Mass Delete Tweets (free & no 3rd-party apps)

In this post I want to explain how you can mass-delete old tweets without the need to use a 3rd-party service that probably also want your money or scripts that require you to create an application on the Twitter developer portal. You will just make use of Firefox, Tweetdeck, some shell scripts and two command line tools. To follow this tutorial you need the following prerequisites: An account at Twitter with tweets you want to delete (otherwise this tutorial is totally useless for you) Firefox Basic knowledge of how to use a terminal curl, jq and bash installed on your system (I will use a standard Linux distribution with a zsh-shell, so if you are using Windows or Mac, or another shell, commands can slightly differ) Disclaimer I’m not responsible for any damage caused by you following this tutorial!

Did you ditch Chrome yet? Don't switch to Brave though.

There is some discussion recently about another evil move by Google. Google plans to deprecate (and remove) an API in it’s webbrowser Chrome, that is used by many ad-blocking addons. Of course they are ignoring voices from the community! Only enterprise customers will be able to use this API for custom development. Is it a surprise at all, that Google wants to do that? Google (Alphabet) is one of the biggest (ad) companies.

Remote work, why not remote conferences too?

Climate change is reaching the media more and more, every day we hear more stories about the bad things caused by climate change and also the youth protests “Fridays for Future” are very popular (at least here in Germany and Europe). That is one side to it. On the other hand, I read on Twitter almost every day about conferences and developers all over the world who fly there just to listen to some presentations or give some themselves.
