I have written a script that analyzes the friends/followers of a given Twitter account (once OAuth’d). It then looks at tweets and other activity from those followers. Using a machine learning algorithm, this script detects users who are likely to be spam accounts, fake accounts, or otherwise abusive accounts (stalkers, rude comments, etc). I think this could be useful not only for our own account, but other accounts too.
Once I have a list of all user_ids belonging to these “junk” followers, obviously I want to unfollow them all, which I can do via POST friendships/destroy. However- I am NOT ALLOWED to automate this. And I do NOT want to break your rules.
My question is this:
How do I enable some “unfollow” feature into my script without breaking any rules? Does it require me to create a UI where I manually click to unfollow them all? All I want is some user-friendly way to get rid of these junky relationships. What can I do?
Thanks in advance.
