Algorithmic feeds like Twitter’s tweet stream and Facebook’s news feed are designed to provide a never-ending list of distractions to keep you scrolling while slipping in advertisements targeted at you based on the personal information you’ve shared and the places you’ve visited online. It’s a negative unrewarding experience that’s sometimes hard to look away from.
This extension solves part of the problem by simply hiding the tweet stream. You can still check notifications, send and receive direct messages, visit other user profiles, and other activities as you normally would. The negative experience of the never-ending feed is removed so you can communicate without unnecessary distractions.
