Special Features

  • BLACKLIST: accounts to not interact with
  • BANNED_TERMS: words or phrases to obscure/censor
  • DM commands (tweet, follow, unfollow, block, mention...)
  • Follower parity (periodically compares following/followers and follows/unfollows as needed)
  • Want something else? Create an issue. No promises.

TODO:

  • Support full archive (via CSV uploaded elsewhere)

DISCLAIMER:

I'm making this because I wrote a two-part tutorial for an older version of the twitter_ebooks gem and my mentions turned into a tech support hellscape for months.
Please create issues if you have trouble. 🙏 Please do not tweet at me. 🙏
