Opt’ing Out of Twapper Keeper Archiving


We often get requests from users about whether they can keep their tweets from being archived at Twapper Keeper.  With a goal of allowing you, the user, to have a choice, we are beginning to roll out a way to opt out of Twapper Keeper archiving.

If you are interested in not having your tweets archived, please head over to http://twapperkeeper.com/optout.php and accept the form.  If any questions, send us an email at support@twapperkeeper.com.

(This enhancement aligns with enhancement UI-3 outlined in the post Plans for Updates to Twapper Keeper Functionality and APIs.  We will add the opt’out link to the main site shortly after we have processed our initial set of user requests.)
