I am not yet inundated with Promoted Tweets in my Twitter timeline and as such haven’t had the need to block twitter users (aka: companies) who clutter up my timeline with what is tantamount to spam.

Until today, a friend of mine is getting overloaded with “spam”/promoted tweets in his timeline and I decided to figure out a way to help him. ┬áThe solution, TweetFilter, a browser extension that allows you to filter out and highlight tweets based on all sorts of criteria, including promoted tweets.

Available for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, and IE9.
