Although Twitter is struggling to turn a profit these days it still remains one of the most popular and most influential social media platforms on the Internet. If you are a heavy Twitter user you may find that at times your Twitter feed is overwhelmed with re-tweets, a considerable portion of which are junk. When you do find yourself in this situation, there is a way to quickly and easily hide all retweets.
Twitter is one of the most unique social media platforms on the Internet, allowing anyone to openly express their opinion to broader society. Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat all work in a similar way but don’t quite have the impact that a well hashtagged and well-worded tweet can have. Plus with the character limit now a thing of the past, tweets have an entirely new depth to them.
Unfortunately, as a result of such easy access to opinions, personas, and events, this amount of information can quickly become overwhelming. This is where a tiny tool called BlindFold can help manage your Twitter feed by hiding all retweeted content. BlindFold works in a super simple manner, letting you hide or show retweets to declutter your news feed. If you are following a lot of users, who like to retweet, you’ll be quite surprised much content Blindfold will hide, leaving you with more original content.
