Tweaks for Twitter is a web browser extension that improves the user interface of in many ways. Tweaks works in Safari, Google Chrome, and any other Chromium-based web browser, such as Brave, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Vivaldi. (Chrome and Chromium browsers require enabling "Developer mode" in the Extensions window.)

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 your web browser 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.
• This tweet is from an account you blocked/muted.
• This tweet includes a word you muted.
• 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
• Twitter Blue
• Verified Notifications
• Verified Organizations

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 tweets from blue checkmarks!
• Hide retweets from all users on all timelines
• Hide retweets from all users on your Home timeline
• Hide animated gif profile photos
• Hide the downvote buttons
• Hide the tweet button
• 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!

What’s New

Version 17.0

• New preference: Hide verified checkmark tweets! In other words, hide all tweets from blue checkmarks.
• Hide "This tweet is unavailable" now also hides "This tweet is from an account you blocked", "This tweet is from an account you muted", and "This tweet includes a word you muted".
• Home selection: Added a Second List option. This is a workaround for an issue where the First List option unintentionally selects the Subscribed Tweets tab.
• Replace links in tweets: links are now replaced even in hidden tweets, because you might choose to unhide those tweets.

Improves Twitter for ALL

As someone who neither has a Twitter account nor wants one, I assumed this app was not for me. How wrong I was!

Despite the fact that I do not want to spend my time on Twitter, it is hard to avoid articles that link to some discussion there; and for a casual user taking the occasional first-hand peek at a Twitter discussion elsewhere referenced, this app makes braving Twitter's website far, far less exhausting.

Whether you use Twitter constantly or rarely, if you find Twitter's website annoying, THIS APP WILL HELP!

(Unfortunately, an app that will make the content Twitter chooses to publish less annoying is still a pipedream...)

Money well spent on a Safari extension!

My only (hopefully constructive) criticism is when you open the tooltip menu, you get Times New Roman/a serif font. Hopefully in a future update, we get a system (sans-serif?) font for better UI legibility.

This is the exact safari extension I've needed for ages. I needed to turn off blocking of keyboard shorcuts as I'm a VoiceOver user and use those, but this is so awesome. Well done!
