    Userscript to modify the looks of twitter.com

    GoodTwitter2[0] is the only reason that I still use the web version anymore. I can handle the mobile interface on a mobile device, but making the desktop experience mobile-themed was the straw that almost broke the camel's back. GoodTwitter2 fixes that, thankfully.

    The userscript also fixes the reverse-chronological issue. There's literally a setting that enables one to force "Latest Tweets First" mode, so it'll switch back to the "latest" feed whenever Twitter has decided that you should be viewing their "home" feed instead.

  • Mastodon

    Your self-hosted, globally interconnected microblogging community

    If you want "Twitter" without ads, algorithmic feed manipulated by marketing, actual moderation, and actual community, I suggest joining a Mastodon[0] instance. It's kinda like using Twitter in 2007, but with way more features. For example, selective permissions per-"toot" ("followers only", or "unlisted" which makes it not show up on the public timeline, but still visible on your profile or to followers), content warning on toots (like a spoiler warning), full image description support, much longer posts...

    Personally I'm closer every day to abandoning Twitter and just focusing solely on Mastodon. Many in my social circle have already done so.

  • twitterlanes

    I made a little tool a while back for splitting up your follows by their posting frequency, but setting "nlists" to 1 should accomplish what you asked for.

    You do unfortunately need a twitter developer account. Also fair warning, as far as I know I'm the only current user, but works on my machine™.
