Make Twitter Kick Ass

Here’s a little screencast I made for you to help improve your Twitter browser experience. In the video I talk about using Greasemonkey (you must install this first) in Firefox (my browser of choice) to install some awesome scripts to make Twitter that much better.


Yes, there is a slight delay matching my voice with the video. Still, not bad for a free screencast. I’m open to other options in the future. :-)

What are your favorite Greasemonkey scripts?

  • Ooh! I'm socially healthy!!

    Actually, thanks for pointing out the video – not b/c I'm in it (yay! I'm in it!) but b/c those are awesome greasemonkey scripts, checking them out.
    Then wondering if there's a way I can disable the picture viewing in Troy's – b/c I love everything but that. Hate having embedded pics in my stream. Have had “issues” with that on other services with those who didn't get that not everything is “work safe” or “kid safe” to post there.

    Thanks Dave!!!

  • Yea, see the settings in the top right corner, and uncheck “image embed”

  • Thanks. Great point.
    There are settings in the top right corner once you install Troy's Script.
    You can configure it in a bunch of different ways, so disabling images is
    easy to do.

    Let me know what you think.

    You need a normal “follow” link (a little blue bird icon would be awesome) for people that don't like logging into their Twitter account on someone else's webpage, so we don't have to search you. Especially if we use flashblock. Just saying.

  • Thanks, I'll add one.

  • Thanks for the intro to Greasemonkey. Wish one of the apps incorporated all this functionality.

  • Your welcome. Install greasemonkey first, then the others. it should
    be pretty easy. If you need help let me know.

    Poor spelling and extreme brevity brought to you by iPhone.

  • I use Power Twitter and another add-in called TwitterBar; as for GreaseMonkey scripts I've been Nested Twitter Replies but I'll give Troys Twitter Script a try – it looks like it's Nested Twitter Replies plus more, which is good.

  • Aha! So Troys Twitter Script does an auto-More when you reach the foot of a page.

    Something's adding a lot of RT buttons though – might be a couple of plugins/scripts don't play nicely together.

  • It's the Bit.ly Preview add-in that's causing the RT echo! Not sure why it's adding a RT button – should only be concerned with bit.ly links, surely?

  • Bit.ly Preview uninstalled; sticking with Nested Twitter Replies over Troys Twitter Script though :)

    OK, I'll stop filling up your Comments section now :) Thanks for the tips, Dave.
