In ~24 hours my Twitter account is going to stop following all accounts, will force-remove all of its followers, and keep a tool running to remove any new ones.

This will keep existing tweets up to preserve external links and allow other's retweets and favorites to remain. But mine will have a nice clean 0 for followers and following.

The tool I slapped together in an hour is at if you want to do the same, although admittedly its first production test will be tomorrow 🤞

@jw did it hit any snag? I checked about an hour ago and again now and numbers are not changing.


@ronaldopace I went to bed. It hit a 404 trying to block some used that was being returned from the following list and got stuck. Added logic this morning to handle the case and it's back off and running!
