How Can I Clean The API Response (JSON) From HTML Tags and Twitter Stuff

Forums > Swift

Hello guys, I'm trying to parse a JSON but in one of the responses it returns to me a string with a lot of HTML tags, twitter posts and more stuff inside like the one example down so my question is how can I clear all this html tags and stuff have the clean string so I can show it on the UI or is there a way that I can show that tweet same way on my app ?

This is how it returns to me
