If you were thinking of auto-deleting your old toots I have good news - I made a thing for you (me): github.com/hughrun/ephemetoot

If you're using ephemetoot, you probably should update:

github.com/hughrun/ephemetoot/

Version 1.2.0 includes a test mode @ocertat created (thanks Mark) and also now complies with the new(ish) API rate limit of 30 deletions per 30 minutes.

@hugh hey hugh, do you want me to take a stab at implementing the rate limit error? I probably couldn't get to it until late in the week though

@ocertat now that I've thought about it a bit more I'm not really happy with error handling generally. If I make some changes this weekend would you be happy to review them?

@ocertat hmm so I've been doing some testing and it looks like the mastodon module automatically takes care of rate limiting (see mastodonpy.readthedocs.io/en/s). Still testing but I'm tending to the conclusion that it's actually better *not* to try to deal with rate limits explicitly.

@hugh huh, that's neat. I didn't know mastodon.py did that!

@ocertat I thought I could just assign you as a reviewer but I don't seem to be able to do so. Do you mind looking at this? github.com/hughrun/ephemetoot/

@hugh sure! I glanced at it now but can run some tests this evening
