Keep or Delete Review: Tinder-like Swiping for Tweets

With March’s arrival, I’ve started my digital spring cleaning a little early this year with Keep Or Delete, a Tinder-like way to sift through your tweets.

Setting up Keep or Delete is as simple as connecting your Twitter account, which will load your last 3,200 tweets and present them to you in a card format. To keep a tweet, swipe right; to delete it, swipe left. Along the bottom of the screen are buttons that perform the same actions, although I find that swiping is both quicker and more fun. Deletions are logged, which makes it easy to track the progress you’ve made cleaning up your timeline.

As you might imagine, it’s easy to accidentally delete tweets if you’re moving fast. Keep or Delete addresses that with a “revert” option that will undo the most recent change you made.

Due to Twitter API limitations, apps can only access your most recent 3,200 tweets for viewing and deletion. However, Keep or Delete includes the option to import your entire Twitter archive for editing, which it explains when selecting the option. Between this and the ability to have multiple accounts, Keep or Delete will keep you busy swiping away.

Although I’ve been enjoying the app, I do have one major gripe: my tweets start from most recent and go back in time. Instead, I’d like the option to sort from oldest to newest, since I’m more likely to want to get rid of tweets that I wrote long ago.

Other than that, Keep or Delete is a great tool for ridding your profile of tweetstorms, retweets, and typos. From heavy Twitter users to profile micromanagers, Keep or Delete’s functionality is useful for making quick changes.

You can pick up Keep or Delete for $0.99 in the App Store for iPhone here.
