How to Hide All Retweets All Over Twitter?

Here are the 3 methods that you can use to hide the retweets from your feed all over Twitter.

Method 1: Using Blindfold Twitter App

Blindfold is a Twitter app design to hide the retweets from Twitter feeds. You can set up and use this app by following these few simple steps:

First, go to the Blindfold website and sign in to this app using your Twitter account where you want to hide the retweets and authorize this app.

click hide retweets button

Once you do that, this app gives you two buttons; “HIDE RETWEETS” and “SHOW RETWEETS“. Simply press the “HIDE RETWEETS” button and all the regular retweets will be hidden from your Twitter feeds now on. If you want to see the retweets again, you can do that with the “SHOW RETWEETS” button.

Method 2: Using Twitter “Mute” Feature

This method uses Twitter’s built-in Mute Keyword feature to hide the retweets from the feeds. You can easily turn this feature on by going through the following steps:

  1. Open the Twitter website (desktop version) and log in with your account.
  2. Go to Settings and Privacy and Choose “Mute Keyword” from the navigation panel present on the left side (direct link).
  3. Click the “Add” button there and type “RT @” as the phrase.
  4. Uncheck “Notifications” (if you want) and tap the “Add” button to save the mute phrase.

Method 3: Using Script to Hide Retweets of All Followed Profiles at Once

As you might already know, Twitter lets you turn off the retweet for individual users. This method uses a script to turn off retweets from all the Twitter users you follow. You can use this script with these steps:

  1. Go to Twitter on a desktop web browser and open the following section (https://twitter.com/following). Scroll to reach the end of the page in order to load all the users you follow.
  2. Once you reach the bottom, open the Developer console by pressing the F12 key on your keyboard.
  3. Paste the script given below in the Developer console and press enter to run the script.

a=Array.prototype.slice.call(document.querySelectorAll("div.ProfileCard-content div.dropdown"));a.forEach(function(e) {e.querySelector("button").click(); e.querySelector("li.retweet-off-text button").click(); })

This will automatically turn off the retweets from all users you follow. And, if you want to reverse this action i.e., want to turn on the retweets, simply replace off with on in the script ("li.retweet-off-text button").

Note that, this method might not turn off retweets for all the users in a single instance. If that’s the case, try to run the script a few screen-lengths at a time.

Closing Words:

These are the 3 methods to hide retweets on all over Twitter. You can use any of these methods to hide the retweets as per your convince. By hiding the retweets, you can have a neat and calmer feed.
