In a time where internet outrage is at its peak, one way to escape this is by mute keywords, hashtags and by using regular expressions.
Twitter is the only social network I use one a daily basis. I switched to Tweetbot years ago as my primary Twitter client and one of the features I miss in the official client are the possibility to mute tweets by regular expressions or by specified clients.
I wanted to write down some regular expressions and muted clients I use in Tweetbot to keep my timeline cleaner.
Here are some examples of regular expressions that I mute with Tweetbot.
By default, mentions, searches and lists are not affected by regular expression. But it's possible to enable it for every regular expression.
I didn't want to see conversations between other people only because I follow both of them. This regular expressions mute mentions for you also! That means you only see this in your mentions pane.
Mute all tweets beginning with:
. @foo or
Mute all tweets with more than two hashtags like
foo bar [...] #first #second #third
Mute all tweets with a hashtag that contains more than 15 characters like
foo bar [...] #veryLongHashtag
Mute all tweets with more than 2 uppercase words like
YOU'RE SO WRONG
