Twitter Obliterate

I had a request for a script to delete all the tweets in an account, so here it is:


May be harmful to your tweets, use at your own risk! I’m not sure how fast it is, since I’ve only tested it on an account with about 10 tweets. It has to send a separate HTTP request for each tweet, and it does so serially. Hopefully it’ll be adequate for all but the most massive accounts.

The tarball includes a version of the python-twyt library, modified to add support for the archive command. Patch on the way to the maintainer shortly…

Update: I’ve done a few tests and it appears the code has some bugs, but due to lack of demand I haven’t investigated any further. Let me know if you’re interested in a fix!
