I've been playing with Greasemonkey a bit lately as I wanted to refresh my Javascript/DOM foo. I needed something to build, so I searched in my big red plastic bucket of irritations and knocked up a user script that lets you hide Twitter tweets from a definable list of users without actually unfollowing them - so you can selectively ignore people for periods of time without them being any the wiser - thus avoiding any potential awkwardness. Social networks are delicate things - they're made up of humans, after all.

(This was inspired during SXSWi, when half my Twitter follow list went and I didn't, and the endless noise about it got quite wearing - but I didn't want to unfollow anyone as my Twitter universe is generally quite lovely and interesting).
