launched yesterday to help you delete all of your social accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Instagram, Reddit, Pinterest, Gmail, LinkedIn, Snapchat, and more. Warning: click delete, and all of your data and dog pictures will be gone forever.

lets you quickly delete old photos by swiping left and right (just like on Tinder!), and this Message Deleter for Slack
will clear through your old work messages. Please ask your boss before you run the app. 🙏
