Dear Twitter- I’ll Give Back SO Much Space

twitter Dear Twitter: I have over 15,500 direct messages just sitting there. They’re there because you didn’t make it all that easy to delete more than one at a time, with a refresh/redraw every time. If you’d make an easy way to dump even a page at a time, I’d give you back SO much space. I imagine there are others like me.

Listen: I know disk is cheap, and I respect that. But we’re heading into a recession. Help a brother out, would you? Let me delete 15,500 direct messages.

    I agree with Phillip.
    Does it cost more for a disk spindle to spin while being 60% full or 1% full?

    The answer may surprise you. It’s the same damn thing!!

    Agreed… along with Favorites. I tend to use Favorites as a bookmark these days, to capture a tweet so that I can get a URL when no on my machine. Once I get to my computer, I bookmark and then delete…but often it is a few at a time or on a “hot topic” period not always done, and they stack up.

    Also what’s with the 2000 limit. Please, sometimes you find a few groups and things grow. Deleting 20 to make room for new ones is a royal pain, groups, sections all of this should be easier to do.

    I guess I fail to see the real problem here. I’ve never had to delete a single DM. Granted, I only have a couple of hundred, but I don’t need to delete any. They’re just “there,” and to me that’s the nature of the modern Internet: not needing to delete anything.

    I agree with those who have complained about the ever-vanishing trash can; I would like to see it around all of the time for those instances of typos or accidentally hitting enter instead of the space bar.

    For those of you they may have tried to use my DM Deleter (http://dcortesi.com/tools/dm_deleter/), I just updated it today to make it compatible with some changes Twitter recently made.

    It’s a brute-force way of doing it, but it does allow you to clear out your DM’s at the expense of Twitter’s databases…
