  1. Favourites don't show up anymore

    Hi there,

    I had about 2,000 favourites on Twitter and found your tool to delete all of them. I actually managed to delete a lot of them as I have now 671 favourites. Yet, they don't show up in Unfavinator, like there was not any more favourites. It's been a few hours since I've tried again and no favourites in sight...

    I'm using Safari on the latest version of Mac OS X Mavericks

    Hope you guys can help.

      All, this is a bug (or unsupported) in twitter’s API. There is a point in most people’s favorites history that the API just stops returning results. Often you can see the same “missing” favorites on the actual favorite list on Twitter.com. I hope to find a resolution, but we are stuck with it for now.

    • Sort oldest favorites first

      UF shows favorites newest->oldest, I suggest a 'SORT' option to reverse this and show them oldest->newest

      • Add keyboard shortcut to unfavourite

        If you added two keyboard shortcuts to "KEEP" or "UNFAVOURITE" tweets, it would speed it up. Users could just tap fast on K or U to complete an action. If user holds finger down on U to unfavourite, they could quickly mass delete tweets

            When you view your favorites on your twitter profile do you see the tweets that are missing? Twitter does have a bug where they don’t show certain older favorites on the twitter site or via API. Those favorites will not show on your actual twitter profile either.

            If you provide your twitter name then I can look into it further.

            • Longer buffer period and twitter app permissions question

              Hi!

              I love your app! It's one of my favorite apps to use with Twitter. Thanks for all of your hard work!

              I have a suggestion to change the rate of deletion. It would be nice to have the favorites deleted every hour instead of every 5 minutes.

              I was wondering about your app's permissions. I see that it allows Read & Write. I just had an unknown post RT'ed by my account and I've become weary about all of the apps I use. I have revoked most apps that I do not use often. Why is your app allowed…

                We don’t post on your behalf. The permissions we have are the default, but we will evaluate whether they can be reduced further.

              • Select All

                Hello! This is probably one of the greatest and most useful tools ever! However its kinda time consuming for someone like me who has 30k+ favorites to just keep clicking the X button over and over. So, I suggest the Idea of a Select All button so its eaiser and a LOT LESS Time consuming! Thanks again!

                          Twitter has a rate limit and seemingly a limit to the number of favorites that can be removed at once. Try again in 24 hours. if they are still not visible then they may not be deletable vai the API. Sorry I can’t give a more deimfinitve answer this seems to be on Twitter’s end.

                          • Add a search

                            For the Unfavinator, what you have now replicates clicking the yellow star on the Twitter Favorites page (except I can't follow a link to make sure I do want to get rid of this one...). What would make this very much worth while would be a way to search, for a user or a hashtag or just words in the tweet, and see a filtered list of favorites. Then delete them, either one-by-one as now or selecting batches - or even better, Select All and then unselect the few I want to keep.

                              The twitter API does not currently allow searches, but we have added a username filter and it is now available and we will look at other options like phrase or hashtag.
