Description from store This extension shows a twitter feed in your new tab page. It is styled to be as minimal and distraction-free as possible. You can set it to use a list you created or any other twitter user's list as long as the list is public. If you want this to display your twitter timeline: 1. Create a new list on twitter. Name it anything you want, just make sure it's public. 2. Add everyone you follow to your list. This website lets you do that quickly and easily: http://twitlistmanager.com 3. On the options page for this extension, set the username to your twitter username, and the list name to the name of the list you just created. Click save. 4. All done! Remember, any time you follow a user you will also have to add them to this list, and any time you unfollow a user you will have to remove them from this list. I know this is an inconvenience but Twitter and Chrome impose strict limitations that require this. However, having a slightly separate feed from your timeline can be a nice feature. For example, try you can add news accounts to your list for this extension, so you get to keep up with the news but still only see your friends' tweet on your twitter.com timeline.

  • (2018-07-02) Matthew Rogers: Doesn't really work. Showed the correct feed on first load, but every new tab after that shows some other feed despite what the settings specify. Can sometimes get it to show correct feed if I shift-click on Refresh after opening a new tab, but that defeats the purpose.

  • (2014-11-15) David Vydra: I really enjoy seeing tweets when I open a new page.
