Why I just deleted my ten-year Twitter history

I just used a service called Cardigan to delete the 10k+ tweets I’ve published since 2007, when I first joined Twitter. I don’t know about you, but I’ve changed a lot since I was 24 years old. It didn’t make sense to me to keep ten years worth of miscellany–silly jokes, uninformed hot takes, occasional sharp insights, and so on–up on the Internet, gathering dust, making advertising money for Twitter. I don’t want to support a company that even with a $10.
