Twitter recently gave its web interface a much-needed redesign, and it’s actually a pretty good one. But some people might object to how the stream of new tweets suddenly jumped from the left side of the page to the right. Thankfully, for those of you that are scared and confused, there’s a quick and easy fix.
True to their name, the guys over at How-To Geek have developed a useful little Chrome extension that does the flipping for you. All you need to do is install it, and hey-presto, new tweets will appear on the left.
For those of you using Firefox, the extension’s creators advise installing Greasemonkey first. All other browsers are probably out of luck.
Now, software isn’t eternal, and at some point this little extension may not work so well, due to changes in the Twitter site design or what have you. Or maybe you’ve decided that you’re less afraid of change and can live without artificially flipped content. Fortunately, Chrome has an extremely easy to use extensions manager. Simply click on Window>Extentions, or click on the little wrench in the corner and then Tools>Extensions. From there you can deactivate or remove the “Fix Twitter” extension.
If you’re so inclined, head over to How-To Geek and start downloading.
