Nitter: A Lightweight Alternative Interface To Twitter

Nitter is a free and open-source alternative Twitter front-end.

Nitter’s advantages are:

  • No JavaScript or ads
  • All requests go through the backend — the client never talks to Twitter
  • Prevents Twitter from tracking your IP or JavaScript fingerprint
  • Lightweight (profiles pages tend be 60 KB instead of 600 KB)
  • RSS feeds

There are also many other instances of Nitter. It is about 15 times lighter than Twitter.

Nitter has several browser extensions maintained by the community.
