The "This Tweet Has Been Deleted" Rule is an internet rule and axiom that states seeing the message "This tweet has been deleted" at the bottom of a screenshotted tweet (which appears when a Twitter user deletes their post) makes the preceding tweet exponentially funnier. After the rule was posited by a Twitter user in March 2023, users on the app began sharing examples of "this tweet has been deleted" images and found that in most cases, the axiom was true.


On March 7th, 2023, Twitter user @nizedatpussy[1] posted, "'This tweet has been deleted' makes shit 10x more funny," gaining over 6,300 retweets, 3,300 quote-tweets and 45,000 likes in one week (shown below).

Twitter feed loads a bunch of tweets at once. If a tweet is deleted after being loaded onto your feed, you can still view it, but it'll tell you it was deleted. If you exit and reopen Twitter, your feed will be refreshed and that tweet will be gone, but you can screenshot it to preserve it.
