My twitter account got hacked. I needed a way to bulk unfollow the 700 accounts I was now following. I installed the command line twitter client
twidge and used a little shell-fu to unfollow 20 accounts at a time
twidge lsfollowing | xargs -L 1 twidge unfollow
I then looped it automatically with the
watch command, resulting in
watch -n 10 "twidge lsfollowing | xargs -L 1 twidge unfollow"
This unfollowed the newest accounts first, so I was able to catch it before it unfollowed the accounts I really care about.
