What I hate about social media sites that all the data is kept, but I can't find anything I need. But the admins, or new owners can always comb through the data (cf. last share). Given that I can't find shit, I'd be better off if old data got deleted. Delete inactive accounts after 90 days. Delete Toots after 90 days. Delete media after 30 days. Data is a liability. Make it easy for people to export threads (share a thread as HTML mail attachment, or save as HTML page for example).
@kensanata Partly agree. The downloadable Twitter archive is quite neat, actually:
You basically get an entire website containing all your old tweets and retweets, ordered by month. It can be stored locally and includes decent search functionality. I use it quite often to search my > 10000 (!) old tweets.
I would love a similar feature here on Mastodon.
