Remove What's Happening

example html javascript

This line of code finds the “What’s happening” section of Twitter and removes it from the page:

javascript:document.querySelector('[aria-label="Timeline: Trending now"]').remove();

You can drag this link to your browser’s bookmarks bar to create a bookmarklet:

What’s not happening

Then when you’re on Twitter, click that bookmarklet to get rid of the “What’s happening” section.

Remix Ideas

  • Modify the code to remove clickbait on other sites.
  • Remove any tweets that contain annoying phrases like “buckle up”.
  • Replace phrases like “playing devil’s advocate” with “being a jerk”.
