How to Remove the Twitter ‘Election’ info

While I love using Twitter, the US elections don’t interest me all that much because I live in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). The joy of Firefox and Greasemonkey is that you can customise your own browsing experience by writing little script made especially for certain sites.

So I have made a Greasemonkey script to remove the election banner from view on Twitter. If you:

a) Use Firefox

b) Use Greasmonkey, or know what it is

You can try and install this script, and the election banner should be gone.


I am such a typical geek in some ways. My wife asked at the breakfast table: “What election thing on Twitter? Oh that one. Why don’t you just click on the little X to make it go away? Why bother with this complicated thing you’re talking about?”

She has a point. 😀 But at least very very briefly, I felt like I was actually make my own minuscule little corner of the world more to my own liking.

There is a comedy sketch waiting to be made from this interaction though.

    Ah, however, the twitter banner does come back again and you have to click it away again every day. Not that I notice it. 🙂
