Hide Who To Follow Suggestions On Twitter
By on August 10th, 2010

recently launched a new feature called "Who to Follow" where they display a list of suggestions of people you should be following on Twitter based on certain algorithms. Though this feature could be handy once in a while, it is always in your face whenever you visit the twitter web interface.

Twitter Who To Follow Suggestions List

Now the problem here is that Twitter does not provide users with an option to disable the suggestions list, and you will have to either use a browser extension or script to disable the "Who to follow" suggestions box on the Twitter web interface.

users have a choice with two different which will allow you to disable/hide or move the "Who To Follow" suggestions box. The Hide Twitter suggestions extension completely removes the suggestions box, whereas the Hide Twitter suggestions PLUS extension will move the box to the bottom of the sidebar so that it is not in your face every time.

If you are a , or Internet Explorer you can use a user style to hide the "Who to Follow" suggestions box in Twitter. To do that, open this link in the browser you are using and choose the options provided to you. If you are using Firefox or Internet Explorer you might need to install additional software or add-ons for your respective browser in order to use the User Style.

That’s it, till Twitter provides a way to disable the "Who To Follow" suggestions, you could use this trick to hide it from your web interface.

    I wrote a quick script, what it does is make the twitter look like the old one.

    This Style hides the "Who to follow", "You both follow" and "also followed by" (in top of all twitter profile pages but yours)

    You can dismiss them one-by-one. So a simple clicker script in GM or AHK could do the job of hiding this gayness.
