    Will deleting cydia sources delete the tweaks/apps you downloaded and installed from these sources?

    No the tweaks will not be deleted...it's safe to delete sources.

    However, if I am not mistaken, AFAIK, removing the sources removes the ability for you to get any updates on those tweaks. Cause Cydia has no where to go to check...

    Exactly. Cydia doesn't have a release to download and then check for updates. So, I wouldn't recommend deleting sources.
    Why would you want to delete a source?
