Twitter sometimes shows you tweets that people whom you follow 'like' or 'follow'. This extension provides a toggle to hide those.
# Twitter 'Likes' Hider
While you can block, mute and mute retweets, on occasion Twitter will show you what someone you follow 'likes' or 'follows', and there is no way to mute that. This extension will hide those 'like' and 'follow' tweets, and let you toggle them on and off.
Are you on Twitter, but need to ensure that no wrongthink invades your echo chamber? Want to seal your filter bubble even tighter? Got all the idiots blocked, the dummies muted, and problematic retweets banned from your feed?
There is yet one more crack in your Twitter dam: sometimes, annoyingly, Twitter will show you what other people in your newsfeed 'like'. Who cares? You do! There you are, deep in harmonious clicktrance, seeing only ideas that make you happy, and then suddenly, Twitter shows you the 'like' of some misguided follower, and now your harmony is ruined as you spend the next several hours arguing with strangers on the internet. There is no way to block this either!
**Twitter 'Likes' Hider** prevents that unhappy occurrence. Install it and be bothered no more with the likes and preferences of stupid, crazy and bad people!
Note that **Twitter 'Likes' Hider** works only on your main Twitter feed. If you visit a profile and see something horrible that they like, well, you have only yourself to blame, don't you.
NB: All of the above was irony, doncha know. Please do not call people you disagree with "idiots", and do broaden your political and social circles!

## New in release 1.5
Twitter made the mistake of showing me 'like' and 'follows' Twits again, so I jumped on updating this immediately to hide the new Twits. I made it easier to update this in future and this version should eliminate the minute-long pause before the Twits are hidden
