It’s time. Delete your Twitter DMs
It’s been a bad week for Twitter.
It sounds like someone was ordered to rip some code out of Twitter, and they simply didn’t understand the complexity of Twitter’s system – the gazillions of dependencies and consequences that just making one change can have on other parts of the site. It’s a laborious process (Twitter doesn’t give you an automated way of doing it), but I’d rather delete them one-by-one than one day find that they are in the hands of a hacker or a disgruntled Twitter employee who goes rogue. If they even were still employed by the company, chances are that Twitter’s new boss wouldn’t listen to them.
