@colinwalker I've been giving this some thought today, and all I can say is that I don't see me using it much. I'm not a big fan of Twitter to begin with, so self-destructing tweets isn't really going to make me use it more.

There's an article on Fast Company though that highlights the way in which politicians could use it further ensure that they can't be held accountable for what they post.

Another weapon of disinformation? It could well be.

@matthewlang There's not much point politicians using it as the "story" can only be seen by your followers and, let's face, people will always screenshot anything remotely contentious so there's no escaping.

@matthewlang Ah, I see the point, they could say things direct to follow4s that aren't visible in the main feed and then disappear. You'll just get activist groups following them all and watching.

@colinwalker Precisely. The word propaganda springs to mind.
