Some of us find it hard to believe that people would want to delete their old tweets, something that marks who they are. We don’t like changing opinions and content being removed once posted.

Change in niche/industry/job:

Many of us resort to Twitter to post industry updates or job updates while working.

To avoid unnecessary discussion, many people feel it’s best to delete all tweets related to old jobs.

Change in political ideologies:

Political tweets are definitely one of the most deleted tweets because people have fickle opinions when it comes to politics.
