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

If your Twitter account has no switch to select "Latest Tweets" at the top of your timeline, Tweaks forces the missing switch to appear!

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.)
• Warn whenever Twitter switches your timeline from "Latest Tweets" to "Home"

What’s New

Version 6.0

• New feature: Hide tweet stats! If you don't want to see the numbers of likes, retweets, and quote tweets, there's a preference to hide them.
• Hide the "Suggested" list after you follow someone.
• Fixed a bug where tweets were still displayed immediately after blocking someone.
• Fixed a bug where "Topics to follow" could be hidden when the "Hide non-tweets in timeline" preference is disabled.

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.

Lowers my blood pressure

Twitter's trends are almost always toxic and I avoid Twitter on the web because of them. This extension solves that problem AND can optionally restore the Follow button color that has confused me every time. So glad this extension made it to iOS from MacOS. Twitter in Safari is usable again.

It works as what it says. Don't use system back gesture. Use twitter home button on the bottom left corner of the page to go back.
