Now You Can Track Your Friends (Or Enemies) Deleted Tweets With Undetweetable
One of the funniest (and at times most worrying) things that can happen on Twitter is when you delete a tweet that you didn’t mean to send only for people to find it in search some time later. I’ve lost count on the amount of times I have seen this happen to somebody usually to great embarrassment or ridicule and it has to be said that is a major weak point for Twitter. Once you have deleted something on Twitter it is not actually deleted in any way at all. Smart bloggers and journalists will often screen grab a deleted tweet from finding it in search results but a new tool called undeltweetable is looking to take that a step further. Essentially what the service does is create an index of deleted tweets and allow you to browse through them. You can add anybody to the database by adding their username (it won’t look back retrospectively though) and forever more that person will have their deleted tweets tracked by the system.
Service Might Not Be Around For Long
If you feel like using this site you might want to move pretty quickly because there is already talk of the site being taken down. Twitter have apparently sent a cease and desist letter because the site breaks their terms and conditions and you could see why they would be keen to do that. The fact that you have never been able to properly delete tweets is a flaw in their service and this site has managed to highlight that in a fairly simple way. So if you don’t want people finding your drunken or dodgy tweets then you best protect your tweets or just not send anything bad because all sorts of people could be watching!
