How to enable Tweaks for Twitter in Safari for Mac

You only need to enable Tweaks for Twitter once in Safari, and then it will remain enabled permanently. It will remain enabled even after you install new versions of Tweaks for Twitter and Safari. If you ever need to disable Tweaks for Twitter, just uncheck the box in Safari Preferences.

Troubleshooting:

If you're having trouble enabling the extension in Safari Preferences because the checkboxes don't respond to clicks, please see the Apple support document on this subject. For more details, see my article Safari bug: can't enable extensions on Catalina.

If Tweaks for Twitter is missing in Safari Extensions Preferences on macOS, this may be a macOS bug with Launch Services. To restore the extension: quit Safari, copy the following command, and paste it into the Terminal app (located in the Utilities subfolder of the Applications folder):

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -f -R /Applications/Safari.app

Tweaks for Twitter is a Safari web extension, requiring Safari version 14 or later. It is not supported in Safari version 13 or earlier.
