A new Google Chrome extension called Proxlet now allows you to take a little more control over your Twitter accounts. If you are already a Twitter user you will already know how difficult a job it is to hide content you are not interested in. Even the Twitter block feature will still allow updates coming into your tweet stream if someone you follow retweets them.
Proxlet provides a new handy way to mute people, hashtags, Foursquare tweets and more from your feed, even if you’re not following them.
To setup Proxlet simply download and make sure you have the latest Twitter version on your system. After Proxlet is installed each tweet will have a small “proxlet” command box when you hover over it. Click on it will provide a pop-up box to appear with numerous filtering and blocking options. Enjoy!
