I use a couple of things that massively improve Twitter.

First, I use the uBlock Origin extension to adblock the entire web, so that helps. But I also use a few of its features to de-junk twitter. You can go to the options, My Filters, and add:

Code: Select all

twitter.com##[data-suggestion-json*=ActivityTweet]
twitter.com##[data-suggestion-json*=Recap]
twitter.com##[data-suggestion-json*=RecycledTweet]
twitter.com##.VideoGuide
twitter.com##.wtf-module
The first one gets rid of likes, the next two prevent it from presenting you junk, and the last two block video and who to follow. When a retweet annoys me, I go into the person that retweets it's profile and do a "Mute Retweets".

The result is a rather pleasing and junk-free twitter.

Bless your soul, you saint. I'll be using this from now on. Thank you, hopefully this will freshen up the experience for me as a main tool.
I made a little KN named Carin. About a girl named Carin. Yeah, that girl in the little icon there. You should click on her. Do it.

Until today I still laugh about the irony of me failing an exam because I was too scared of failing the exam causing me to not be able to sit it in the first place (=fail). Oh the irony of anxiety.
