Delete Your Old Tweets

“You have changed and grown over the years, and it’s about time your Twitter does, too.”

Abu Zafar, from Lifehacker, offers this salient observation, and I agree. Twitter was designed to voice the spontaneous reactions and reflections of a time; much like the spontaneous sound of a bird ‘tweeting’. Can you imagine that senior sparrow pulling up a branch to reflect on the sounds it made as a hatchling? Of course not.

Technology offers some options to batch delete your older tweets. Here’s two:

  •  TweetDelete,  has a free basic version and a pay version with advanced features.
  • Jumbo, a mobile solution available on iOS and Google Play, can delete content from Twitter as well as other social networks like Facebook and Google.

Google Adds ‘De-noiser’ to Meets

Keyboard tapping, fan blades humming, dogs barking; all things we’ve had to contend with in our virtual-meeting rooms. Google’s Noise Cancellation, rolling out to Meets today, fixes that. Though it can’t improve the clarity of the speaker’s content, it’s cloud-based audio-scrubbing algorithms should improve the clarity of the sound.

Listen to this clip to hear it for your self.

Set Your Google Map’s Location History to Auto-Delete

Sure, being able to look back along your timeline to recall something (like the name of that Sardinian cafe by the water) has its conveniences. But who among us isn’t concerned about the long-term use of our private data?

Well, following a recent update, Google Maps users can have their timelines automatically expire.
