“Twitter reversed course last week and allowed the tool that archives politicians’ deleted tweets to come back online.”
To delete or undelete, thats the question. I think we all forget that once we click the button on anything that “lives” outside our computer (and even sometimes on it), deleting it only removes it from our view of the app or site displaying it (like Twitter). So bringing it back is always an option. In other words, YOU DON’T CONTROL IT.
In the case of Politwoops, the politicians in question are obviously more interested in their reputations and control over negative information than they are in truth or freedom.
Sad but true.
