      About 50 of them had to have been long-dead old school Twitter apps that got shut out in the great API lockout. Then there was about five years where every social app on the planet leveraged Twitter’s API as an identity piece or for login. I should have purged as I went though.

      Syndicated copies:

  1. @kitt I had been “collecting” them since 2011 as a habitual social application user. There are obviously a lot of social related platforms that had Twitter apps. I think a lot of them were just using Twitter to collect my name, avatar, and email address. Lots were early Twitter applications that have since died.

  2. @kitt The worst part was that I copied and pasted a list of them and their initiation dates for some potential research/posterity. So the manual process was even longer… Thank goodness I don’t use Twitter for any/many of those old reasons anymore.
