Decker, for a prettier Twitter

I made a Chrome extension which makes’s UX more tolerable, called decker. It:

  • Widens the content area and removes the columns with “Trends” and “Who to follow”, etc.
  • Resolves (i.e., removes) the redirects. You’ll go directly to the URL in a tweet.
  • Auto-loads new tweets instead of showing you the “N new tweets” bar. Pro tip: if you are scrolled down the page it will not auto-load new tweets, to avoid annoying scroll jumps.
  • Removes “Moments” from the nav.

The source code is here on GitHub.
