Making tweets ephemeral

I’m now running a job that will, once it gets through the backlog, delete all of my tweets which are ten days or older, and remove likes from older tweets.

I’m using my own fork of a node project to handle the clean-up.

I’m not using this to be unaccountable for what I write. It’s to make me make my non-ephemeral posts somewhere other than Twitter.
