You’ve seen that person with 52,000 tweets right? How about that new follower that you check out with 6k tweets? Isn’t twitter supposed to be something we use for in-the-moment events?
I always felt that twitter should be a fleeting service. Something you post and then it goes eventually. I had a few thousand tweets at one point in 2012. Sometimes they would come up out of context and I would have figure out why I said that and then answer with another cryptic tweet.
“Oh yeah, that was a sarcastic response to so-and-so…”I decided a while back that I WOULD like to have my tweet archive and that I WOULD like to get some information from that usage. I DO NOT want every little tweet living forever. Who cares about my step count? Playing with IFTTT? Et cetera.
So I auto-delete my tweets. After seven days – TwitDelete.net takes care of it for me. All my tweets are still saved using Thinkup.
Setup TweteDelete.net at your own interval
I chose a seven day interval – pick what works for you.
Get insights at thinkup.com and maintain control of your own archive.
This is what my thinkup looks like:
I had tried a couple of other services before. TwitWipe had worked a couple of times for me but it wasn’t consistent. It’s possible that the first few thousand tweets just took a long time to delete and might have been crashing the service.
I would love to see auto-delete or auto-archive as part of Twitter or even as part of Thinkup.
If that wet’s your appetite then you will need to watch this documentary about a single day of shooting for GoT.
I’m currently reading this. Just a few chapters in and I can already recommend it to my fellow fans.
