Zen + Twitter.
Zen + Twitter = Zwitter.
Twitter is noisy and crowded. Zwitter is more focused and less frantic, more signal and less noise. It lets you see the content you actually want to see.
Options - Go "zwitternonymous" - replace all the names and profile links in your feed with "anonymous" to focus on the tweets instead of the tweeters. As well, Zwitter can hide the photos and videos in your feed.
