It’s easy to love Twitter, but sometimes you just wish you could get more out of its limited Web interface. That’s whereGreasemonkey scripts come in. Using Greasemonkey scripts you can nest replies, silence noisy twits, retweet to other services, and more. Here are over 20 that are sure to vastly improve your Twitter experience.
What are some of your favorite Greasemonkey based Twitter enhancements?
Nested Twitter Replies - Provides you with nested replies so that you can better follow conversations as they happen. The only flaw is that all replies are attached to the last post by the original poster, so if they tweet quickly, you could end up with some odd conversations.
Endless Tweets - While this script will do a few things for you like show members on Google Maps if they have entered coordinates, the most exciting aspect is the pre-loading of extra pages. As you reach the bottom of a page of a person’s tweets, instead of clicking to go to the next page, this script will add them to the bottom of the page for continuous scrolling.
Intercepter 1.2 - This replaces all TinyURLs with the actual URLs of the site they direct to so you will no longer need to guess what sort of site you are heading for.
Keyboard Shortcuts Enhancement - Gives you keyboard shortcuts in several different services, and with Twitter it will let you focus on the text area, advance pages and more.
Now Shoosh! - Ever follow someone because you felt you had to, but don’t want to be stuck reading their updates? “Now Shoosh!” will hide their tweets from your view, and if you wish to restore them someday, you can.
Reverse Tweet Order - Reverse the order of tweets on a page so you see the oldest first. A great way to catch up if you’re behind on reading your timelines.
Summize Replies - For those times when you can’t see your replies on Twitter, this will take you to replies directed at you on Twitter Search.
Twitter Friend Name Helper - Working like most contact lists, name suggestions appear as you type, eventually allowing you to click on the name of the person to complete your “@” or “D” communication with them.
TwitPic Previewer - Get a preview of a pic stored on TwitPic before you click on the link and head over to the site.
Twitter @Reply To A Specific Message - Places a link in your reply to the post you’re replying to so people can see what your message is about.
Twitter Emoticons from Yahoo! - Replaces the plain old text emoticons with images from Yahoo.

Twitter User Classify - Shows you with just a glance how a Twitter user rates on Evan Prodromou’s scale of TwitterCaster to TwitterSpammer.
Twitter_Lite - A Twitter client you can open up anytime, anywhere on the Web by hitting shift-T. Gives you some abilities such as searching Twitter, looking up related items on Flickr, switching timelines and more.
