Thank you so much! Do you happen to have a script to remove all followers?

Also looking for modified script to "remove all followers" because the menu hid under "..." menu

Worked for about 22K of the 40K followings I was trying to remove in one go, but then started to think it was all done and needed to be restarted a few times on a refreshed page. Still better than any others I've tried.

@benedlore glad it mostly worked out, 40K is a lot.

It’s not that it stopped working, twitter usually puts ur acc on cooldown if you perform and action like following/unfollowing/like/unlike.. etc excessively. Just let the account rest a while, refresh the “following” page and paste the code again, then resume the unfollowing. Same thing goes with the unliking script ..

Works as of December 2022, it would be amazing if you could make one that would mass delete tweets and dislike liked tweets
