Stupid twitter doesn't give me an option to see my old tweets. I've purged like 3k , but still 9k to go, and I can't either access them to see them or delete them with any tool.

Anybody knows how could I accomplish that?

@ivan there are a number of scripts like the one below that can delete tweets.

@kev Tried like 20 different ones, none of them work unfortunately 😕 Once I get to this magical number of 8875 total tweets, I can't get it under that. Nothing sees those older tweets

@ivan ah, that’s crap. What about a 3rd party app?

@kev Seems like there is a way to extract status id's from profile archive (request archive in twitter settings) and then going through each id and deleting tweet with tweepy library. Currently trying out github.com/koenrh/delete-tweet so I'll see how it goes...

@ivan I have a script, tool to do it. You need to download your archive and then use a script to manually delete each tweet based on the tweet ID from your dump. It's stupid painful but it works

@feld Could you share it? I've tried few of those. Tried even doing something on my own but did not manage to get it right. Currently trying out github.com/koenrh/delete-tweet , we'll see how that goes 🙂
