Script Summary: Script for hiding tweets about a specific topic



Thumb

Twitter keeps you informed with what matters the most to you today and helps you discover what might matter to you the most tomorrow. Twitter is a nice way to catch up with latest happenings which will eventually become the trending topics. But, at times, you might get bombarded with tweets (all of which carry the similar message) about these trending topics from different people and might have to miss some important ones. Unfortunately, Twitter does not provide any option to selectively hide the tweets i.e. hide / filter out the tweets that you are not interested on your time line. I have logged a ticket with Twitter requesting for the same. In the mean time, I have written a GreaseMonkey script and a Firefox add-on to do the same. This will work only with the Twitter web interface.
