Regularly delete old mastodon posts with this script

Twitter expects that your tweets form a permanent record. I am not a fan of this feature, and I don’t really like how Mastodon included it. Microblogging, to me, is about ephemeral, offhand thoughts, and I’d like to delete them automatically after a certain point.

I put together a simple script that does this, written in Go, with no dependencies other than the Go standard library. If you set up this script to run on a regular basis, you can make sure your old posts vanish.
