Removing "Promoted Tweets" (Ads) from Twitter: An UpdateBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // April 2, 2012 in Ad-Free Commercial Web, Twitter
Reacting to my guest post in GeekWire last Thursday, Fiddling with user timelines: A wrong turn for Twitter?, my son, Dan Carleton, came up with what he says is an even better method to suppress promoted tweets (ads) than his prior script:
"I realized that there's a much more elegant way to do this by using CSS overrides. Here's a Chrome plugin that makes it easy:
"Caveat is that some slight padding might be left behind in the tweet stream, but there should be no lag in hiding new items brought in after initial page load!"
I don't notice the padding Dan refers to. I did have to exit the browser, though, and restart it, to get the suppression to take effect.
