You may have heard of JS Fatigue. I am currently in a Twitter Fatigue mood.
I use each social network differently:
- G+ was for my mum (Hi!)
- Facebook for buddies and following some musicians or groups.
- Twitter for tech, where I spend a loooot of time.
And I got too many people, and too many tweets…
It was too much.
Also, freaking ads. Each eighth tweet is a sponsored one. Damn.
I also want to clear my timeline from inactive people that I don’t care about.
So, I wrote twitter-cleaner (on gitlab or github thanks to gitzytout).
twitter-cleaner is made in golang and uses the following dependencies:
- https://github.com/ChimeraCoder/anaconda to interact with twitter
- https://github.com/Sirupsen/logrus for logs, because it is awesome !
I was following ~1120 accounts and I am back at 709… And it won’t stop here, I need to cleanup active people now, but that is another story :)
Also, I want to check links in my old tweets and remove the ones with links that doesn’t work anymore.
