You can now use it but keep in mind that it is the first release, so it may contain some bugs. update: the project has stopped and since Twitter seems to have changed their HTML structure, the app is no more efficient. Future support is currently not planned.

What Twilter do for now:

  • scan the DOM on load to remove tweets posted by the muted accounts or containing a muted keyword ;
  • scan every inserted tweets to remove those which has been posted by a muted account or which contain a muted keyword ;
  • muted accounts & keywords can be added or removed from the options page.
