Regain control of Twitter with 3 Chrome Extensions
Twitter can often be a sea of confusion and irrelevant tweets.
Here are the 3 extensions that have really helped me to tame my Twitter feed.
1) Web Marker
This is my favourite. If i’m at home, I normally read Twitter on my iPhone or on iPad via Twitteriffic. Other times, I read Twitter on the web.
Tweet marker is a service that lets you sync all these services together, so if you read tweets on your phone morning, then check Twitter on your desktop at lunchtime, you’ll easily see where you got up to.
2) Open Tweet Filter
This extension is great for filtering out things you don’t want to see.
- foursquare checkins
- certain subjects (X Factor, US Elections)
- YouTube videos
English Tweets Only (see edit)
Some of the people I follow also speak French and German but I didnt want to see these tweets in my timeline. However, I didn’t want to unfollow them as they also tweeted in English too.
This extension helps to clear the clutter by stripping tweets I wont understand.
EDIT: I was using the Microsoft Translation API for this and it seems you now have to pay for this! So annoying! Does anyone know a free translation API?
