More About The Nitter Interface

Nitter is an open-source alternative to Twitter’s interface.

Nitter’s advantages are:

  • No JavaScript or ads
  • Lightweight (profiles pages tend to be 60 KB instead of 600 KB)
  • The client never talks direct to Twitter
  • Prevents Twitter from tracking your IP or JavaScript fingerprint

Nitter has several browser extensions maintained by the community.
