Tweaks for Twitter is a Safari extension that improves the user interface of in many ways. Tweaks is made by indie developer Jeff Johnson. If you need support, please email me at or read the support site at

Tweaks makes Twitter better in Safari by removing these annoying elements:
• Promoted tweets
• Messages drawer
• Trends
• Who to follow
• Topics to follow
• Keyboard shortcuts
• Hover cards
• What's happening?
• This Tweet is unavailable.
• Explore
• More Tweets
• Bottom bar when logged out
• "See more Tweets from" that blocks the whole window when logged out
• "See new Tweets"
• Followed by some Tweeters you follow, Some accounts you follow often like this Tweeter, etc.
• Blue checkmarks
• Verified Notifications

Tweaks automatically selects "Following" in your "Home" timeline!

Tweaks also unsticks the title at the top of the Twitter window, making it scrollable.

Tweaks replaces shortened URLs in tweet links with the real unshortened URLs, allowing you to bypass Twitter's click tracker. (This feature does not work for Twitter cards or user profiles.)

Tweaks has a number of options you can enable:
• Hide all retweets from all users on all timelines
• Hide animated gif profile photos
• Hide the downvote buttons
• Swap the colors of the Follow and Following buttons
• Hide tweet stats
• Disable the Twitter "Chirp" font
• Automatically expand "Show replies" in conversations! (This feature currently works only with English, German, and Spanish display languages on Twitter.)
• Hide "Home", "For you", and "Following" at the top of the home page!

Near perfection!

I hate using apps with ads I can’t block, or random “here is a tweet you’ll like!”, etc so I always stuck to the web client with my own Twitter tweaks into a bookmarklet that made
it better.
This extension does just about everything I want, and a bunch of things I don’t, but it’s all configurable!
There’s a few quibbles though:
* the browser back button now pops you at a seemingly random place — I think it’s just not capable of knowing where to go back to when it’s zapped content
* no style — seriously it’s pretty bare bones with not so great descriptions of what all the various buttons do, but you can figure it out

It works and lets you gain some control over Twitter, and it’s cheap. Just buy it.

Cross-platform fix: set it and forget it

Around 2022, Twitter in a browser started popping up a modal dialog box after you had scrolled down a page, to “remind” you to log in. This extension fixes many other annoyances as well, but they’re just a bonus for me: once again, Twitter once again behaves like a regular web page in Safari on macOS, iPadOS, and iOS.

Tweetbot refugee

Twitter still dominated hive mind but is wallpapered with ads and annoyances.

This fixes the site to be usable again. Feedback go dev, on your app page mention Two step install process: enable extension and give it access to the Twitter domain.

Not obvious the second step is needed from your current text under the blue wrench.
