Hide New Twitter Trends

December 9th, 2011

I was just “upgraded” to the new Twitter look. I never have liked that I am forced to see Trends and Who to Follow, neither of which I care to see or use. Since none of the current extensions work to hide this noise, I had to come up with a css workaround.

Here is the custom css I came up with to hide both the Trends and Who to Follow boxes in the new Twitter look:

.dashboard .component .module, .dashboard .module.trends.component .flex-module{ display: none; }

That css will also hide the footer box, which can be useful at times. In order to get the footer box back, use this css after the above code:

.dashboard .component .site-footer { display: block; }

Unfortunately if you are a Chrome user, like myself, you can’t add custom css. You will have to use an extension like Personalized Web to do your custom css work.

In Personalized Web, you will add that same custom css and then add in the Matched URL: ^http[s]*://

Once this is added, refresh your twitter page and voilĂ , the junk is gone.
