From ADTAC Disinformation Inventory

Operations are not always trying to ensure that their content is preserved and visible to the greatest number of people possible. Sometimes operations will remove assets to make themselves harder to trace or in order to avoid larger scrutiny.

Ex. Endless mayfly demonstrated that for high quality fake information it can be better to remove the content after exposure both to make the disinformation campaign harder to track and to eliminate the possible scrutiny that a false story might endure upon closer scrutiny.[1]
