Twipster: Twitter for Chrome and Safari simplified
While we all know there are endless third party apps that help you to analyze your tweets and help you get their timing just right, and there are bells and whistles that help you tweet later or share tweets privately with your team, and then of course, there’s always the popular Twitter.com. No matter where you tweet from, there can be many distractions in the form of extra buttons and options. Maybe you want a hipster version of Twitter that is minimalist and streamlined, and void of the ugly.
Twipster offers users a way to enjoy Twitter in a simplified manner. Once you install the add-on and visit your Twitter account, you may not immediately notice a huge difference, but you will once you flip back to the original interface. Twipster essentially filters out all of the “trends” and “who you should follow” and makes for a continuous stream of tweets with none of the distractions.
The extension redesigns Twitter’s layout, removing menus, sidebars and background images; making it easier to read and very simple. Twipster is different from others in that it is not a Twitter client, it is simply a modification to the primary Twitter interface and it works very well. This is perfect for people who only want to view tweets in their Twitter feed.
In essence, this plug-in demonstrates how clean and readable Twitter could be without sacrificing and of the essential information or usability.
You may be seeking analytics and sharing options for Twitter and you may need all of the bells and whistles, but Twipster is helpful for when you need laser focus and you just haven’t had enough coffee in a day to sit still and pay attention unless everything shiny is stripped away.
