HOW TO: Filter Tweets And Facebook Updates

FB-and-TwitterToday Social Media is used for, well, almost anything and everything. Particularly Twitter and Facebook. Today I thought of sharing some useful stuffs related to them. Below I mentioned two useful scripts — Filter Tweets (script for filtering tweets) and Filter FB Updates (script for filtering Facebook updates). You can use these scripts for filtering specific topic.

Using Greasemonkey you can use these scripts. It is an extension for Mozilla Firefox, an open source Web Browser and I recommend you to use the latest version of the browser. Most userscripts are written for Mozilla Firefox & Greasemonkey alone. But there are some scripts which works in Opera, Safari and even Internet Explorer too. These scripts are developed by @varunkumar.

#1 – Filter Tweets : Filter Tweets is a script for filtering tweets about a specific topic. Works only with the new Twitter version.
