I'm new to this site, but can you explain to me how to use this code to delete all my tweets? I've authorized several apps but for some reason my account won't allow those apps to do their job (deleting my tweets)... i want to know how to use this code 'cause it seems like it could be my only option at this point... i know how to open up the "developer console" and the "inspect element" on the google chrome site. but when i try to copy this code and paste it, it says "UNCAUGHT REFERENCE ERROR:....". please let me know asap! thank you:)

This script works, but you have to do it a few times because Twitter probably has implemented some sort of limit. Not sure if there would be a way to space out the script so that it's not performing the actions so rapidly.

Twitter server for me. 403 response code per https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/basics/response-codes

403 Forbidden The request is understood, but it has been refused or access is not allowed. An accompanying error message will explain why. This code is used when requests are being denied due to update limits . Other reasons for this status being returned are listed alongside the error codes in the table below.

This doesn't work anymore, I made a new one that works with the current more involved REACT UI:

// Un retweet

function sleep(ms) {
return new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, ms));
}
for(var i = 1; i < 500; i++){
document.querySelectorAll('[data-testid="unretweet"]')[0].click()
await sleep(1000)
document.querySelectorAll('[data-testid="unretweetConfirm"]')[0].click()
await sleep(1000)
}
