delet­ing twit­ter like a nerd


for a long time I’ve want­ed to move on to the indieweb/​fediverse world from twit­ter and co. I fig­ured delet­ing my tweets would be a great way­point for my tran­si­tion. Twitter did­n’t pro­vide any tools for batch dele­tion, and all the online twit­ter dele­tion ser­vices only allowed a lim­it­ed num­ber of dele­tions on their free tier. So I decid­ed to do some good old snoop­ing and try to do it myself. It turned out to be much eas­i­er than I’d anticipated.
