective than just bulk erasing all of them. – John C Mar 8 '13 at 22:36
@AlEverett John C's comment above is true. I stated in my question that "I would like to be able to select which of my tweets will be deleted, and not mass delete all of them, if possible." The question you suggested that this one was a duplicate of, asks how to mass delete all of a user's tweets. – galacticninja Mar 9 '13 at 4:04
That's why it says "possible duplicate". – Al E. Mar 9 '13 at 15:21
@AlEverett I know what that means. I have to reply to that comment, since it means that you initiated a close vote. And others with enough rep might agree with you and vote to close my question too. – galacticninja Mar 9 '13 at 15:31
I understand. Unfortunately I can't rescind a close vote. I agree that it's not a duplicate. – Al E. Mar 9 '13 at 15:34

Not exactly selective but, TweetDelete has a nifty feature of allowing you to delete tweets older that a specified age. This makes it easier to get rid of the older tweets that might take a long time to scroll through and manually delete with Twitter's web UI.

I can comment on why I upvoted. It's a good answer for a otherwise unanswered question. – cregox Feb 22 '14 at 6:44

Twitter's API allows you to fetch only the last 3,200 of your tweets. If you want to mass delete all your tweets, use TwitWipe.

probably tweeteraser.com - but I haven't checked it out – Sathya Oct 9 '12 at 11:28
