πŸ‘‹ Twitter

To paraphrase this article, it’s far less likely that future society will be reading my tweets to gain insight into who I was than it is that some asshole will trawl through my Twitter feed to find some tweet where I sounded like a jerk. So I’ve deleted about 63,000 tweets, leaving only the last 12 months, and every month I’ll delete another 30 days worth.

I’m not leaving Twitter just yet, but it won’t be such a big deal anymore if I have to.

Liberating.

edit: I left.

edit2: And then Alex Jones was asked to leave, and I went back.
