Getting rid of twitter in-line media

Chances are that you are a twitter user and while not using your mobile phone you are using the official twitter.com website. If not, you’re in luck, because recently they added quite a nasty feature that you can’t toggle on or off — the in-line media display.

Here’s a quick and clean hack to get rid of this nonsense.

  1. Install Stylish for Firefox or for Chromium.
  2. Restart your browser
  3. Click on the stylish-empty icon → Write new style → for twitter.com…
  4. Add
    div.tweet > div.content > div.js-media-container { display: none !important; }

    before the last bracket so that it looks similar to this:

    @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
    
    @-moz-document domain("twitter.com") {
     div.tweet > div.content > div.js-media-container { display: none !important; }
    }
  5. Click Save. The icon should turn stylish-active and you should immediately be able to see the metamorphosis

Much better now, isn’t it? Enjoy your new and improved twitter on a sunny day over a beach! :)
