I held my breath and pushed the button. “Delete All,” it read. Yes, I clicked, do it. “Are You Sure?” it asked. I wasn’t. But I’d made a decision, about which I’d written an entire article already, and I wasn’t about to renege. The tweets started disappearing in batches. I refreshed my timeline every few minutes to find myself back in time, tweets from 2016 at the top of my feed, as though suddenly it was just after election day again and I was… unhinged. Refresh. Now I went back further, 2015, tweets about my newborn son. Oh god, I seem happy! Refresh. 2014, tweets about… shoes and the weather? Was I really ever so naive? When I was a sophomore in college a thousand years ago, I wrote poems in sharpie all over the walls of my dorm room. Tiny haikus in the corner by the radiator, huge sonnets above my bed. I stood on tiptoes and wrote words on the ceiling. The room looked like the set of the movie A Beautiful Mind, and though … [Read more...] about The Sadness of Deleting Your Old Tweets

Snapchat is confusing. Right?We’ll agree it seems that way. It basically updates every couple weeks, at the very least, adding new features or changing core functions. And, at the end of the day, the whole concept behind Snapchat is, well, odd. After all, it was initially about sending photos or videos, which only played once, to friends, for a few seconds, and then they’d disappeared for good. What’s the point of that? What if you want to send a photo or video to someone for them to keep forever, just like you always could with every social network or messenger before Snapchat?Stop right there. Forget all that.

SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4888; Member since: 15 Apr 2011) With all due respect President Obama we need you to worry about the hellish gas prices that are raping all Americans, & this economic funk we are in. Cooler cell phones because you are President is really not in the best interest of the American people. Why can't you get a cool cell phone like every other American does? All you need is to go to your local wireless store! "I'm like, c'mon guys, I'm the president of the United States. Where's the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up?" I think we are in trouble! It looks like one term President a la Jimmy Carter. posted on 18 Apr 2011, 10:23 4 2. Uhhhhh-huhh (unregistered) Yeahhh, lets keep the comments to the Phone side of things.
