In 2018, Disney employee James Gunn was fired due to tweets he wrote back in 2008. Although eventually rehired, Gunn is one of the many individuals whose past tweets have come back to haunt them.
Due to this, Twitter has announced its plans to test a feature that allows Twitter users to archive their past tweets manually. The tool will let users archive their tweets after a predetermined time has passed since posting. This will let users delete old tweets from their juvenile-behaving years.
This new initiative will let Twitter users take control of their 'social privacy' and online identity. Twitter will also test a new feature where users can remove undesired followers. By the end of the year, the social media platform will have tested numerous other initiatives, all in the name of restoring its user's privacy.
