Zombie Tweets Found in Search, Twitter App

Remember that Tweet you thought you deleted? It never really died. It lives on in the Twitter search - and at a Twitter app called Tweleted.

Jonathan Ross found this out the hard way when he posted his email address on Twitter. Ross has a quarter million followers and decided that perhaps posting the email address wasn't a good idea after all. But it was too late.

Apparently, it's always too late. The good news is that if you accidentally delete a tweet, Tweleted will help you find it.

I decided to test this out for myself. Sure, enough, I deleted my test tweet, searched for it and found it using both Twitter search and Tweleted:

Do you think Twitter should permanently erase deleted Tweets? Share your thoughts in the comments.
