Keep track of Twitter "unfollowers"
#!/bin/sh
# track unfollows on twitter using "t" https://github.com/sferik/t
# usage:
#
# to check if any of your followers has stopped following you since the last
# time the script wall called, use:
# $ this_script followers
#
# to check if YOU stopped following someone (it appears many of us witnessed
# this behaviour in twitter), use:
# $ this_script followings
#
# replace the following email address with your own
rcpt="your@email.net"
if [ $# -lt 1 ]; then
echo "$0 <followers|followings>"
exit 1
