Summary

Control Panel for Twitter is a browser extension for Twitter - its main goals are to reduce the amount of algorithmic content you see, give you more control over your timeline and make the UI less distracting.

By default, your Home timeline will be the reverse-chronological "Following" timeline, which will only contain tweets and quote tweets from the people you follow. The algorithmic "For you" timeline will be hidden, and Control Panel for Twitter will keep you on "Following" if Twitter tries to automatically take you off it. Everything is configurable, so start by opening the options popup and customizing to your liking. Changes you make in the options will be applied immediately.

Features:

Home timeline

  • Defaults to the "Following" (chronological) timeline, automatically switching you back if Twitter tries to move you to the "For you" (algorithmic) timeline
  • Hide the "For you" timeline tab (default setting)
  • Move Retweets to a separate tab (default setting), or hide them entirely
  • Move Quote Tweets and replies to them to a separate tab in the Home timeline, or hide them entirely
  • Hide Retweets in pinned Lists
  • Hide tweets quoting accounts you've blocked or muted
  • Mute quoting of specific tweets - adds a "Mute this conversation" menu item to Quote Tweets in the Home and List timelines
  • Hide the floating "See new Tweets" button
  • Hide "Who to follow", "Follow some Topics" etc. in the Home timeline and elsewhere
  • Full-width timeline: hide the sidebar and let timeline content go full-width on Home, Lists and Communities

  • Hide the "Verified" tab in Notifications and the "Verified Followers" tab in Followers/Following
  • Restore headlines under external links

super awesome add-on, but i do have ONE issue. When you restore the "other links under tweets" no number shows up to tell you how many like or retweets something has. small nitpick tho
