Twitter Likes Deleter (Alpha)

TLDR; What is this?

A Glitch app that walks you through deleting your Twitter Likes without having to give access to a 3rd party service. It should take about 15-20 minutes, but requires very little technical knowledge and I promise there are good instructions. If you need help, give me a holler on Twitter @melissamcewen.

Why use this app? Why not others?

Here are the advantages Ryan laid out for this app over other similar ones:

I created this app to address a few issues I had with other Tweet delete services. Here are the benefits:

It's free

First off: I'm all in favor of people paying for software. Development is work and people deserve to be compensated for it. That said, given the increasing risk of real-world consequences from Twitter mobs, I believe this is a service people should have access to free of charge.

It's open source and you run it yourself

For an app to delete your tweets, it needs access to your Twitter account. I wasn't comfortable giving that kind of access to whatever apps happened to come up first on Google. The way this app works, you create your own API credentials and run the code yourself. Since it's open source you can see exactly what it's doing. Because Glitch is so great, that is all much easier than it sounds.

Also:

It deletes ALL your likes

Because of limitations to Twitter's API, unless an app lets you upload your own data the most it can do it delete your last 3,200 likes. They also typically can't delete very old likes.
