Brings back the old Twitter Layout

Image from store Old Twitter Layout
Description from store Brings back the old Twitter layout, that Twitter has slowly started phasing out. No more mobile-like UI, no more currated feed. May require refreshing multiple times before it goes into effect due to browser caching. Want to thank me? Buy me a coffee! https://ko-fi.com/wolvan

  • (2022-12-16) Noah SNP: For people trying to use this, it no longer works, however, a new extension was made that works better. Search "OldTwitter" and it should be there, it is by DimDen. Enjoy!!!
  • (2022-10-28) 555: пишет обновить браузер, я обновила, и всё равно ничего не работает, всё перетыкала!

  • (2021-06-21) teh_supar_hackr 0010101: When in use the site says the browser is no longer supported, and won't let me use it without disabling it
  • (2021-05-01) Grayson gdl: Unfortunately doesn't work. I'm sure this extension was great when the old Twitter layout was still officially supported, but I'm rating it 1 star because people should know this doesn't work anymore.
  • (2021-03-22) Riki McAlear: Doesn't work.
  • (2021-03-15) drain: no longer works. the website just says "This browser is no longer supported."
  • (2021-01-30) Lillah Eris: Doesn't work
  • (2020-11-30) Bob 123: it is no longer supported :(
  • (2020-11-11) Kittipat Premrat: I don't know that extension will works properly. Because Twitter was noticed and notified that I was using an old browser that I didn't used it. I'm using the latest version of google chrome. I think, it is Twitter's fault that didn't care user experiences and forced any user to use their own UI and UX that users don't want or need it.To use this or 3rd party extension to modify their user's experiences. That such a terrible responsible for freedom and flexibility to use his or her favorite UI that more familiar to him or her past experiences.
  • (2020-10-03) Hades Tatsu: I am giving this five stars because when it worked it was awesome. However Twitter has since gotten upset people wanted the old layout back and has not blocked the use of it, telling you that your browser is no longer supported. I really hope there is a way to update this extension.

  • (2020-08-17) kaylee.: not working anymore
  • (2020-08-07) кивикью: не работает. твиттер пишет, что браузер не поддерживается, и что нужно войти в твиттер с другого браузера, либо удалить расширения.
  • (2020-08-04) hello there: How do you make it work? Every time I try to use it the website says "This browser is no longer supported"
  • (2020-07-30) Priscilla Jensen: Sadly its not valid on my computer
  • (2020-07-28) jay: not working, here is the new code in console that worked document.querySelectorAll("[data-testid*='unfollow']").forEach(function(e) { e.click(); $("div[data-testid='confirmationSheetConfirm']").click(); });
  • (2020-07-18) Philip: did not work for me
  • (2020-07-11) Eze Jurado: not working
  • (2020-04-15) colet47: I want rid of the banner on top! I see no way to reject it. I LOVED the extension, but I hate the banner.
  • (2020-04-14) the lurker: What they said. Get rid of that goddamn pink banner asking to record metrics or provide a 'NO' button, and I *might* consider still using it. Turned off for now pending your response. You should've asked first.
  • (2020-04-14) Tara Brady: Hi, I love this extension but is the big pink banner yours? It doesn't say what extension is causing it and it looks super sketchy at least on my browser. I'm afraid to click on it which is probably not the reaction you were going for.
  • (2020-04-13) Kane Carter: Was doing its job perfectly and then starting asking for my browsing history with no option to deny. Just a huge red banner on every Twitter page demanding for "metrics" with no way to get rid of it. Uninstalled.
  • (2020-04-13) Goose: fine with it until there was a big red banner asking me to allow metrics with no way to reject. nope.
  • (2020-04-01) Jo Ngoc Hang: Thx for this, I used it for a while now. But my TL recently got bugged, Twitter probably changed things in its code because now I don't see anymore the tweets I already RT/liked. Any update scheduled ?
  • (2020-03-11) paul james shellabear: thank no more new twitter
  • (2020-03-09) NW Social: Essential.
  • (2020-02-26) Selcuk Genc: It works! thank you!
  • (2020-02-22) asdasd asdasd: Display of image, gif, link and videos aren't working properly after update. This is the end of old layout?
  • (2020-02-22) Sir Stride: Hate the new layout . . . this works perfectly, thanks so much! People like you are angels, seriously. . . . Edit: as a part of the new update I have to agree this extension have access to read copy and paste data . . . . . . . hell nahh (I'll use the "GoodTwitter" extension instead of this one)
  • (2020-02-21) Kevin VanOrd: An excellent plug-in that did its job wonderfully until Twitter code changes caused it to stop working. Hoping it might be updated soon.
  • (2020-02-20) A Smith: Awesome! This extension is the only thing that makes Twitter readable. I just had to re-enable the extension after a Chrome update. (Two seconds with the stupid promoted tweets had me running to see why the extension wasn't working.) Thanks!!
  • (2020-02-20) Angry Santa: Worked perfectly until this morning. Now I'm stuck with the new layout again.
  • (2020-02-20) Razzee: It stopped working today and it startled me. Just needed to give it permissions again. This extension is more than essential. The default layout is aimed at mobile devices and looks pretty bad on a desktop PC.
  • (2020-02-20) gscloud: still working, but what exactly changes with the new permissions?
  • (2020-02-19) Anyer fillag: Love this extension, as I hated the way new Twitter looked and how it would randomly switch back to the Home setting of the feed (aka in random order due to popularity) rather than Latest Tweets which I prefer. Would like to add for the devs - Twitter is now warning me my browser is now out of date which is extension enabled so I guess the extension may stop working soon
  • (2020-02-18) Namara Trasmontano: amei
  • (2020-02-03) Jose Olivencia: Broken as of feb 3.
  • (2020-01-28) Godgo: 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
  • (2020-01-24) Stef seeyou: sa fonctionne nickel
  • (2020-01-22) Adam Yik: Thank you! The new layout made it really hard and tedious to use the internet archive to save tweets and pictures. I've just noticed just today that they also apply the modern layout to logged-off users on desktop.
  • (2019-12-11) Peter van Duinen: How come this plugin is changing the time stamp on tweets? If I refresh the original time stamp is there but it changes after a few seconds, it even goes back to the previous day.
  • (2019-12-08) J. L.: Doesn't quite reach the same level of functionality that the old layout, but it's the best we've got and I don't have any complaints
  • (2019-12-03) lastoraya: Thanks to save the old layout.
  • (2019-12-01) Victoria Lopes: Incrível prefiro mil vez o layout antigo. Obrigada!
  • (2019-11-21) ابراهيم مطرود: ggggg

  • (2020-09-23, v:1.0.6) Wetty Wu: Is it support Vivaldi?
    I used it on Vivaldi, which is one of a browser developed on Chrome, but there's no any change on my twitter page.
  • (2020-07-28, v:1.0.6) Camdogg07: I found a temporary workaround
    If you go on Settings > About Twitter > Directory, you'll see the old UI still exists. Maybe you could find coding to get back the old layout permanently somehow.
  • (2020-06-19, v:1.0.6) Mark Jones Composer: Extention no longer works.
    My suggestion is that - instead of trying to trick Twitter into using the Old Layout by using a User Agent, it would be far better to make this Extention a piece of HTML5 Code, which will be added to the browser changing the layout by using the HTML layout instructions to the Browser as seen by the User. That way, Twitter itself would remain unchanged, but the User would be able to see the Old Twitter layout.

  • (2020-06-02, v:1.0.6) Paul Chambers: Any Other Viable solutions?
    Twitter shutdown the backend that made it work. You should have had a banner from Twitter for the last couple weeks saying Legacy Twitter will be shut down on June 1st. I hate to see it go, too. I have Parkinson's disease and the new layout is not Parkinson's friendly. Sad, because my Twitter days are over without a different GUI. Anyone find something, reply to my comment, please. Tweetdeck isn't very good solution for me either, but some of you might like it. tweetdeck.twitter.com

    When June 1st hits, the old school version of twitter will be disappearing due to the masking software no longer working. Will you be working with or without others to rework your app to the new configuration or will this just be the end of Old school Twitter? Question for the app dev, not for randos.

    Is there any way you can eventually get rid of that banner? Love this extension and hate the new look for twitter. That banner is about the only thing I can't stand, but it is better new version. Was hoping that one day you can remove it with the extension all will be set right.
  • (2020-05-11, v:1.0.5) colet47: Old Twitter Layout

  • (2020-05-08, v:1.0.5) Thomas Beard: Have you seen the notice that started popping on Twitter the past half hour?
    "This is the legacy version of twitter.com. We will be shutting it down on June 1, 2020. Please switch to a supported browser, or disable the extension which masks your browser. You can see a list of supported browsers in our Help Center." I've really appreciated your extension, wish I had known about it sooner :)
  • (2020-05-08, v:1.0.5) Kit Farman: uBlock blocking content?
    I know this isn't just Old Twitter Layout, but it only happens on the old layout, not the new one. When using uBlock Origin, the timeline briefly appears then is blocked. I can't figure out how to unblock it :(
  • (2020-05-08, v:1.0.5) Bl00dyCh33rry: Whole layout broken

  • (2020-05-05, v:1.0.5) Luminosity Deville: popups
    Your extension for Chrome has caused popup windows to appear. I disabled every extension I had, reset Chrome completely and then added them back one by one. Yours was fourth, after LastPass, Adblock, and OneTab. Within an hour, I had four brand new popup windows floating on my taskbar. The longer I left it active, the more windows appeared, until I had eight windows plus the one I was using. I really like this extension, and hope you fix it soon.

  • (2020-04-24, v:1.0.5) Ben Morris: Clicking a tweet
    This is opening their profile in the background when you click on their tweet from your feed. So closing the tweet pop up box doesn't take you back to where you were on your feed.
  • (2020-04-19, v:1.0.5) Mabelline Maple: Metrics banner.
    Whatever you do don't click the Metrics banner and allow it to use metrics I allowed it to use metrics because I thought nothing of it I clicked allow to look at web page or whatever and went on with my day but through the day I kept getting a strange new window pop up that says something along the lines of "This Terrified Kitten Was Abandoned By A Dumpster, Then Something Amazing Happened" from a strange site and I'm like 57% shure it was because of this addon so if you wanna use this addon I suggest you use it along with an Adblocker or something that can remove the pink banner
  • (2020-04-17, v:1.0.5) Yuna언니!!: Allow metrics? haha what?
    please don't show it again ....if it still go on ...well ganna say bye bye
  • (2020-04-14, v:1.0.5) Bbaass_TMH: "Allow metrics" banner
    If you're gonna ask users for ANYTHING by putting a banner on a website, you really ought to put in the banner itself WHO or WHAT is asking the thing. Is it Twitter? Is it browser extension A, which does stuff to Twitter's UI? Is it browser extension B, which ALSO does stuff to Twitter's UI? Also explain what it is. If a user clicks the banner, does that allow metrics? Or does clicking the banner provide a popup where a user can choose an option? For now, though: "Old Twitter Layout" banner, say hello to Adblock Plus!

    need a way to actually reject metrics.
  • (2020-04-13, v:1.0.5) simon stevens: Big Pink Save Metrics Banner
    Your big pink 'Save Metrics' banner does not say what it's for; could be Twitter asking, or any rogue app, so is quite alarming when Twitter opened and shows it. Also it does not ask just once; it remains each time Twitter is opened if ignored, and there is no reject option to remove it.
  • (2020-02-20, v:1.0.4) Lady Asirpa: Hi
    It stopped working, and I don't know how to fix it. Can you help?
  • (2020-02-20, v:1.0.4) Mr. Spriken: Sadly stopped working as of today.
    After getting that stupid error message on twitter about needing to use windows 10 or update browser thing, it finally decided to stop working. This really sucks cause the updated twitter layout is horrible and I really enjoy the old layout I have been using for years. Is there still a way to keep this extension working?
  • (2020-02-20, v:1.0.4) Pat T: Retweet with comment jumping to new page
    When I updated to allow the new permissions, when I look an original tweet in a RT with comment, I'm jumped off the page I'm on and over to TL of the person who wrote the original tweet. Have to go back 3 clicks. Using Chrome browser. Very annoying.
  • (2020-02-19, v:1.0.0) Scott Howard: Error message on Twitter

  • (2020-02-12, v:1.0.0) Paulo Gontijo: Can't access notifications section
    Can't access my notifications when I click in notifications with the extension enabled, it redirects from https://twitter.com/notifications to https://twitter.com/i/notifications . Great app by the way !! Thanks.
  • (2019-11-17, v:1.0.0) Springles: Tweets opening new page
    After temporarily disabling the app because it seems to occasionally break videos, clicking on tweets to read comments now opens a new page instead of opening it within the current one, losing progress in the timeline. Re-installing the app, restarting the browser and computer do absolutely nothing and cache clearing also had no effect

    it randomly stopped working today!
  • (2019-09-03, v:1.0.0) Paul Chambers: Opening Tweets in new window
    Any plans to have tweets or replies popup in a new window instead of taking over the browser window and then leaving you at the author of the tweet instead of back at your timeline? Even if it just opens what you click up in a new tab would be a great fix. Right now I am having to right click and choosing new tab if I want to keep my existing timeline in place. Also, on a different subject, I am trying the new Microsoft Edge, https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/, (Google Edge Chrome if the link doesn't appear) based on Chromium, and enabled "Allow extensions from other stores" from its settings and went to your Google Chrome Store page (this one) and installed it on Microsoft Edge Chrome Beta. Works like a charm after a hard refresh!

  • (2019-08-11, v:1.0.0) Maggie Private: Trying to enable old Twitter Layout.
    This item has been disabled in Chrome. Enable this item No matter how many times I try to 'enable' it keeps the new Layout which NO ONE LIKES. I've rebooted, began fresh but still won't let me. Maybe Twitter has found a work-a-round. Seems to be forcing us to use the new one. Wonder why? Thanks for making this program for us. I'll keep trying.

    No Matter how many times I refresh, the new layout is still there.
