Recently I've mostly been putting links on Twitter, since I can't think of anything else to post. I completely understand getting annoyed with this stuff. I've also mostly migrated to Fartbook or just not using social media at all. There's also this [Mastodon] which I'm tying to remember to use. But otherwise yeah, meh.

You can click here to filter out all this Twitter crap and view my regular posts.

This will hide all posts by any user with specified tags (i.e. "twitter"). This requires Greasemonkey - you can get it for Firefox, and there are Greasemonkey clones or workarounds for Chrome (1 or 2), Opera, and Safari. Internet Explorer is trickier - you can try this or this, but neither have been updated for a while.

Also, Twitter automagically converts all links to their internal/stupid shortener format. This is really annoying. You can get around this with Long URL Please [edit: updated edition!] which works with most browsers.
