Unfavorite

With Twitter favorite-gate in full stride this week, a number of users have been looking for a way to reset their existing favorites and approach the “new Twitter” with a clean slate.

Just three hours and a few minutes later, Walk got the answer he was looking for, tweeting:

It’s a good bet that Twitter will be less than pleased by the emergence of a tool(s) like this which, if adopted in bulk, would wreak havoc on the company’s valuable user-data.

Update: Shortly after publishing Walk sent the following series of tweets:
