Unblocking twitter accounts

I block twitter accounts. A lot.

I can't recall I've blocked somebody over a comment or an interaction.

But I block the advertiser of every advertisement.

I block fake posters and likers of my content.

I probably had 15,000 blocked accounts. I follow like 2,000.

But with X going Premium and offering no ads, I thought it'd be a good time to forgive and forget (or soft delete as it were), and go back to 0 blocked users and see what happens.

Here's a script I ran to click "unblock" for every account I was blocking.
