Control Panel for Twitter is a browser extension which gives you more control over Twitter and adds missing features and UI improvements
- Restores headlines under external links NEW
- Reverts the main "X" branding changes
- Calmer Home timeline by default – no algorithmic suggestions or Retweets, just what the people you follow are saying
- Less "engagement" – view counts, trending content and "Discover more" suggestions are hidden
- Hide boosted replies from Twitter Blue users
- Make the UI less busy by hiding UI items you don't use, or don't want
- Adds missing features like hiding Tweets from—or quoting—blocked or muted accounts, and muting quotes of specific Tweets

Safari version Frequently Asked Questions
I just downloaded Control Panel for Twitter from the App Store, why is it not working?
Safari browser extensions require you to manually enable settings to allow them to run. After installing from the App Store, you need to:
- Enable the extension – the Control Panel for Twitter app which opens after installation has a button which will take you to the appropriate page in Settings. Use it to toggle the extension on.
- Give the extension permission to run on Twitter – change the website access permissions for mobile.twitter.com and twitter.com to "Allow".
For an example, watch this video of enabling Control Panel for Twitter on iPhone.
I opened Twitter using a bookmark I added to my Home Screen - why is Control Panel for Twitter not working?
Safari doesn't currently allow browser extensions to run in Home Screen Web Apps. Open Safari then navigate to Twitter normally.
You can use the Shortcuts app to create your own shortcut to open Twitter in Safari. For an example, watch this video of setting up a Twitter shortcut on iPhone.

This is a Safari feature we have no control over - to get rid of it, you have to uninstall the official "X" app.
