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.
