Guest post by Venkat. How can you block Foursquare and Paper.li tweets on Twitter timeline? Foursquare accounts automatically share every check in to followers on Twitter and Facebook. Foursquare tweets are annoying and no one wants to know or are interested in what you check-in.
It is not possible for us to ask all foursquare users we are following to turn off sending every check-in to Facebook and twitter. Paper.li updates on twitter also contributes to your anger, but here is how toÂ block foursquare and Paper.li tweets in your timeline.
Block foursquare and Paper.li tweets
Install the Proxlet Chrome extension which works with Web Twitter. Proxlet allows you to mute users, filter or block tweets. Weâ€™re using Proxlet to block Foursquare andÂ paper.li tweets.
InstallÂ Proxlet extension for Chrome and search for â€œ4sq.comâ€ in twitter search box. Foursquare tweets are shown by twitter, then click â€œProxletâ€ button and clickÂ blockapp foursquare – thatâ€™s it and the annoying foursquare tweetsÂ will never appear in your timeline againÂ from on. DoÂ same for Paper.li also.
Another Twitter tool,Â Slipstream also allowsÂ toÂ hide andÂ filter tweets. Slipstream available forÂ Chrome as an extension.Â InstallÂ Slipstream for ChromeÂ andÂ search for â€œ4sq.comâ€ tweets from the search box, then select a tweet, click â€œHideâ€ button below the tweetÂ and modify the tweet toÂ http://4sq.com and choose to block foursquare tweets in every timeline or home timeline. Then click â€œHideâ€ and the filterÂ will beÂ created – Foursquare tweets wonâ€™t appear from now on.
Remember both Proxlet and Slipstream works for New Twitter only.
