twitter-soft-unfollow

A chrome extension that lets you unfollow in a "soft" manner, without really unfollowing

Motivation

You want to stop seeing tweets from someone, but you don't want to unfollow him because he might get offended.

Chromestore

This project is in production in the Google Chromestore: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/twitter-soft-unfollow/fneefkpfajhkoimlabgcbhpbpjppceke

Features

  • Unfollowed users are stored using Chrome Storage API
  • It relies on some DOM names (such as .new-tweets-bar, .tweet[data-screen-name='foo'] and .tweet-text)
  • It works when you infinite scroll (bottom) too, using chrome.webRequest.onCompleted
  • It works with when new tweets appear (top) too, attaching a click event to .new-tweets-bar
