Shower thought: I have nuking all my tweets older than three months now.

What if this was built into Mastodon?

Possible enhancements:
πŸ‘‰πŸΎ let the user have toots get set to listener-only/direct instead of deleted
πŸ‘‰πŸΎ maybe an option to mail some kind of archive to the user before they're deleted (make sure this mail doesn't get cached on the instance's side, as an admin I do not want to have to keep track of any more of your private info than I absolutely must)

@anthracite I highly recommend reaching out to @clar and @Satsuma to see if it can be included in the fork they are working on ( @forktogether). We had some trouble being heard by the developer of Mastodon so a big group started to fork. There'll still be interoperability, but different governance.

I'm the meanwhile think @codl made a service to delete toots.

@anthracite I've actually been toying with how to implement a toot expiration feature with more granular options than just "delete anything older than X days". Things like, "don't delete toots with media attached", or "only delete locked toots", etc.

@anthracite Switching toots to locked from public after a certain period of time would be difficult, as it would require re-federating...

@InspectorCaracal yeah, I figure it’s only trivial to implement if the toot edit thing can do that. I really need to get around to upgrading here so I know how that one works offhand.

@anthracite From my understanding, it's less "edit", more "delete and repost with the same toot IDs"
