Twitter ShortHandle Finder


This tool silently brute-forces Twitter for short un-used accounts (aka: Twitter Handles) so you can register or switch to it, at the end, in Twitter: The sorter, the better..


  • Add caching features
  • Custom loop-ending function so size can be modifed easily
  • Add user defined string length
  • Add proxy options though http.client
    • Add Tor option
  • Add to write to file option


This tool probably voilates Twitter's TOS, and it does not use Twitter APIs to find handles.
