|Tweaks for Twitter
Better Twitter in your browser
Tweaks for Twitter is a web browser extension that improves the user interface of twitter.com in many ways. Tweaks works on iOS and iPadOS in Safari, and on macOS in Safari, Google Chrome, and any other Chromium-based web browser, such as Brave, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Vivaldi. Tweaks is sold separately on the iOS App Store and Mac App Store.
The developer of Tweaks for Twitter is Jeff Johnson AKA @lapcatsoftware, famous for solving the Mac OCSP appocalypse. Jeff's other software includes StopTheMadness, the beloved web browser extension that stops web sites from making your browser harder to use, and Link Unshortener, a Mac app that expands shortened web links. Jeff was a longtime engineer at Rogue Amoeba Software and also worked on the open source RSS reader Vienna.
