twdel

Twitter history remover

Purpose

This program is made to clear the history of an account of Twitter. Twdel removes all the "statuses" of an authenticated account, as far as the API allows.

Requirements

  • perlbrew + cpanm
  • Perl >= 5.10

Howto Install

You of course must download this application, and type the following command to install requirements

$ cpanm Net::Twitter Config::Pit LWP::Protocol::https

Usage

Authentication

First you must authenticate the application by executing the following command:

$ ./authenticate

This command will ask you to open a URL necessary to allow this application to access your account. The authentication information will be stored under ~/.pit (this does not include your Twitter password).

Removal

And then you can remove your history by the following command:

$ ./twdel

This will connect to your account and removes your statuses from newer to older.
