If you’ve been on Twitter a long time, like before you got a full time job as a journalist, you might want to consider deleting your old tweets.

That’s according to two journalists who did just that.

They said that given the scrutiny put on journalists these days, your old tweets could be dragged back from the past and put up against the work you’re trying to do today.

There are certainly mixed opinions on this topic, but for anyone who cringes when they think about the social media they shared and produced in college, it’s something to think about.
