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, 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.
• 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:
• Automatically expand "Show replies" in conversations (currently works only with English, German, and Spanish display languages on Twitter)
• Disable the Twitter "Chirp" font
• 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
• Warn whenever Twitter switches your timeline from "Latest Tweets" to "Home"

What’s New

Version 9.4

Improved the "Warn about Home timeline" and "Show missing timeline switch" features.

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!
