Some of your Tweets can be time sensitive; for instance you are holding a contest or survey that expires after 24 hours after three days or something like that. You start the contest or the sweepstake and then post the update immediately on Twitter. But then, after the closing time, you forget to delete the Tweet and people still keep on responding to it, especially those who might be checking their timelines late getting confused because of different time zones.
You can sign up with Spirit that claims to make your Tweets “disappear with a simple hash tag”.
So for instance, you post an update

Conventionally, the update stays where even when the said 12 hours have elapsed. On the other hand if you have signed up with Spirit and granted the application read and write permissions and if you post your update in the following manner:
This promotional code is available for the next 12 hours. #12h
It will be automatically deleted after 12 hours. Similarly, if you want something to be deleted in the next 35 minutes, you can do it like this:
This should be deleted in the next 35 minutes #35m
