Summary

Nitter Instead is a Firefox Add-on to redirect all Twitter links to use the Nitter Instance https://nitter.kavin.rocks/. Nitter does not use JavaScript, has no ads, no tracking (your client never even touches Twitter servers), and its faster!

This Add-on was created for personal use, but published to comply with Mozilla’s guidelines. Code was mostly copied from Invidio Quick Redirect by Austin Moore and MDN Web Docs.
