How to Turn off Twitter Retweets with Python

Alexis Madrigal wrote an article in the Atlantic proposing a new way of helping user to tame their Twitter feeds. Turn off retweets.

I really think that he is on to something and after having tried it for a while, I wanted to code a way of doing this without having to manually go to each user’s profile and turn off all retweets. Fortunately with python we have a pretty quick option.
