Get in the Twitter driver’s seat using Proxlet
These days, Twitter delivers lots of useful information – and quite a bit of useless static as well. I had not managed to find a really efficient way of filtering Twitter traffic until I checked out the Proxlet Chrome extension @scobleizer tweeted about and hey, it sure looks very, very interesting indeed. As it turns out, Proxlet also seems to work with quite a few Twitter clients so I will definitely try it out on my phone.Using Twitter through the web interface, the Chrome extension gives an additional option next to the ‘Reply’ link, aptly called ‘Proxlet’. The pop-up (see screenshot) shows the commands applicable to that Tweet; something like ‘mute user/hashtag’ or even ‘block app’! And yes, using Proxlet it is also possible to show only Tweets with links in them – take a look at Proxlet.com for the configuration options (after installing the extension).
