Tweak New Twitter

Reduce "engagement" and tone down some of New Twitter's UI

Features

  • Always use the Latest Tweets (chronological) timeline - automatically switches you back when Twitter decides they'd rather you were on the "Home" (algorithmic) timeline because "engagement"
  • Move retweets to a separate Retweets timeline, or hide them entirely
  • Remove sidebar content (Trends, Who to follow, sidefooter)
  • Remove some less-used links from the primary nav (Explore, Bookmarks, Links)
  • Use the site's base font size and normal font weight in the primary nav to make it less distracting (using your selected font size from the Display / Customize your view dialog)

Screenshots

Timeline view with all tweaks enabled (default):
