Recently we talked about the best third-party tools for Twitter which lets you delete all the tweets at once, and gives you the option to check out who unfollowed you, etc. However, adding certain extensions to your Web browser can bring in features that apps cannot. Here are the best extensions you need as a Twitterati.
Best Chrome Extensions for Twitter
1. Share on Twitter
Share On Twitter is the extension that I am using for years. This extension provides the option to select any text on Chrome and share it instantly on Twitter. It comes in handy while reading an article, news, or quotes, and wants to quickly share a passage on Twitter, without having to open it in a new tab. You can also click on the extension icon to share the webpage that you are currently on. Anyhow, once you click on the share option, you get the chance to edit the tweet before tweeting.

2. Rite Tag
Rite Tag is a hashtag extension for both Instagram and Twitter. Once installed, the extension helps you to get hashtag suggestions for images and texts on any site. Comparing to sites like Hastagify, Rite Tag has an advantage as this integrates extension suggestions right into Twitter. Anyhow you need to log-in to Rite Tag and click on the Hashtag icon in the Tweet box to start showing suggestions. Rite Tag also has another trick up its sleeve as it can scan any image on the web and provide a tag for it. All you need to do is right-click on the image and click on the “Generate Hashtags” option.

Chromnitweet is one of my favorite extensions on the list as it makes tweeting extremely easy. Just install the extension and type tw in the Omnibox, now you can just give space and start typing your tweet. Once you click on enter, your tweet will be posted on Twitter. There are no options, this is minimal that just gets the work done. If the extension not working properly, close the Chrome browser and re-open it after installing the extension.
4. Omnibox Twitter
Omnibox Twitter is an add-on to Chromnitweet. Chromnitweet can tweet from Omnibox, adding Omnibox Twitter also enable the option to open Twitter accounts directly from Omnibox. Just type “@” and give space and type the user name, this will directly open the Twitter account of that username or opens the search name if it can’t find the exact user.

5. Twitter Account Detector
Want to find the Twitter account of the website you are on, then Twitter Account Detector is an extension for you. It finds both the website’s main Twitter account and also the author’s Twitter account. It does a pretty good job of detecting the correct account, or else it suggests accounts that can be the closest accurate if it cannot.

6. Superpowers for Twitter
As the name suggests this extension offers super power (read features) on Twitter. Once installed, you get options such as mass follow, mass unfollows, mass liking, mass retweeting, etc. Just open any followers, following, likes, retweets, search results pages and you will see a new option called “Follow all”. Clicking on it will follow all the users on that page. As following or unfollowing many people at the same time is not allowed by Twitter, this extension follows or unfollows all of them with a small pause in between. Also, remember that this extension will not work when you close the tab or opens any page. You need to leave the tab beside until it completes the task.

7. Minimal Twitter
If you feel Twitter is a complicated mess, you can use this extension to removes the clutter such as Trends, news, who to follow sections from the sidebar. It also removes buttons like messages at the bottom right corner all the time. Additionally, you get options such as adjusting the width of the feed, removing the Tweet button at the bottom, etc. So, if you aren’t a fan of Twitter showing the trending news (which has nothing to do with your interests), now removing them is easy.
Install Minimal Twitter
Chrome Web Store has a lot of extensions for Twitter which are not updated for the new Twitter. But among all, these are the few extensions that work and got updated with time. Share on Twitter and Twitter Account Detector are my favorite, what’s yours? Do let me know in the comments below.
