Will you please add a simple way to select multiple snapshots and delete them at once? Even with just 8 or 9 it’s annoying to clean them up. I also assume this does not affect the price for backups?

Updated 8/16/16: I wanted to give a quick update with the latest about snapshot charges. Starting October 1, 2016, we will begin charging for snapshot storage at $0.05 per gigabyte per month. The bill uses the size of compressed snapshot, not the total disk space allocated to the Droplet. So just like our other features, you only pay for what you use.
