    Control Panel for Twitter [1] can automatically hide boosted blue replies for you

    …although if an account is big enough, you're safer looking at the Quote Tweets instead for actual comments (it also restores the old direct link to those in the focused Tweet), e.g. you're lucky to get more than a handful of non-blue replies under an Elon Musk tweet among the engagement farmers before you hit the maximum number of replies Twitter will load

    In terms of a browser extension for Twitter, I highly recommend Control Panel for Twitter. It works as a browser extension as well as on some mobile browsers. It is highly customizable to filter out who/what you don't want to see and is fully open source if you feel the need to tweak.

    It's updated regularly and the creator is highly active on Twitter to provide updates and answer questions - @ControlPanelFT

    If you decide to use it, drop the guy a donation, they work hard on it!

    > Prioritising the replies of people who pay money for it was a body blow

    A Twitter reply thread will only load around 200 Tweets in total, so on Tweets which have a lot of engagement, it's more likely that your reply will never be seen even if you paid, which defeats their whole purpose for ruining reply threads as a selling point. Just an incredibly short-sighted change.

    My browser extension for Twitter [0] can hide replies from "verified" users - if you look at any Elon Musk tweet with this feature enabled, you'll be lucky if you see more than 1 reply.

    Quote Tweets are where it's at now if you want to find comments on busy tweets which aren't Twitter Blue user posting multiple cry-laugh emojis, and they've recently made those take multiple clicks to access, from one of 2 different menus (my extension also restores the old Quote Tweets link).

    While I realize this does nothing for mobile (RIP third-party clients), Control Panel for Twitter [1] has been nice for me to use as a browserscript. Defaults/hides "For You" and tweaks a bunch of other stuff (hideable trends, etc).

    On desktop, the extension "Control Panel for Twitter" will let you "Replace X branding changes", it's great.

    You can also hide the idiots with the BlueLiteBlocker extension

    Makes Twitter a bit more like it was before idiot in chief took over
