What's the use case of a scraped data, huh.

It's for spam! Yeah, you can spam or you can play with it like me. While I'm trying to shape the 3rd release of Connect, I wanted to optimize the list by removing inactive users, I've sorted it by status count changes and this happened.

SimonRobic deleted his 14150 tweets in the past 30 days. Interesting, what's more interesting is lies in one of those bios.

mr_chenliang -2569 💻 tech | 🍺 beer | 🏀 ball | ☕️ coffee | ✈️ travel tweets are deleted every year

mr_chenliang deletes his tweets every year. Hmm why? after a quick google search I saw people deleting their old tweets due to privacy concerns. Makes sense, but why would you care.

I don't know, I didn't take it further to look all these accounts history to see a similar pattern if they are keep deleting their older tweets, if they would pay for an automated service. It's on you to research if you are still looking for your next project.

I did a quick google search that provides this service, there are some services out there even there is an open source alternative. However all stuck at some point, Twiter API only allows to fetch latest 3200 tweets. Well, this is the problem you need to solve. All the other services I check doesn't provide option for more. I know it's possible to grab more than 3200. So do your own research and start on your next project.

Google Search: automated tweet deletion
first result from theverge

TweetDeleter costs $5.99 a month and lets you delete up to 3,000 tweets per day, on top of letting you auto-delete tweets of a certain age. The service also has an unlimited option for $8.99 a month that lets you wipe your entire history clean at once and also lets you upload your archive.

edit: https://delete.tweets.tools/ this guy seems like he figured it out, and prices kinda bumped up.

You don't need to pay me $19/month for a SaaS ideas, but feel free to buy me a coffee.
