All tweets must die

I just published my first gem on github, all_tweets_must_die. It will become the core of a web app that regularly deletes your old tweets automatically. If you want to use twitter but value your privacy, this thing is for you.

I build the whole thing for fun and exercise. I’ll try to use as much new stuff as possible – Sinatra for the web app, Cucumber for testing it, CouchDB for storing user auth and preferences, and – if I actually get a couple of users on the site – possibly a small Erlang or Scala program for tweet deletion, connected to Ruby with Thrift. Lot’s of cool new technology, a lot of buzz. I know :-)
