Remove algorithmic content

  • Keeps you on the Latest Tweets (chronological) timeline, automatically switching you back if Twitter tries to move you to the "Home" (algorithmic) timeline
    • Hides the new timeline tabs if you have them
  • Hide "Who to follow", "Follow some Topics" etc. in the timeline
  • Hide "What's happening", "Topics to follow" etc. in the sidebar
  • Hide "More Tweets" when linked to a tweet
  • Hide algorithmic tweets based on likes, replies, lists, and suggested topics in the "Home" timeline, if you use it

Control which tweets shared by people you follow appear on your timeline

  • Move Retweets to a separate timeline (default setting), or hide them entirely
  • Move Quote Tweets and replies to them to a separate timeline, or hide them entirely (off by default)
  • Hide tweets quoting accounts you've blocked or muted
  • Mute quoting of specific tweets - adds a "Mute this conversation" menu item to Quote Tweets in the timeline

UI improvements

  • Disable use of the Chirp font if you don't like it
  • Uninvert the Follow and Following buttons to make them less jarring
    • Choice of monochrome or themed (classic) styling for uninverted buttons
  • Use the site's normal text font style in the primary navigation menu on desktop to make it less distracting
  • Fast blocking - skips the confirm dialog when you try to block an account
  • Add a new item to the "More" menu which takes you straight to the "Add muted word" page
  • When viewing a tweet's Quote Tweets, hide the quoted tweet to make more room for quotes

Hide UI items you don't use

  • Hide navigation items you don't use, and other distracting screen elements such as the account switcher and Messages drawer
  • Hide items you don't use in the "More" menu

Experiments

Optional features you can try, to see how they change how you perceive and use Twitter:

  • Hide metrics: hide like, retweet, quote tweet and follower counts
  • Reduced interaction mode: hide the action bar under tweets – replies are now the only means of interacting
  • Full-width timeline content: hide the sidebar and let timeline content go full-width
  • Verified accounts: highlight tweets by – or interacting with – verified accounts, or hide them to simulate the aftermath of the July 2020 Twitter hacks
  • Disable the home timeline: find yourself wasting too much time on Twitter? Try preventing use of the home timeline, going to Notifications or Messages by default instead
