Why should I automatically delete tweets?

n this day and age, why would anyone keep their old tweets on the internet? Anyone crawling through your old tweets is likely doing that to find something incriminating. Be it an employer, a journalist, or someone else - they're looking for a skeleton in your closet. If you auto delete tweets, then they won't find any. 

Countless celebrity scandals have ensued because of old, forgotten tweets that have resurfaced at the wrong time. Plus, with the current trend of employers vetting applicants by digging through their social media, there have been many cases where a dream job opportunity was lost, because of some old tweet that goes against the employer's views. 

But, please, tweet! Let others know your views. Just make sure those tweets don't come back to haunt you - auto delete old tweets from your timeline.

How does automatic tweet delete work?

You can set up and activate the automatic tweet delete feature with TweetDeleter right here. It will start deleting your old tweets the moment you activate it. In regards to the configuration - you have several choices so pick one that suits you best. You can configure automatic tweet deletion by tweet count, tweet age, or keywords.

If you decide to go by tweet count, then choose how many tweets you want to keep - 10, 100, or 1000. TweetDeleter will auto delete tweets that exceed the limit you set and do it automatically as you post new ones. You can also configure deletion by age - automatically erase tweets older than a week, a month, or a year - whatever works for you. 

Another option available to you is automatic tweet deletion by keyword. People have a habit of saying things they regret afterward, be it an intoxicated rant or a bout of rage. Don't let your mistakes come back to haunt you and set up automatic tweet deletion with the keywords you most often come to regret or just don't want to linger in the public space.

If I automatically delete tweets, can I still save them on TweetDeleter?

Of course! TweetDeleter's Save and Keep deleted tweets feature also works with automatically deleted tweets, so you always have an archive that you can revisit and review whenever you like. If you need help setting it up, check out this tutorial.
