This Google Chrome extension can walk back Twitter’s recent design changes
It also includes a few other interesting options.
Earlier this month, Twitter released a new design update that changed a few things. As usual, people had mixed feelings about the change, and many despised it entirely. If you were one of those that hate the changes, there is a Google Chrome extension that will revert the changes back to normal.
The Tweak New Twitter extension has just been released on Google Chrome. Just head over to that link and apply the extension to your browser. Once you’ve ensured that it’s enabled, Twitter will automatically revert to the old font and buttons, and things will be back to normal.
This extension isn’t limited to just reverting the settings back to the way they used to be. You can also do several other things to the site with this extension, like removing algorithmic content and customizing the UI to get rid of aspects of the website that you don’t use.
