I feel that lately Twitter has just become unbearable. I am going to sound like a curmudgeon but I miss the old twitter. Remember when you had a timeline full of peoples ideas? Remember when more than 3 tweet fit on a page? Remember when you used to be able to be able to see tweet from people that you actually follow? Those were the good old days, when I log into Twitter these days I am bombarded with bullshit.
But Lev, why not just stop using Twitter instead of complaining about it on your blog?
That is an excellent question.
Believe it or not, I actually like Twitter. The people I chose to follow consistently provide me with awesome things to read about, explore and discuss. The problem is that finding the things that I care about has become increasingly difficult in this sea of bullshit.
I thought all hope was lost until I found Twipster. It seems like it was made specifically for curmudgeon’s like me. I absolutely love this extension, it just cuts out all of the bullshit and makes Twitter usable for me again. I made a few additions to also remove images and videos and personally I think this is a much better twitter experience.

If you made it this far, you should probably follow me on twitter. 🙂 Follow @levlaz
