A few days ago, I ran an experiment: a tweet that deletes itself. Every like the tweet gets, its lifetime increases by 60 seconds.
It survived for 20 hours 6 minutes 7 seconds. The graph below shows the amount time remaining chart since it’s created until its final breath.
Click the tweet below to see the deleted tweet + its follow-up updates.
In its entire lifetime, the tweet got:
- 99.6k impressions
- 393 profile clicks
- 1,041 likes
- 66 replies (with encouraging words when it’s about to die ❤️)
See its full public analytics and the archive of all replies here (under the Tweet Analytics tab):
This experiment is interesting. Yep, that’s it.
