Tweaks for Twitter is a web browser extension that improves the user interface of twitter.com in many ways. Tweaks works in Safari, Google Chrome, and any other Chromium-based web browser, such as Brave, Microsoft Edge, and Vivaldi. (Chrome and Chromium browsers require enabling "Developer mode" in the Extensions window.)
Tweaks for Twitter is made by indie developer Jeff Johnson. If you need support, please email me at email@example.com or read the support site at https://underpassapp.com/tweaks/support.html
Tweaks makes Twitter better in your web browser by removing these annoying elements:
• Promoted tweets
• Messages drawer
• Who to follow
• Topics to follow
• Keyboard shortcuts
• Hover cards
• What's happening?
• This Tweet is unavailable.
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 https://t.co/ 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.)
• If Twitter forces you to use the algorithmic "Home" timeline, Tweaks now lets you switch to the reverse chronological "Latest Tweets" timeline! Tweaks makes the timeline switch appear for Twitter accounts created in 2016 and later.
• Added dark mode support to the preferences, and improved the preferences layout.
Ratings and Reviews
takes the anxiety out of twitter
I really don't know why Twitter thinks it is OK shoving really frustrating, anxiety-inducing Trends into our faces. Do I want to be reminded that humanity on Twitter is a cesspool? No. Tweaks for Twitter fixes that and with barely any setup (just make sure it's enabled as an extension and for Twitter). This is a huge improvement over the custom style that had to be used with StopTheMadness (also a great extension). I hope this extension is maintained just as frequently as StopTheMadness!
Especially with all the annoyances it removes from twitter in such a tiny download. More apps like this please!
