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 https://github.com/JakeWharton/singular-solution if you want to do the same, although admittedly its first production test will be tomorrow 🤞
@Pineywoozle Yeah I know, but I don't want to break embeds or regular links by locking. Also would break favorites and unsure what it does to retweets.
This server is a place for Jake Wharton. Are you Jake Wharton? This is your place. Are you not Jake Wharton? Well, at least you can find him here.
@jw Understood. Although at the rate he’s going it’s all gonna be broken soon anyway. I personally want as little useful stuff left there as possible, so it keeps nudging people to leave. I had my tweets & followers sent to me and when I’m done trying to drag people out of the dumpster fire I’m fine if I just leave a husk.
